Dismissal
Dismissing Children During the School Day:
  • Please be advised that early dismissals are very disruptive to the classroom and should be limited to emergency situations.
  • Due to the State's regulations regarding learning time we cannot dismiss students on a regular basis before 3:25 P.M.
  • Dismissals are also recorded on student report cards and attendance records.
  • Repeat dismissals will be referred to the Dartmouth Public Schoolís Attendance Officer for appropriate action.
  • If your child is being picked up by someone other than his or her parent/guardian, authorization must be included in the dismissal note.†
  • When picking up your child from school, you will be required to come to the office to sign him/her out in our dismissal log. Please do not go directly to your child's classroom.† We will then dismiss the student via the intercom system.†
  • Any person attempting to dismiss a child who is unknown to school office personnel will be asked to provide a valid driverís license.
