ARRIVAL & DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
As we begin a new school year, we want to share our procedures for arrival and dismissal. Please be patient with us during the first two weeks as families are adjusting to new schedules and routines as well as the children learning new routines. We have purchased a new system for dismissal that, after routines are established, will help the dismissal process be safe and dismissal. It will only work if we have everyone's cooperation. Our main goal is to ensure that every Scholar gets home safely.
We will continue to have two drop off sites (see graphic below). When students enter the building they will be seated in the hallway outside their classroom. Students are tardy at 7:45 a.m. Please do not drop off students before 7:30 AM.
At the end of each day students will be dismissed from the back hallway on the east side of the building. In order to do this efficiently and safely we NEED your help and patience! Below are our procedures for picking up your child.
Car Riders will be dismissed at 3:10 p.m. to a grade level specific area for dismissal. All car riders will be picked up by the last doors on the East side of the school. The earliest cars will begin to be loaded is 3:20 p.m. Families must remain in their cars while waiting. Please do not walk up to the doors of the school to pick up your child when children are exiting the building. Each family will receive two car tags. Additional or replacement car tags will be $2.00 each. These will be ready for pick up on August 11th at the Pop in Party or sent home on the first day of school with the oldest child in the family.
To ensure safety of all children and an efficient dismissal process, all parents or guardians must display the car tags when they enter the school driveway. Put them on your rear view mirror so they can be easily be seen. Leave the tag hanging until you leave campus. If you do not have a car rider tag, you will be asked to go to the front, which will cause a delay in your child's dismissal. You will need your ID to come in and pick up your child/children.
CHANGES IN DISMISSAL
You can no longer contact your child's teacher about a change in dismissal. All changes MUST be made through the office.
You MUST call the office prior to 2:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On the early out Wednesdays, all changes need to be made to the office by Noon. If you want to request a an alternate plan for dismissal. This would include someone else is coming to pick up your child, changing from bus to car rider, etc.
Early check out and late check in will remain contactless. The information will be on the back of each car tag.
Bus Riders will be dismissed at 3:10 PM: The buses will pick up and drop off in the back of the building.
