    REQUEST TO LEAVE SCHOOL EARLY

    Local Board Policy, No. 6112, prohibits the early release of students from school for private lessons, tutoring, or other similar instruction (i.e. dance lessons, gymnastic lessons, etc.) unless the student is certified as a Child with Special Needs and the tutorial program is included in the student’s Individual Educational Plan (IEP).  There is also no provision in State or Local Board Policy that authorizes the early withdrawal of a student simply for the convenience of the parents.  It is the duty of parents under the NC Compulsory Attendance Law to require their child or children to attend school for the entire period of time which school is in session.  If a child must be dismissed from classes early, a written request should be sent with the child on the morning of the early dismissal.  The date, time, and reason for leaving early should be included in this written note.  Except in emergencies, medical and dental appointments should be made outside of school hours.

    A CHILD WILL BE RELEASED ONLY TO PARENTS UNLESS THE SCHOOL HAS BEEN NOTIFIED IN WRITING BY THE PARENT OR GUARDIAN THE THEY HAVE GRANTED PERMISSION FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO PICK UP THEIR CHILD.  THIS PROCEDURE IS FOR THE SAFETY OF THE CHILD.

    The parent, guardian, or authorized person must come into the school office and present identification when signing the child out.  We will call your child to the office.  Teachers have been instructed not to release any child without authorization from the office.  Do not go to the classroom and interrupt the class to pick up your child.

    If you need to take your child from school during the school day, we request that students not be dismissed between 2:00 p.m. and 2:50 p.m. because this time is too close to dismissal time.  If your child needs to leave school for an afternoon appointment, please pick him/her up before 2:00 p.m. ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS!
