Occasionally, parents need to pick up their children before dismissal time. This may be difficult if the student has not had time to prepare for the departure. It may also cause disruption in the flow of instruction for the class that they are leaving. It is necessary, therefore, to follow a procedure that allows facultystaff, parents, and the student to accomplish this task expediently and with as little disruption as possible. If given prior notice of early pick-up, the office can ensure that the student is waiting in the office when the parent arrives.

Late Pick Up fees will be assessed to parents if their children in K2 - Gr. 5 are picked up more than 15 minutes after the published Dismissal Time. Fees will be $5 for every half hour late, or any increment thereof.

Important: Please note that parents will not be allowed to pick up their children from the classrooms before first coming to the office and signing them out. The pass they get from the office must be left with the security guard at the gate.
