All school personnel are to be instructed to refuse requests for children to leave the school
grounds once they have come to the school or have been deposited there from the school buses
or other vehicles. Children shall remain on the school grounds from the time they arrive until
the time of their departure for home except as follows:
1. No school or grade may be dismissed before the regular hour for dismissal except with the
approval of the Superintendent or designee.
2. No teacher may permit any individual student to leave school prior to the regular hour of
dismissal except by permission of the Principal or his/her designated representatives.
3. No student may be permitted to leave school prior to the dismissal hour for any reason
unless permission of the parent or guardian has been first secured, nor sent home unless a
responsible adult is at the home. Any student being released during the school day must be
released through the school office when he/she leaves and must report to the office when
he/she returns, except that students who are ill may also be released through the Nurse’s
office. Students will be released only when legally authorized by the parent or legal
guardian. Students traveling on school buses to school-sponsored activities will return from
the activity on the bus. (Extenuating circumstances will be considered on an individual basis
and must be approved by the Principal or designee prior to the event.)
