Early Dismissals
We understand that early dismissals are necessary at times. While we would prefer that appointments are made on school holidays and professional development days,we recognize that’s not always possible. Please arrange for an early dismissal an
hour before your student’s dismissal time.


Additionally, please note that the end-of-day is always a hectic time. To ensure that our students are not confused about where to go after school please make all emergency changes to the Dismissal Form before 3 pm. After 3 pm students will be sent home through the original method.

All School Arrival and Dismissal Procedures:
For expediency purposes:

  • Adults must stay with their vehicle. A school employee or volunteer will come and assist your student with entering and exiting the vehicle. Do NOT exit your vehicle.

  • Please be sure that car seats and booster seats are placed on the passenger side of the vehicle. Every family will be assigned a car tag. Please ensure that your pick-up placard is displayed prominently on the passenger side in the front window. 

  • Please be sure that anything that needs to exit the car with the child is in the car with the child (and not in the trunk).

  • Please pull forward immediately.

  • Please do NOT attempt to go around the car in front of you.

  • If the line is too long or you are in a hurry please park in a legal parking space (not in the bus drop-off zone on 34th st.) and walk your child to the front door.

Please Note - We are mandated reporters:

  • We are unable to load a child into any vehicle that does not have an age-appropriate car seat and we are mandated as reporters to file a report for children who do not have the appropriate car seat.

  • If we smell illegal substances emanating from your vehicle we will have to make a DFCS report
