Frequent early school dismissals are a terrible hardship on families.  Parents under financial stress, working parents, multi-child families, single parents, and many other caregivers have no good childcare and/or transportation options to manage early school dismissals.  We urge you to find a family-friendly way to provide teachers with the planning time they need.
