Early Dismissal - No Early Sign Out Policy

A letter MUST be sent in if your child has to leave early.

Here at P.S.65, we pride ourselves on providing a quality education for our children.  We have had an inordinate number of children signed out early for a variety of reasons.  We are not starting to enforce a NO EARLY SIGN OUT POLICY except in dire emergencies.  In order to provide uninterrupted lessons we ask that you cooperate with us on this issue.

To maintain order and to ensure the safety of all children no child will be dismissed between 2:00PM and DISMISSAL (except in cases of emergency).  The reason for this is that during this time children are summarizing the day, copying homework and preparing for the following day.  Additionally, it is also during this time that bused children are transitioned to the cafeteria.

Students in Pre Kindergarten and their siblings must be picked up at 2:20PM everyday.

Students in grades K, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 must be picked up at 2:20PM each day.  Students have to be signed out of the office after 2:30PM.
