We’d like to remind students who drive to school that you must purchase a Skyline Student Parking Pass from Ms. Brewer in the Main Office. Students may only park in the Student Lot. Students' cars found parked in the Staff Lot or the Visitors Lot will be towed at the owner’s expense.
This is a reminder that Skyline is a closed campus and students are not permitted to leave campus during lunches. Please note that any student who leaves campus is subject to disciplinary action.
Student Arrivals and Departures
Students: please remember that you must be dropped off and picked up at the Student Entrance before and after school each day. No drop-offs or pick-ups are allowed at the Visitors’ Entrance or the Bus Stops. Please note that students who arrive late to school should proceed directly to class as we are no longer issuing hall passes for late arrivals.
