In all cases, be prepared to show photo I.D.
There may be times during the year when it is necessary for a parent/guardian to take their student from school for part of the day.
If you know in advance of a scheduled appointment please send your student to school to expedite the sign-out process. The written note should include:
- Student’s name
- Time to be released from class
- If applicable, permission for release to a specific, named emergency contact. Note: the contact must already be listed on the student’s Emergency Contact Form.
- Signature of parent or guardian and contact number.
First, the student shows the release note to their teacher at the appropriate time. The student will be released from class and must bring the same note and report to the office. The student may be signed out in the office by the parent or guardian. Or, students with written notes may sign themselves out and meet their parent at the gate.
Parents who come to sign their student out of school without a note will need to come to the attendance office, show ID, and wait while their child is summoned from class. Please plan your appointment times accordingly. Summoning your child to the office can take 5-15 minutes. You may call ahead so that a summoning slip can be created prior to your arrival. However, it will not be sent until you arrive at the office to sign your child out.
Any other person signing out a student must be listed on the student's emergency card. Written permission must be explicitly stated in a note for an emergency contact to sign out your child.
For early releases, we cannot release students to emergency contacts without specific, written parental consent. This is a district policy.
