Dismissal Changes

DISMISSAL CHANGES are accepted until 2:00 p.m. (M, T, TH, F) and 1:00 p.m. (W)

 

EARLY CHECK-OUTS (for any reason) must be completed by 2:10 p.m. (M,T, TH, F) and 1:10 p.m. (W).

 

Your respect for our dismissal policy helps maintain safety and security as we complete attendance/dismissal change/check-out reports accurately before students prepare for and move to their dismissal stations. It is often very difficult to locate students or get them ready to leave early during the last minutes prior to dismissal bell. Teachers and students are completing lessons, packing up, or on the move to dismissal stations.

 

Thank you for your understanding and compliance as we work together for all students’ scholastic success!
