Students requesting early dismissal on a one-time basis to attend a scheduled appointment should contact the Attendance Office. Parents/guardians must send a written request to the Attendance Secretary. Your child's safety is paramount to us. We will call to verify the written request. Parents/guardians must provide the school with a phone number for us to verify and validate. Please Note:  Only people pre-approved by you and currently listed in the system are allowed to pick up your child.  Students will not be dismissed if we cannot reach a parent/guardian.

    Juniors and seniors who wish to take advantage of Early Dismissal/Late Arrival must understand that this is a privilege. Students who have advisement either first period, or at the end of the day can apply for this privilege by contacting Assistant Principal Jo Ann Aspenleiter.  All requests must be verified with the student’s parent prior to officially receiving an early dismissal on their schedule. This privilege will only be granted if the student is academically eligible. Students must:

    • Sign in/out with the School Safety Officer in the foyer daily; failure to comply may result in the loss of this priviledge. 
    • Have their Student ID in their possession and be identified appropriately.
    • Be off-property until their class begins or directly after the class ends.

    Students whose grades fall below a 2.0 GPA, are repeatedly tardy to classes, or found in the building when they should not be, may lose the privilege. They may be assigned an Academic Advisement class, and if necessary issued a consequence.

    Juniors and seniors who have been approved for a schedule change which includes either a Late Arrival or Early Dismissal can receive a GREY bus pass.  To receive this pass, you must live more than 1.5 miles away from School of the Arts. 

    In order to enter into the building, students with Early Dismissal privileges who have rehearsals, games, or practices after-school, MUST obtain a Sports/Activity Pass from the coach or the coordinator of the after-school event. Students will NOT be allowed to enter the building before 3:30 PM.  

    If you have questions, please e-mail Assistant Principal Jo Ann Aspenleiter at Joann.Aspenleiter@RCSDK12.ORG.
