    Early Pick-Up Procedure

    In order to ensure your student is ready for early pickup, we ask you to send in a note to your child’s teacher in the morning or call the Turnpike Main Office (518-233-6822) before 1:30 pm.* You must have your state I.D. with you when picking up.

    *If you have not made previous arrangements with the main office and arrive after 1:30 pm you will have to wait until dismissal to take your child home.
