Visiting the School
How would I go about picking up my child during the school day?
First, please check your child out during the day only when it is absolutely necessary. Believe it or not, we have so much to teach that instruction must go on until the very end of the day. You can help by making appointments after school hours whenever possible, and avoid checking out a child simply as a convenience factor. However, if you do need to check your child out of school, you must do this through the office. You will need to present your I.D. every time you check your child out. The only people who may pick up your child are those you authorized on the Student Release form. Let the office staff know you need your child to be sent to the office, sign your child out on the appropriate form, and please have your driver’s license or some other form of photo ID ready. Under no circumstances should parents report directly to the classroom and try to take the child without going through the office.
My child’s birthday is coming up. Can I have a party in the class, bring a cake for lunch, or send flowers to school that day?
The Deer Park ISD Student Handbook states that parties, refreshments, or flowers/balloons for student birthdays are not allowed. Unfortunately, this policy applies to any sort of special occasion or celebration. Your child's safety, well-being, and education are our top priority. Many disruptions during the academic day would result in loss of instructional time. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
