RELEASE OF STUDENTS FROM SCHOOL   Policy Code:   4210

The safety of students is a paramount concern of the board and school district. The principal or principal's designee will make reasonable efforts to determine that any person appearing at a school and requesting permission to take a student from the school is properly identified before the student is released to him or her.

In no case will a person other than an authorized parent or guardian be permitted to take a student form school until or unless the principal or designee is satisfied that such person has the approval of the authorized parent or guardian, except in the most extreme circumstances as determined by the principal/designee. However, if the parents are divorced or separated, the student may be released to either parent, unless the school has been provided with a copy of a court order or agreement that specifies otherwise.

If the principal or designee judges that the student's health or safety may be harmed by releasing the student, the principal will contact law enforcement and/or the department of social services as appropriate.

Schools are encouraged to develop guidelines as necessary to implement this policy.
