  • Student Early Pick Up

    We ask that you send a note with your student in the morning if he or she has an appointment and needs to leave school early. We will have your student waiting for you in the main office with advance notice. Please understand that if you come to school without prior notice to pick up your student, there will probably be a delay, so please be patient.

    Also, if you need to pick up your student close to the end of the school day, you will need to arrive no later than 1:50 PM. We will not be able to retrieve your student from a classroom after 1:50 PM because staff is already preparing for dismissal. You will have to wait until dismissal time (2:12 a.m.) for your student.

    We appreciate your cooperation and attention to these matters that help our school to maximize classroom time, focus on learning, and run efficiently.
