Gaiser Middle School is a closed campus. This means that once a student arrives on campus, he or she may not leave. When a student needs to leave during the school day, the student is required to bring a written note from the parent/guardian to the attendance office in the morning before school. If the pickup time is on the note, the student can be in the attendance office waiting.
Parents/guardians must check in at the attendance office, show photo ID and then sign out their children when taking them out of school early. If someone on the student’s emergency contact list is picking up the student, the name of that person needs to be on the note. Per VPS policy, the parent/guardian must authorize each and every pickup. All people on the emergency contact list must be at least 18 years of age. If the child returns during the school day, the parent/guardian should sign in the student or provide a note to the attendance office.
