Dismissal and Early Dismissal

posted Sep 26, 2016, 11:22 AM by


With the largest elementary school population in North Andover and only one secretary in the office, dismissal time can be hectic. To provide a smoother dismissal and to ensure students are dismissed correctly, if there is to be a change in your child’s regular dismissal procedure, a dismissal note should be written and sent to school with your child that morning. No calls with dismissal changes will be accepted after 2:00 PM. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us to create a smooth and safe school dismissal for all.


On Early Release Wednesdays during the school year, the dismissal time is 1:45 PM for all students. These Wednesday dates are as follows: (9/14, 9/28, 10/12, 10/26, 12/7, 12/21, 1/4, 1/25, 2/1, 2/15, 3/1, 3/15, 3/29, 4/12, 4/26, 5/10, 5/24, 6/7)

On all other Wednesdays, dismissal will be at regular time (3:00 PM). All Wednesday dates not listed above will be full days and thus students will be dismissed at 3:00 PM.

On Half-Days, dismissal will be @ 11:50 AM for all students. These dates are as follows: 11/23, 6/23 (Scheduled last day of school with five snow days.)
