    Please remember to follow the dismissal procedures in the Parent & Student Handbook:

    * Dismissal-related notes should be sent in first thing in the morning.  "Surprise" end of the day pickups are discouraged and oftern create confusion for staff members and students.

    * Parents who pick up their children from school MUST first sign them out in the front lobby and show ID.  Once you have followed the established procedure and retrieved your child from the library, please leave school grounds promptly so that the front area is clear and we can begin loading our students on to the buses.
