The note should have the name of your child and the change in dismissal for that day. Please date and put your child’s homeroom on it. We do recognize that rare occasions emergencies will sometimes happen and in those cases we ask that you either e-mail Mrs. Perreault at perreaults@bsd-ri.net or Mr. Brissette at brissetted@bsd-ri.net .
