Please do not call the school for early dismissal except in the case of an emergency.

Early dismissal of children can be arranged through the office.  Please send a note to your child's teacher including the following information: 

  1. The reason for dismissal
  2. The time he or she is to be dismissed
  3. Who will pick up the child

No child will be dismissed to a person other than the parent of the child unless a note has been sent from the parent. Please come to the office and your child will be called to the office. We wait until parents arrive so that students do not miss more class time than necessary.
