If there is a 3-1/2 hour early dismissal, what time is dismissal?
School normally begins dismissal at 3:30 p.m.  School dismissal would begin at 12 noon on a 3-1/2 hour early dismissal day.

I’ve never dropped or pick-up’d my child(ren) as a car rider.  Is there anything special I need to know?
*Under no circumstances will students be dismissed to parents who walk to the car rider line to get their children. If you want to pick your
child up and walk them to your parked car, you must pick them up at the walker door (the first door near the office).  These students are dismissed at
approximately 3:40 p.m.

*Please do not send siblings across car rider traffic to pick up students.  Although we have a staff member on duty at the crosswalk, we do not
have supervision in the parking lot, and are concerned about children walking across the busy parking lot without adult supervision.

*Unless there are handicapped tags on your vehicle, the handicap parking spaces must be left open.   Even if you are quickly running to meet your child,
cars without handicapped tags are not permitted to be parked in the handicapped spots.

The speed limit in the car rider line is 5 m.p.h.  Do not use cell phones while in the car rider line.  Also, please no passing the car in front of you!  We take great pride in ensuring the safety of all students.  Please keep the line flowing as one straight line.
