Leaving Early

  • Students may be signed out of school early by their parents or other adults designated by the parents.
  • Parents or other designated adults need to go to the front office and sign out the student. The office will call the classroom and the student will come up to the office. At no time should the parent go to the classroom to get the student.
  • When signing out a student, be sure to have a photo ID ready.
  • Parents will not be allowed to sign students out during the last 20 minutes of the school day. This means that students must be signed out before 2:30 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and before 1:30 on Wednesday.
