Dismissal Change Request Forms
Every day we get approximately 30 - 50 dismissal change requests in the office, both by notes and by phone. We will continue to use the Dismissal Change request Forms for all communication regarding upcoming vacations, late arrivals, and carpool notification for the 2009-2010 year. All notes are sent to the office and logged on the Daily Dismissal Form and then emailed to the classroom teacher. We ask that all dismissal change requests be in by 2:00 each day. This will allow us time to provide timely information to our classroom teachers so that we can ensure that your child goes to the correct place. We understand last minute emergencies do come up and will be flexible. However, your cooperation with our 2:00 deadline is appreciated.
The normal school day is over at 3:45 PM. Early dismissals as well as extensive time out of the classroom (i.e., extended clinic visits) are recorded and count toward your child's attendance. It is important that your child be in school each day and we encourage you to schedule your appointments outside of the school day as much as possible. Please remember that if you are picking up a child for early dismissal, you may want to come a little earlier in case your child needs to be called down by the office. It does take a few minutes to get things together.
Vacations other than the regularly scheduled district vacations are discouraged. In the even that students must be taken out of school, teachers should be notified as soon as possible. Please use the Dismissal Change Form to note the dates the child will miss from school. Make up work will be required to be completed as determined by the classroom teacher.
