During party hours, your student may leave only in the company of his/her parent or another parent that is designated in advance. A signed note must be on file with our check-in committee. The parent or designated adult MUST come into the school to pick up the student and MUST show his/her ID in order for the student to be released to them. Remember - students who leave early will NOT be allowed to return to the celebration.
