Elementary School

 

Restricted release information is kept in the main office. When an adult asks to sign out a child, the office secretary checks the restricted release list to make sure the adult is authorized to pick up the child.

 

Student Sign Out/Dismissal During School Hours:

  1. Parents/Guardians are asked to send a note to the school indicating their plan to take their child from school prior to dismissal. This information, including the adult who is picking up the child, is recorded in the main office.

  2. Parent/guardian/authorized adult requests to sign out their child. A photo ID is presented, unless the parent is known to the office secretary. The adult signs the log book.

  3. The secretary calls the student to the office using the PA system. Pre-K, and K children are accompanied to the office by their teacher or staff member. Students in the Health Office are escorted to the office by the nurse. If a teacher is outside with the students, two procedures may be used. One, the parent is given a yellow pass, indicating that the parent has signed out the child in the main office. The parent presents the pass to the teacher and the child may leave with the parent. Two, main office personnel contact the teacher with a walkie-talkie and the child will be sent to the main office for the dismissal.

Student Sign Out at Dismissal Time:

  1. Parent/guardian/authorized adult requests to sign out their child. A photo ID is presented, unless the parent is known to the office staff. The parent signs the log book.

  2. The parent/guardian/authorized adult is handed a pass, with the child’s name on it. The parent waits for the child in the school lobby. When the teacher brings the class to the lobby for dismissal, the parent presents the pass to the teacher, who allows the child to join the parent. Upon exiting the front doors, the parent returns the pass to a staff member, who checks to make sure that the child is exiting the school with the parent.
