General Reminders 
Other Reminders
                           In order for a student to leave school during normal school hours, a parent must sign the child out in the school office. The school secretary or aide will call the classroom to get the student and take him or her to the parent in the school office. No child will be released to any adult at the classroom door other than a school designated employee or school appointed volunteer. We ask that you refrain from picking up your child before the end of the school day when possible. Please schedule your doctor, dentist, or any other appointments before or after school or on a scheduled day off. If not possible, the office must have a written note by 10:00 a.m. letting the office know your student will be leaving early. Students will not be permitted to be picked up before the end of the school day if the office has not been notified in writing that the student has an appointment. Faxed or emailed notes will not be accepted after 10:00 a.m. If a parent or guardian comes to the office to pick up a student before the end of that student’s school day and the office has not been notified of an appointment, those seeking to pick up the student will be directed to the car line.
