New Student Checkout Procedure

Due to the number of disruptions caused in our classrooms, the latest you may check students out will be 2:40 pm (unless there is an emergency). This means that students may be checked out for necessary appointments during the day up until 2:40pm. After that time, students (and parents) will need to wait until the final bell to become car riders.
