Student safety is our primary concern for our Bobcat Community. 

We believe that student safety, attendance and accountability for students during the school day are all important.


Email early requests to: 


Early Release Requests

  • Please have your student bring a note from you on the morning of the day they require early release.  He/she should personally hand the parent note to the Front Office personnel and wait to receive their pass.

  • Without prior written notice, a pass will be delivered to your student once the parent has arrived on campus to make the request in person. Please understand it will take time to retrieve your student from class.

  • We cannot accept phone calls requesting early release and are unable to take last minute phone calls to have students waiting in the Front Office for parent arrival.

  • If you choose to email us, a pass will be prepared and waiting in the Front Office for your student to pick up during passing periods or during their lunch period.  Please be aware that due to the volume of emails we receive, there may be a delay in preparing a pass for your student.  Please send emails as early in the school day as possible.

  • In the event of an emergency, the student’s principal and attendance personnel will be notified to approve release.  A follow-up written note/email from the parent is expected to confirm the emergency.

  • Students will NOT be checked out after 3:00pm without prior written notice given to the Front Office personnel. 

  • If siblings/emergency contacts are picking up students we must have a written note/email from Guardian even if they are on the contact list.

  • Byron Nelson High School is a closed campus, therefore, students are not allowed to leave the campus for lunch.


With the passage of Texas State House Bill 5, we are no longer able to disrupt a

classroom through the use of telephone or intercom.
