permitted after 3:45 P.M. This is an extremely busy time of
day in our front office and our classrooms. Last-minute

our students and create too-frequent interruptions in our
classrooms. Safety is our highest priority, and to ensure
students are dismissed safely in the way parents intend, we
cannot allow changes or early check-outs between 3:45 and
4:15 PM. Please make arrangements for afternoons before
your student leaves home each morning, and contact our
