I need to pick up my child from school during the school day. What process must I follow?

You will need to obtain a "Permit to Leave" for your student. If you wish to request a Permit to Leave for your student, please call the Attendance Office at least two hours ahead of the desired release time.  This will allow your student to be waiting for you and avoid unnecessary delays.  Failing to call ahead for a Permit to Leave can delay the release of your student and will increase the level of disruption to the classroom learning environment.  Be aware if your student is in PE, it could take up to 20 minutes to notify them and allow them to change clothes. The Permit to Leave number is 682-7670, ext. 4444.

I have a question and don’t know who to ask. Where should I start? What is the best way to contact someone?

Due to limited hours and phone coverage, the best way to ask a question about College Park is by e-mail. The e-mail can then be forwarded to the appropriate person. For a list of office staff, please see Office Staff on the school website under the Administration Tab. The Position Title might help you to determine the best person to ask.

If you don’t know where to start, please send an e-mail to Ms. Cheng in the main office and she will direct you. Please allow 48 hours for a response.

Don’t forget, you can always use the Search Box on our school website to obtain helpful information.

I need to pick up my child for an appointment during the school day. How do I do that?

If a student must leave in the middle of the school day, the student must get a “Request to Leave” permit. Please see instructions for how to do this on the Attendance Office page. It is best to call ahead of time. Students who leave without obtaining a “Request to Leave” permit before leaving, will be marked truant.
