*Please understand that the last 15 minutes of the day is a very busy time at the front office and across the school.  Picking up children early within these 15 minutes causes significant disruptions.  If, for any reason, your child needs to be picked up early we ask that you please pick them up closer to the beginning of the last block of the day, which starts at 1:45pm.
