Is Your Child Leaving School Early?

Although it is our hope that our students stay for the full duration of the school day, if your child needs to leave school early please follow these guidelines:

  • Contact your child's teacher at least one day in advance via email, note or phone call.
  • If something comes up unexpectedly, please make all efforts to contact your child's teacher AND the front office prior to 2:15pm.

We understand there are extenuating circumstances, but if time allows, please let us know of any changes well in advance.
