2021 - 2022 Checkout and Attendance Procedures

    Mountain Brook High School strives to provide a safe and healthy environment for students and staff. The following checkout procedures have been developed in order to promote a safe environment for individuals when checking out.

    FACETIME is used for all checkouts at MBHS. Please follow the NEW guidelines when checking your student out. FaceTime hours are 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

    • Have your driver’s license or a picture ID ready for verification when calling in.
    • Only the contacts listed in the student’s record will be allowed to request a checkout.   
    • Checkouts are limited to “same day” only.
    • There is only one line, so if the system is busy, please wait a few minutes and try back. 

    How to Add HSattendance email to your contact list 
    Open FaceTime icon Contacts: click button to Add Contact then add to “add email” hsattendance@mtnbrook.k12.al.us

    How to Use

    • Open FaceTime on your iPad or iPhone
    • Location hsattendance@mtnbrook.k12.al.us you added above

    FRONT DOOR CHECKOUT for those parents who do not have an iPhone or a “non-driver” student, you can check out your student at the front door without entry into the school.

    • Ring the doorbell to activate the front door system.
    • The front desk will answer and you will present your driver’s license or a picture ID in the screen area with your checkout request.
    • Only the contacts listed in the student’s record will be allowed to request a checkout.
    • Once the above steps are completed, your student will checkout.


    All parent and medical excuses are sent to hsattendance@mtnbrook.k12.al.us within three days of the absence or a detention will be issued.



    • Students are allowed FIVE pre-arranged (PA) absences per school year.
    • A request is submitted in advance by a parent through the hsattendance@mtnbrook.k12.al.us email no more than two weeks prior to the absences (s). If plans change, please notify Bebe Burkett in order to correct the attendance file.
    • Students are responsible for notifying their teachers prior to the absence (s).
