R 2330 Student Early Dismissal Procedures

The following procedures apply:

  1. The building principal or designee shall not excuse a student before the end of the school day without a request for early dismissal by the student's parent/guardian.

  2. Requests shall be in writing. Telephone requests for early dismissal of a student shall be honored only if the caller can be positively identified as the student's parent/guardian.

  3. Children of single-parent families will be released only upon the request of the custodial parent; i.e., the parent whom the court holds directly responsible for the child, and who is identified as such on the school record.

Additional precautions may be taken by the school administration, appropriate to the age of students, and as needs arise.

Parents/guardians have the obligation to advise and provide up-to-date documentation to the building principal regarding any change in the legal and/or physical custody of the student. The building principal, at all times, has the authority to investigate and confirm the custodial status of a parent/guardian if the principal has inadequate information or reason to suspect that false or incomplete information has been provided to the School District.

Students shall not be permitted to answer any personal phone calls, except those from the parent/guardian or other persons having legal custody of said pupils. Emergency messages will be delivered to the students.
