Early Dismissals

Early dismissals for students may be obtained as long as parents or guardians make the requests. These requests must be made in writing. 

Early dismissal requests should include a valid telephone number where the school can reach the parent/guardian who is making the early dismissal request. Should the school not be able to reach someone to verify the early dismissal, the student may not be able to leave. 

Written requests must be submitted to the attendance desk or main office upon the student’s arrival at school that day. 

Students leaving early and missing a class or classes will be counted absent.  Period absences shall also be coded "lawful" or "unlawful" based on DCS 4400-R Section 102. Click here for a list of lawful absences.  

Before any student leaves the building for any reason, whether or not escorted by a parent, he/she must sign out in the main office.
