    If early dismissal becomes necessary...

    Every minute is precious with regards to your child's education. If the need to dismiss your child becomes absolutely necessary, you may do so by coming to the Main Office before 1:40 p.m. After 1:40, we will be unable to dismiss your child and you will need to get in the car line with your sign displayed.  Because every minute counts, parents are asked to strictly limit the number of times they request an early dismissal of their child/children.
