Picking up students during the school day...

It is district policy that ONLY parents may pickup children during school hours. We will call your student out from class once you are inside the building and have signed your child out on the blue form. Please do not call ahead - we can't have students waiting unattended missing instructional time. Parents can authorize an Emergency Contact to pickup their student by giving the office written notice. Emergency Contacts must show photo identification. 

There is NO early pickup after 3:15PM, and any student messages (go to car loop, walk home, etc) must be called in BEFORE 3:00PM.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
