Thanksgiving Break Check-Out Procedures

With Thanksgiving break approaching, to ensure a more efficient way for you to check your child out of school during the day, the following procedure should be followed:

  • In an effort to avoid interrupting instructional time on the intercom, students MUST have a note designating the time that they should meet you in the front office.
  • Notes should be brought to the front office in the morning for authorization. The signed note will allow your child to leave class at the designated time and meet you in the front office.
  • Students without notes will not be called out of class until the parent arrives.
  • Transportation changes must be made prior to 3:00 p.m.
  • NO check-outs without a note after 3:30 p.m.

Riding on Another Student's Bus - IMPORTANT INFORMATION

In the past, parents have been able to send a request to their school asking for their child to ride a bus home with another student for childcare purposes.

Due to COVID-19 and our efforts to manage bus ridership, assigned seating, and support case investigations, buses can only serve the students that are assigned to the bus.
