Picking up your child before the end of the school day

  • Occasionally you may find it necessary to remove your child from school before the end of the regular school day.

    If you are picking up your child for early dismissal:

    • Send a note to the teacher so preparations can be made. If an emergency situation makes this impossible, a phone call to the school office will suffice, preferably before 3:15 pm.
    • Come to the office and sign them out on the computer. Your child will be called from the classroom at that time to meet you in the office. (We do not call students down in advance to wait in the office.)
    • Please do not ask your child to meet you in the office, parking lot, or at the door. Your child must be released to someone who is listed on their Emergency Contact form - we may ask for verification of  their identity. To insure the safety of the children placed in our care, it is essential that parents follow these procedures.
    • Early dismissals after 3:00 p.m. are extremely disruptive to the whole classroom. We ask that you refrain from picking your child up after that time unless it is absolutely necessary.
