Pickup of students at Dismissal

Dismissal is a very hectic time in a classroom. To make the process run smoothly if your child is being picked up at dismissal, you must send a note to school in the morning stating the date, child's full name, and the name of the person that is picking him/her up. This person must be on your approved pick up list or the school must have written notification in advance signed by legal guardian. School staff can't take changes over the phone. Please do not call or arrive unexpectedly at dismissal time, as this creates confusion in the office and classroom. While emergencies do arise, please plan ahead by writing a note so we can be sure that your child arrives home safely. Parent Pick-up will take place in the back of the school, near the back playground. Every child must be signed out; parents may arrive at 3:15 to begin the process. Students being picked up will be called to the gym at 3:30 PM. Anyone picking up a child must present a valid photo ID.  We have implemented a new number sign system for cars.  Students that are regular Parent Pick ups will be issued a sign and number to make the process of Pick Up easier.  This allows more cars to be loaded at a time.
