Keep in Mind...

~Arrival/Dismissal is a very busy time for school staff.  Please avoid having in depth conversations with teachers/staff at that time.

~Please make sure that your child's teacher sees you when picking your child up.  We do not dismiss any child without making eye contact with the adult. 

~Please try to be on time to pick  up your child.

~Please do not crowd dismissal doors.  All children will be dismissed in a timely manner. 

~We only dismiss to adults listed on the Blue Emergency Card.  It is important to keep any/all information on the card updated. 

~Late students are brought to the Cafeteria.  Please report to the Main Entrance to retrieve your child after dismissal doors close. 

~Only students in Grade 4 & Grade 5 are permitted to walk home.  A written, signed note MUST be on file before any child is permitted to walk home from school.
