Student Arrival and Dismissal

Early Student Pickup Reminder

One of the new new procedures we are implementing this year pertains to calling students out of the classroom after 3:00 p.m. We have found that calling students out of school early takes at least 15 minutes. Due to transitioning and dismissal procedures, students will not be called out of class after 3:00 p.m. Please plan appointments accordingly. Emergency situations will be considered.

Please remember to bring your ID with you to the school office when you are signing out your student early.  Allow yourself extra time; students need to be called out of class and pack up, which takes a little extra time. Thank you.
