If a student needs to be released early for appointments, or any other family related plans, parents/guardians are asked to notify the school no later than that morning. The procedure is for the student to bring a note to the teacher the morning of the early pick-up.
If someone other than the parent/guardian will be picking up a student, the office will need to be notified ahead of time with the name of this person. This should be written in the note for early release.
The parent/guardian will need to meet their student in the office to sign them out at the scheduled time.
In the rare case that you are not able to send a note in the morning for an early pick up, we ask that you call at least 1 hour prior to the pick-up time.
No Early Dismissal after 2:45 PM.
The procedure is in place to help limit disruptions both in the office and in the classroom finding students.
