REFERENCE THE DONEGAL SCHOOL DISTRICT CODE OF CONDUCT FOR SPECIFICS



Early Dismissals



A student must present an early dismissal request signed by his/her parent or guardian to the office before 7:45 a.m. These forms are available in the office.



Early dismissals must be approved by the administration before the student is permitted to leave school. The mere fact that the early dismissal is approved does not necessarily mean the absence will be coded excused.



A student who is granted an early dismissal must sign the sign-out sheet located in the office.



Eighteen-year-old students who are not considered independent and self-supporting must still have a parent's signature on early dismissal, absence, or tardy notes.



Students who become ill during the academic day must report to the nurse and sign out through the nurse's office or the student may be subject to disciplinary procedures.



Failure to follow proper early dismissal procedures may result in a violation of the discipline code.
