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 call the office with the reason and
time of departure and send a note with your student to school to expedite the
sign-out process. The written note should include:
- Student's full name
- Student's Grade
- Time to be released from class
- If applicable, permission for release to a specific, named emergency contact. Note: the contact must be already 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 Redwood’s 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 at least 1 hour ahead
so that a summoning slip can be created prior to your arrival. We will work
hard to get your child to the office in a timely manner, but we do not have the
personnel to deliver last minute slips without a wait.
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.
