When can I check my student out of school?
Children will not be released from school at any unscheduled time without a written explanation from the parent or guardian. A parent or guardian wishing to check his or her child out of school early must first come into the office, sign the student out, and have the student paged to come to the office. The office may require verification of the right of custody or identification from anyone requesting early dismissal of a student.
For your child’s protection, it is very important that the procedures are followed.
