It is very important that students know in advance if they are to walk, ride the bus, or be picked up by a parent/guardian or day care. Any changes must be submitted in writing to the main office or the classroom teacher in order to assure notification of the student’s mode to getting home. We will not take changes over the phone for the safety of your child.Students should arrive at school no earlier than 8:00 a.m. Students should never be left unattended in the front or the back of the school. They must be supervised by a parent or guardian until Brentwood staff picks them up to go inside at 8:00 a.m.All students arriving after 8:40 a.m. will be required to report to the Main Office for a tardy slip. Upon arrival students will proceed to the hallway where designated spots are assigned by grade level. They will remain in this area until the teacher picks them up at 8:25 a.m. by the first bell.Students will not be checked out early after 3:15 p.m. If a student needs to arrive at school before 8:00 a.m. or cannot be picked up promptly at or by 4:00 p.m. he/she should be enrolled in a before or after school program (fee charged).Teachers will not release a child to anyone who appears at the classroom door. If a parent comes to school to pick up a child during the school day he/she will have to come to the office and will be asked to show a photo I.D.A member of the office staff will contact the classroom and request that the child be sent to the office. Anyone other than the custodial parent will not be allowed to take a child out of school without notification from the parent or listed on the blue card. If there is a court order concerning custody of a student, a copy of the court order must be given to the school.
