Early Dismissal

Whole School: In the event of inclement weather that would indicate early dismissal of school, the School District of Pickens County contacts the school, local radio stations, and posts the announcement on the website.

Parents and guardians should view the website and/or listen to local radio stations to determine the status of early dismissal of school.

Individual: Students who need to be dismissed early should bring a note to that effect from their parents or guardians. The note should be given to the student's teacher, who relays the information to the front office. 

At the time of individual dismissal, the parent or guardian should report to the front office to sign the student out before the end of the school day. The student is then called from the classroom to the front office and dismissed from the office to the parent or guardian.

Excessive Early Dismissals

Excessive early dismissals without acceptable cause will be reported to the attendance supervisor.
