A student may not leave the school grounds between the start of school 8:05 AM and regular dismissal 3:05 PM unless he/she submits a parental note for early dismissal. Early Dismissal notes must be presented to the Main Office at the start of the school day. The student must be signed out before leaving the school grounds by a parent or emergency contact
Parents who establish medical appointments after the student is already in school should call the main office to arrange for orderly Early Dismissal of the student. Please do not leave messages about early dismissal on faculty voicemail or e-mail
