Afternoon Dismissals- Safety First!!
--School dismisses at 2:45 p.m. for Kindergarten through Fifth grade students. Car riders will dismiss from the gym. For the safety of all the children, please remain in your car during dismissal. Bus Riders will dismiss from the upstairs while all other students will dismiss from the gym. Walkers will be dismissed through the gym front doors on Mingle Avenue. Our Pre-K students are dismissed at 1:15 p.m.
--A written note must be sent to your child’s teacher if your dismissal plans change – even for one day. NO PHONE CALL CHANGES WILL BE ACCEPTED.
***Under no circumstances will a student be allowed to leave with anyone other than the parent or guardian without a written notice signed and dated by the parent or guardian.
--Please limit early dismissals – your child is missing learning even in the last few minutes of the school day! Students should be in school every day until normal dismissal time. When a child leaves early, it is disruptive to all of the children in the room. A medical/dental excuse is required for early dismissals otherwise it is recorded as an “unexcused tardy out”.
--If early dismissal is necessary, please arrive before 2:15 p.m. The office will not to dismiss students between 2:15 p.m. and 2:45 p.m.
--Students will not be dismissed early between 2:15 – 2:45 due to the safety of all students and school procedures.
--SCHOOL TRAFFIC FLOW: Please drop children off on the one-way street named Ramona Court on the south side of the school. Due to parking challenges, we ask that parents do not park in the parking lot to drop off children – this causes staff members not to be able to enter the parking lot. Please remember never to park in the driveway or near the cafeteria doors between 7:00 a.m.- 8:00 a.m. or between 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.
Thank you for your cooperation.
PLEASE DO NOT PULL INTO THE STAFF PARKING LOT DURING DROP OFF OR PICK UP TIMES. Parent parking is along Mingle Avenue and Belmont Heights Ave.
