Pine Ridge Middle School — Bell Schedules

Due to the safety & security of our students, there will be no early dismissals after 3:00 PM without administrative approval.  
We cannot guarantee phone messages taken over the phone will reach your student. A student who plans to leave school before the dismissal bell with someone other than their parent/guardian must have a written note from his/her parents stating the time and reason for his/her dismissal. This note should be turned in to the office. Before leaving school, the student should report to the office to be signed out by the office personnel. 
Everyone is required to show a picture ID when signing students out. Students must never leave the building without a parent or guardian signing them out in the office. Students returning from an early dismissal must report to the office before going to class.
