Dismissal Procedures

  • If you are picking your child up and arrive early, please wait in the main hallway or outside during the nice weather. We cannot have parents waiting in the main office this year due to issues of confidentiality and the noise constraints while our clerk and family liaison take phone calls.

  • All Special Start parents will pick their child up directly from the outside facing classroom door.

  • Please wait along the side of the main hallway where the water fountain and benches during dismissal. We need to keep the area in front of the windows and the doors clear for classes to exit the building in an orderly fashion.
    If you need to dismiss your child early, for exceptional circumstances (e.g. illness or doctor’s appointment), please come to the main office and we will have your child dismissed to the main office. Please do not go directly to the classroom.

  • If you need to make a change to your child’s dismissal procedure please call the main office prior to 12Noon. Any later makes it very difficult for us to ensure the change gets communicated to the classroom teacher properly.
    We have nine large yellow buses and two small vans that need to line up in front of the school during dismissal. Please DO NOT park or pull up in front of the school for any length of time during dismissal. It can be tempting to do so when there is empty space, but we need to keep it clear at all times so the buses can pull in as soon as they arrive.

  • 4th and 5th grade students are being dismissed out of the side doors by the playground. If you are picking up your child who is in one of those grades, please wait by the side of the school for them to be dismissed.
