Can graduates leave before 5:00am?
In order to be dismissed, graduates should have their parents/guardians notify the Jamaica Jammin’ coordinators PRIOR to the event. If such a notification does not exist, parents are called –any time during the night- to be notified of their child’s wish to leave and asked to come take them home.
What happens at 5:00am?
