All children must be picked up by a parent/guardian or an adult approved by the parent and school.  The school reserves the right to refuse any individual to come onto our property for drop-off or pick-up if they have created a problem.   

All persons (including parent/guardian) authorized to pick a child up from the school must be listed on the Pick-Up Permission form.  We require one person listed on the form to be available within a reasonable time (not to exceed a total of 2 hours, call and pick up) to get a sick child or a student CIJS has determined needs to go home.  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to properly fill out all forms and make changes whenever necessary.  In a custody situation, the parent/guardian signing the child into our school takes the responsibility to ensure this is in accordance with their court agreement (a copy must be attached to the enrollment forms if any limitation of rights is stated on the form).  CIJS is not responsible for maintaining compliance on any custody situations or parent time-sharing agreements. CIJS will only ensure that any person picking up is authorized according to the pickup list.  If a parent/guardian who is not listed or believes the information provided is inaccurate, they must provide a copy of “court order” supporting documentation to correct the form.  The Pick-up Permission form will be updated and certified annually.

At the Open House, parents will be given two tags per family.  Each tag will have their child’s first and last name along with the zone (1, 2 or 3) written on it. Any additional tags needed may be charged at $1.00 per tag. Requests for additional tags should be emailed to the office at charterschool@CIJSstcloud.org.  When using the pickup line, please bring this card with you. If you have multiple families in the same carpool, please clearly display each card. Student names will be announced to facilitate a quick transition of students to their waiting parents in the line. Parents without cards will be directed to pick-up their children in the front office.
