If it is necessary for a student to leae school early, a parent or an adult listed on the authorization card must come in the office to check the student out. Classes missed will be excused for the same reasons as a full day excused absence. Any student absent for an excusable reason is responsible for completing work missed as a result of leaving early. No student is to be picked up after 2:30 p.m. unless he/she has a doctor's appointment in order to be fair to all parents who wait due to traffic. Please do not ask our front office to be lenient on the policy unless one has proof of a doctor's appointment. Please keep in mind that learning is our focus and it is very hard when one is missing valuable instruction time.
