Rules and Procedures
For the health and safety of the students, please schedule their leaving home so as to arrive at school no earlier than 8:50 a.m. Currently start time at Los Amigos is 9:23 a.m. This will enable the supervising staff to be prepared to receive them and prevent over-exposure to severe weather conditions.
The Palmdale School Distirct requires Los Amigos School and other district schools to maintain a “closed campus” for the safety and protection of all children. Students must stay on the school grounds from the time that they arrive until dismissal at 3:15 p.m. unless they are signed out through the office by a parent or another adult listed on the emergency card.
Student Dismissal During School Hours
Students dismissed during school hours must be signed out in the office by the person checking the student out of school. Students may only be released to the parent(s) or to the persons indicated on the student’s emergency card. There will be NO over the phone releases unless approved by the administrative staff. In an emergency situation, when a parent needs a student released to someone other than the persons indicated on the emergency card, the parent must do the following:
Send a written request, signed by the requesting parent, with the person who will be responsible for picking up the student. Provide the name and description of the person you authorize to pick up your son or daughter (the authorized person must show proper identification). The request needs to be signed by the parent who registered the student for verification purposes.
Failure to follow these steps will result in the student being released at the end of the school day in accordance with the normal dismissal procedures.
Any student dismissal that leaves the student’s welfare in question shall be handled at the discretion of the site administrator or designee. Should any such situation become a disruption to the school, the sheriff’s office will be contacted and an officer will be requested to intervene. We respectfully request that parents make every attempt NOT to involve Los Amigos School in custody matters.
Students must be picked up on time, and not be left in the office waiting.
