Important: New “Authorized Pick Up Forms”

In our continuing effort to improve security at the school, especially during pick up time, we have created a new procedure.

From now on,

  • anyone picking up a child early

  • any new (unfamiliar) person wishing to pick up a child


must first obtain an “Authorized Pick Up” slip at one of the reception desks.

If a teacher/aide does not recognize someone coming to pick up a child, she will ask that person to report to a receptionist. At the front desk, a receptionist will confirm that the person wishing to pick up a child is authorized to do so. The receptionist will issue an Authorized Pick Up slip to take to the child’s teacher.

The new pick up procedure helps the school and Square Gator keep track of children that have left early.  Additionally, if the child is in a specialist’s class it will help that teacher (who may not be familiar with the child’s parents or other regular pick up person) verify that the person wishing to take the child from school is authorized to do so.

Thank you, once again, in assisting us with our effort to improve security at the school
