Picking up Students Early

Greetings Parents and Guardians-

Please be advised that students cannot be picked up after 2:00pm from their classroom. After 2:00pm, you will have to wait until classes are dismissed as per their regular schedule- which is shortly thereafter.

In general, we are finding many parents coming early to pick up students which is causing a loss of instruction for your child, as well as effects their attendance and disrupts the entire classroom as the teacher now has to stop teaching to assist with the dismissal. Additionally, please be reminded that it effects attendance as well. Attendance is based on your child’s time in school; once they leave, they are no longer present.

I highly encourage you to schedule appointments for after school hours and not pick up children early unless it is an emergency situation.

Thank you for working with us to ensure your child has the best education possible.
