Biloxi Public Schools Library PTO BJH Home
The Biloxi Public School District supports the philosophy that the instructional program is the most vital part of formal education. Experience has shown that a high quality of work is virtually impossible with irregular attendance; therefore, students are expected to attend school at all times when school is in session.
7:45 a.m. - 3:07 p.m.
The parent(s)/legal guardian(s) must contact the school before 9:00 a.m. on each day the student is absent from class. The pupil accounting office phone number is
435-2751 or 435-2752.
In cases of unreported absences, the pupil accounting office will attempt to contact the parent, or the student will bring a note to pupil accounting by 7:45 a.m. from his/her parent/guardian on the day the student returns to school, stating the specific reason for absence and phone number.
NOTE: In order to participate in any extracurricular function, students must attend school a minimum of four (4) periods on the day of the activity.
If the student is late at the beginning of the school day, the parent must call the office and/or accompany the student to be checked in: otherwise, the tardy will be considered unexcused, and the student will be given detention for thirty (30) minutes at the end of the following school day.
A cumulative total of five (5) tardies to school, per term, as recorded by the office, even when a student is accompanied by a parent or when the school is informed by telephone, may result in the student's being subject to additional disciplinary action.
Check - Out Policy:
When a student becomes ill or an emergency arises during the regular school day which may warrant early dismissal, the student must report to the nurse's or principal's office. Before the student may be released from school, a parent, legal guardian, or person authorized by the parent (on the registration check-out form) must come to the school office and sign the student out.
**Identification is required when signing a student out of school. No student will be released to a person who is not authorized and/or does not have identification.
