Important Reminders For Parents & Students
Students Arriving Late
Students arriving at school after 8:20 must report to the attendance office to sign in and get a tardy pass. Failure to sign in will result in a disciplinary infraction and ISS. Students who miss more than 45 minutes of a class will be considered absent. Hall sweeps will be conducted as a deterrent for tardiness.
Early Dismissal By Parent Request
Students requiring early dismissal should bring a note from their parents to the front desk in order to obtain an early dismissal pass. All requests are to be submitted prior to 8:15 a.m. so that they may be verified by phone. The note must have a phone number at which the parent may be contacted. If the note cannot be verified by phone the student will not be allowed to leave. We cannot accept phone calls for early dismissal. Students will not be issued a tardy pass if they fail to bring their note to the front desk before 8:15 a.m. SJHS will not call classrooms unless it is an emergency; therefore, the student must have a pass to get out of class. No early dismissals are allowed from 3:00-3:15 p.m.
When it is time for students to leave, they are to go by the front desk to sign out. Students who do not bring a note for a pre-arranged medical or legal appointment must remain in class until the period ends before they will be permitted to sign out of school with their parent/guardian. Failure to sign out at the front desk will result in a disciplinary infraction and an assignment of ISS.

On Tuesday, April 20 from 5-8 PM we will be hosting a Drive Through Spirit Night at the Murrells Inlet Chick Fil-A. You need to order onsite (drive-through only) and when you mention St. James we will get 15% of each sale! We had a lot of success with the Chipotle Spirit night, and that is due largely in part to your involvement and helping to spread the word (and to Jones for bringing the whole Varsity Softball team by!), so we’re hoping that we can have some repeat success and you can get some tasty nuggets. Or a sandwich. Or a milkshake if you’re feeling fancy. Please feel free to share this information to your friends/family and on your social media! The more the merrier.
