If you need to pick up your child early from school, please give written notice in advance to your child’s teacher (an email is sufficient). When you arrive to collect your child, please stop by the school office and to sign them out and to have someone send your child to the office. If the early pickup was unanticipated, a note must be provided to the school office at the time the student is collected from their classroom. All students leaving early must be signed out at the school office.
Unless a parent has been called to pick up a sick or injured child or in the case of a family emergency, no student will be dismissed during the last 30 minutes of the school day: between 2:30 and 3:00 PM on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and between 12:30 and 1 PM on Wednesdays and all other “half days.” Teaching and learning is still happening at the end of the school day and important information is shared during that time. This policy was designed to ensure students feel prepared for the day and week ahead by not disrupting end-of-day classroom routines.
