Early Dismissal--Parent Request: A written note is required from the parent/guardian prior to picking up a child during the school day. A student who leaves school during school hours before regular dismissal due to illness, appointments, or any other reason, must be met in the school office or the nurse's room so that the parent or designee may sign the student out.

No student may leave the school property on their own accord from the time he/she arrives in the morning until the appointed departure time.
