Star Achievers provides a rigorous enrichment program ranging from performing arts to STEM.

Early Dismissal

Parents, guardians, and other approved caretakers need to report to the office and sign the Early Dismissal book before a student is allowed to leave the school grounds. No student may leave the school grounds without being signed out by an authorized caretaker. Parents should not go to the classroom to pick up a child. The child will be called to the front desk and the authorized guardians will wait in the front entrance.  In addition, parents are encouraged to send notes from home if an early dismissal is needed.  You may also send an email the operations manager in advance.  Students will not be released without written authorization by the parent or legal guardian.
