Reunification

Parent-Student Reunification is a process where parents/guardians will be asked to pick up their children from school or an alternate location in a formalized, controlled release. The goal of reunification is that all students remain safe while in the school’s care until they are reunited with families. Students will be released ONLY to parents/guardians or other adults who are listed as emergency contacts and who present a picture ID such as a driver’s license, military ID, or passport. Please make sure all emergency contacts are updated and accurate.
