Dear Parents and Guardians,
On Wednesday, March 1st, the Tift County High School Blue Devils travel to Newton, Georgia, to participate in the third round of the State Basketball Play-offs. Tip-off time for the game is 7:00 PM. We anticipate that many of our students will want to attend this game to support our Blue Devils. Due to concern for our students’ safe travel to the game, we are allowing students who will be attending the game to leave school at
11:35 AM on March 1st provided they do the following:
- Return the Permission Form below to the Attendance Office BEFORE the beginning of first block on Wednesday, March 1st. This Permission Form must be signed by the student’s parent or guardian, and the parent or guardian must provide a telephone number where he can be reached in the event that the school needs to speak with him.
- Bring a ticket stub from the game to the Attendance Office on Thursday morning, March 2nd. The student’s name should be clearly printed on the ticket stub.
Students who return the Permission Form and bring a ticket stub to the Attendance Office as requested will not be marked absent for 3rd and 4th blocks, but students are expected to complete all assignments missed. Any student who checks out of school to attend the game without following these procedures will be marked as absent, and this absence will be unexcused.
