Foothill has a closed campus. Students may not leave campus without checking out at the front office.
Students who need to leave school during the day must have a parent or guardian call the attendance office at (925) 461-6600 and then press "1" before the time the student needs to leave campus. A pass will be written and ready for the student to pick up in the office before leaving campus.
If a student becomes ill during the day, he/she must check out through the health office (also in the front office).
Classrooms cannot be interrupted to notify a student of an appointment.
If a student is expecting an early dismissal, he/she must come to the attendance office throughout the day to confirm if the appointment has been arranged. Validation is requested for medical or dental appointments.
Leaving campus without prior parental permission or without checking out through the front office will result in detention.
