The dismissal will then be put on the attendance which is emailed to teachers.  At the time of dismissal, the student just needs to come down and sign out at the Main Office. The parent does not need to come into the school. TELEPHONE DISMISSALS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.  If you need to dismiss your student unexpectedly, you must come into the school and show ID.  All dismissals due to illness must go through the school nurse.
