Procedure for Student Pick-up/Removing Students from School

Student Pick-up/Removing Students from School

In cases of illness or emergency involving students at school, the school will contact the parent/legal guardian or relatives/friends listed on the student’s emergency card. ONLY individuals listed on the student’s emergency card will be permitted to pick up the student. Any person picking up a student for illness or emergency after being contacted by the school will be required to show identification and to sign the student out using the school log before they pick up or speak to the student. (E.C. 49408)

If a student is being picked up for any non-school related reason the person removing or picking up the student must have written permission from the parent/legal guardian even if they are listed on the emergency card. In all cases, the site administrator will be notified that the student is being removed from class or being picked up. Even with written permission, access to speak with the student may be denied at the discretion of the site administrator in an effort to reduce interruptions in instructional time.

In the case of medical and other such appointments, the person picking up a student must be over 18 years of age, have written permission to pick up the child from school during school hours for the day of the appointment only. The written document must specify the name of the person who may pick the child up from school during school hours, the specific date, the purpose, and it must be signed by the parent. The school will obtain a photocopy of the identification of the person picking up the student, attach it to the parent’s note, and document the information in the student’s electronic file. Notes for ongoing or future appointments will not be accepted.

If the person picking up the student does not have written permission, the school may contact the parent to obtain written permission either in writing or by email. Without parent permission, a student may not be released to a family friend/relative, even if they are listed on the emergency card.
