School Sign-out Procedures

If you need to sign-out a student during the school day, please be aware of the following procedures that keep your student safe at school:


Any students being picked up early must be signed out by a relative / adult that is listed in Infinite Campus. Parent's can list adults allowed to pick-up their student in the Parent Portal. If an unlisted adult needs to pick up a student, the listed Guardian MUST call the school office at 614-365-5923.

Starting April 7, 2023, Ohioans who are 17 years and older can receive an ID card at no cost. https://publicsafety.ohio.gov/static/free-ID-palm-card.pdf


If your student has a doctor’s appointment after 3:00 or you just want to pick them up early, please sign them out BEFORE 3:00pm. This will prevent the interruption of the teaching process. Students are dismissed at 3:15. We appreciate your concern for your students continued and uninterrupted education. We thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
