STUDENT DISMISSAL PRECAUTIONS
The School Committee seeks to safeguard students by requiring procedures for excusing students from attendance at school. The building principals are directed to develop and implement administrative procedures for dismissing students, subject to the approval of the Superintendent. It is understood that procedures may vary from school to school due to differing ages of the students.
Students will be released only to parents, legal guardians, and persons who are specifically authorized in writing by parents/legal guardians to pick up the student. If the building principal/designee has reason to question the authenticity of any written or verbal communication regarding the release of a student, the parents/guardians shall be contacted for confirmation. The building principal/designee has the authority to deny the release of students to unauthorized or unknown persons.
A custodial parent/guardian who wishes the school to comply with provisions of a court order to restrict access to a child is responsible for providing a certified copy of such order to the school.
