Leaving School Grounds
Emerson is a closed campus. Students cannot leave the school grounds during school hours without permission. For safety reasons, students are also not allowed to leave the campus and return before or after school. If a student is leaving with a parent, the parent must come in to the school to get their son/daughter and must sign out with the attendance clerk. If someone other than a parent is picking the student up, written permission from the parent must be provided. Students will be released only to designated names on the emergency card upon verification of identification (ID).
