The parent or authorized adult to whom the child is being released must sign the child’s time sheet and record the time.

Your child must remain on campus to participate in after school auxiliary programming. If your child is checked out of school for any reason during the day, they must be checked back into their division's office before dismissal in order to participate in After3. For Special Care Days, your child may only be checked in and checked out once per day.
