Parents and guardians are urged to schedule doctor, dentist, or other appointments outside of school hours or on school holidays. If a child needs to be dismissed early, he/she should bring a note to the teacher stating the departure time and reason. Parents or guardians must sign the child out in the school office. The office will not call down your child from the classroom until you arrive. Chicago Board of Education policy mandates that students who receive an early dismissal are subject to loss of attendance.
