In an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students we are making a slight change to our student dismissal procedure. Students will continue to board the buses and vans as normal, but parent pick-up will have a change. If you are planning on signing your student out at the end of the day, you will need to be there by 3:25 PM, if you are after that your students will have to ride the bus. Students will be dismissed from the same door as they have been using, but the person who has signed out the child must come to the door before the child is released. We are no longer going to dismiss the children all at once to go and find the person taking them home.
We do not want the children walking or running out into traffic or navigating through the parking lot looking for their parents while cars are moving. Escorting your child to your car is a safer practice. We will do our best to keep this process moving quickly. Please feel free to walk up and make a line along the sidewalk at or before dismissal. We will start to release students at the bell. I would also like to encourage you to park off to the right, away from the vans. This will make the parking area less congested.
As always I appreciate your attention to this matter and please know that all decisions were made with the safety of all of our students in mind. I am asking that you please continue to use caution when driving on campus. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me anytime.
