NEW Authorized Pick-up Cards for ALL TIS families

All TIS families will now be issued durable, weatherproof Authorized Pick-up Cards for each child. The card lists the child's name, parent name(s), and all the people you have authorized to pick up your child for the '09-'10 school year. For security purposes, the card simply lists names - there is nothing identifying the school or the fact that this is an authorization list.

Anyone picking up TIS students from anywhere on campus (the classroom, waiting areas, drive-through pick-up, or elsewhere) must present the authorized pick-up card and a photo ID - even if you believe the staff member recognizes you.

Anyone picking up a child from school early (even if they are regulars and have an authorized pick-up card) should check in with the front desk to get an “Authorized Pick Up Slip.” This will minimize disruption to specialist/English classes (so those teachers won't have to stop teaching to check ID.)

For Drive-up Pick-up, please use these new durable cards with your photo ID instead of the old-style cardstock card from your summer packet.

How to get your card: Homeroom teachers will be giving the cards to parents during the first week of school. If you can't get your cards from your teacher, please check with a receptionist. Each family will be issued 3 cards. If you need additional cards, please contact Jhoanna Co, JCo@intlschool.org. Please note it may take up to a week to receive your extra cards.

Exceptions:

  • If you don't have your Authorized Pick-up Card with you, please stop at the reception desk to show your ID and to have the list checked.  A receptionist will issue you a temporary Authorized Pick-Up Slip which you must then present to the teacher.

  • If you want to give someone temporary permission to pick up your child (i.e. for a playdate, relative in town, rare occurence), please fill in a Pick-up Release Form at any reception desk. The person picking up your child must then stop by the reception desk to present ID before going to pick up your child.
