The SPECIAL EARLY DISMISSAL schedule will have an impact on lunch for students, create a condensed schedule, and may require staffs’ lunch/prep times to be moved to the end of the day. School principals will set forth a schedule that is appropriate for each building.
Parents of elementary and intermediate students should make arrangements to receive students at home if there is an early dismissal. Either arrange to be home early, or arrange for a relative or neighbor to provide supervision. Parents need to let schools know of any changes for early dismissal. Please inform your child of your plans in the case of an early dismissal.
