NEW Dismissal Policies
For the safety of our students and your convenience, the end of the day/dismissal policy is slightly changing (similar to the elementary procedures). 
If your child is being picked up anytime before 2:25 p.m., you must continue to follow the policy of coming into the building to sign out your child.
Any parent picking up their child(ren) at the dismissal time of 2:25 p.m. will need to pull along the front curb (same as morning drop off).  You will need to pull completely to the end of the sidewalk. 
At the dismissal bell, students being picked up by a parent will report to the cafeteria.  One of our staff members will be at the curb with a clipboard for you to sign out your child(ren).  Please have ID available. 
If your child will be picked up on a daily or regular basis, please complete the attached form and return it to school ASAP (additional forms are available in the main office).  Only those names listed on this form will be permitted to pick up the student listed during the 2014-2015 school year.  A new form will need to be completed yearly.
If your child will be picked up randomly, you will need to send in a note with your child that morning, so that he/she can be added to the sign out sheet.  The note should state the child's full name, grade, and the name of the person picking up your child. 
Emergencies will be handled on a case by case basis.
Thank you for your cooperation.
