Time Away from Campus Guidelines Staff members may be granted permission to leave school for either thirty (30), sixty (60), or ninety (90) minutes during the school day only through the use of a Golden Ticket. Ms. Daggs must receive the Golden Ticket for Time Away From Campus at least 24 hours in advance. Permission will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the daily quota is reached, no further Golden Tickets will be accepted. Staff members must sign out in the Sign-Out/Sign-In binder in Ms. Daggs office before leaving campus and sign back in upon their return. Staff members who must be absent from school for longer than ninety (90) minutes will be required to enter an absence into TSSI for either a half day or a whole day, depending upon the length of the absence. Please note that there will be "blackout" days when Golden Tickets cannot be used. Leave for any length of time on these days will require staff to enter an absence into TSSI for either a half day or a whole day. Golden Tickets may not be used to leave campus on the school day before a major holiday (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mardi Gras, Easter) or during the last two weeks of the school year. Golden Tickets cannot be used to leave campus on the days of PBIS rewards.
