Check Out Procedure

Checking students out of school is strongly discouraged especially from 2:30-3:30 p.m. However, we do understand that sometimes it is unavoidable. If you must check your child out, please do so before the last hour of school. In the event you must check your child out during the last hour, please provide the front office with a doctor's note the following day. This is to ensure consistency in the procedure and minimize interruption in the classroom. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
