Early Release Policy

The school discourages releasing the students from school during the instructional day.  Parents are strongly encouraged to make doctors’ appointments during those times that the child is not at school.  However, the school understands that there may be times of exceptions for an early release.  Please be mindful that a pattern of early release requests are noted and may impact the academic achievement of your child (ren).
Any parent, who requests that a child be released from school early should arrive at the Main Office and request that the child is sent downstairs for early pick up.  The parent is required to sign the child out from school in the Main Office. Please see suggestions to ensure that your child is ready at the time of early release.
  • Only those persons on the Blue Emergency Card have your authority to pick up your child from school as an early release.
  • In the event that you have assigned someone else, kindly call the school and provide us with a written letter with your signature authorizing the person to pick up your child from school early. The person must be over 18 years of age and have a picture ID with an address on it.
  • Have your child give the letter to his/her teacher to ensure that the child is ready at the time of your request.
  • Please be mindful of the daily lunch and teacher prep schedule (for example- Gym, Art) and how it may impact the early release of your child (ren).  Teachers, who are not given prior written notice, will be unavailable during lunch and/or prep period.  This will cause a delay in providing your child with his/her personal belongings and requires the custodial staff’s availability to open the classroom for your child.
