Dismissal Procedures for Elementary Students

IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR PRIMARY 

Primary parents will no longer be allowed to pull students from the walkout line during dismissal. All students will be dismissed from the gym beginning with bus riders FIRST. All other students will be dismissed after all buses have left the circle. They will be walked out and parents may then take their child.

Reminder: All intermediate students who walk home will get on the last bus and ride to the Middle School where they will be dismissed to walk home. This will provide a safer route as they will use the crosswalk and have the traffic controlled by the school crossing guard. Intermediate parents may not park and walk in to pick up students at the end of the day. Parents should use the car pickup line following the procedures shown below.

Even though we have very organized and specific procedures in place for dismissal and student pick-up, intermediate parents need to be mindful that there are 18 classes of primary students who will be dismissing only twenty minutes prior to intermediate dismissal. Many of these students have never been to school and this will result in congestion for about the first week of school. Bus drivers will be delivering new students to new addresses. The buses will be later arriving back to pick up our intermediate students. This will also result in your students arriving home a little later than usual the first week.

THEREFORE, INTERMEDIATE PARENTS – EXPECT DELAYS THE FIRST FEW WEEKS.

We want our parents informed and prepared for intermediate pickup, and each parent needs to become familiar with the TWO dismissal procedures that will be followed throughout the year. The video below illustrates and states the procedures that students and their parents will follow at the end of each day. If everyone will review and know these procedures, we are confident that we can keep our students, your children, safe.
