Early Check-Out

It is disruptive to the class when a student is signed out early. Parents are strongly encouraged to schedule doctor’s appointments outside normal school hours. If an appointment is scheduled during the school day, please send in a doctor's excuse within three days.

Students who need to leave school early must be signed out in the office. Teachers will not release students unless they have been signed out. This provision is for the safety of our students.


In an effort to increase the safety of our students, anyone you approve to pick up your child during the school day must have their name listed on the back of your child’s locator card, which is kept in the office. Therefore, you must provide the names of all people you give permission to pick up your child.


Please do not pick up your child between 2:00 and 2:30 in the afternoon. Teachers are concluding the school day at this time, assigning homework, etc. Your cooperation will make the close of school day much smoother for everyone.
