(Parent(s) or legal guardian(s) may provide written permission for students in grades 3,4, and 5 to be dismissed to walk home unescorted)

Early Pick-Up

We believe students belong in school for the entire school day. We ask that all appointments be scheduled outside of the school day. If your child must leave early from school, we ask that you do the following:

  1. The Main Office must receive written parental/guardian notification with the date and time of the appointment the morning of the dismissal.
  2. The parent/guardian must sign the student out in the Family Support Provider's Office.
  3. Students can not be picked up after 2:30 p.m. This is an important transition period and students are receiving homework instructions and performing the end of day routines.
