Changes In Your Child's Dismissal Procedure

If you know your child is going to be dismissed early, please send in a note indicating the time and who will be dismissing your child.  If the adult is not the child’s parent they must show a valid ID to dismiss the child.

Also, if your child will be changing how they get home from school (walk, car, or bus), please send in a note informing the teacher of that change.
