CHILDREN ARE NOT TO BE DROPPED OFF TO SCHOOL BEFORE 8:30 A.M.  We do not have staff available to monitor student safety.  Students who are not participating in a school-sponsored activity or a teacher’s help class should not arrive before 8:30 a.m. 

** After 8:45 a.m., parents MUST come into the office and sign his/her student in. ** 

Parent Pick Up Procedure  

Parents picking up their children from school must park in the parent parking lot and come to the office to sign out their children.  The children will be called to the parent pick-up area corridor at 3:25 p.m.  Classroom instruction will not be disrupted for early dismissal unless a note is presented from the parent or guardian at the beginning of the school day for medical appointments or other urgent reasons.  FOR SAFETY REASONS, PARENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO GO DIRECTLY TO THE CLASSROOM TO PICK UP THEIR CHILD.

The procedure for picking up your child is as follows:  Please be prepared to show a driver’s license. Names of any persons picking up a student MUST BE on file in order for the school to release the child or confirmation MUST be given by the parent or guardian.

1)    Parents MUST BE at the Elementary School at 3:15 p.m. to sign out students.

NOTE: Students will be put on the bus to go home if their parent is not on the premises!

2)    Parents MUST sign student’s name and teacher's name on "PARENT PICK-UP" sheet.

*Parents who send in notes to pick-up their child at the end of the day need to follow the same procedure.  If a parent doesn’t report to the office before the buses are called, the child will be put on the bus.  If a parent is running late, they must call the office by 3:20 p.m. if they want their child to be held at the building until they arrive. Under these circumstances the child must be picked up no later than 3:45 p.m.  


Early Dismissals

Early dismissals are discouraged because of disruption of instructional time.  However, if an early dismissal is absolutely necessary, then a written request must be sent to the teacher on the morning of that dismissal stating the reason and designating the time you will arrive to pick up your child.  The student will be called to the office once you arrive at the office.  If a dismissal is prior to 3:25 p.m., parents should report to the school office, sign the child out, and ask the secretary to call the child to the office


Children are released only to a parent or guardian unless a note has been received from that parent or guardian designating the adult who will be meeting the child.  Identification MUST be produced to ensure everyone’s safety. The person picking up the child must have their name on the child’s emergency list, which will be verified on the Building Secretary’s computer at the time the child is picked up.
