I want to thank you for using our "loop" for car pick up at dismissal. We are still having a few cars using the daycare lines, but everyone I've spoken to has been kind and gracious when reminded about our dismissal plan. The daycare providers are very thankful for your help because they are on a tight schedule picking up kids from all three elementary schools. Please continue to follow our dismissal routines (posted below). Thank you for your continued patience and support! We truly appreciate it!

Picking Up Kids Early...

Please remember that when picking up your child early from school, we will need to see your current (valid) photo ID. This is just one of our procedures to ensure the safety of children at Elmwood Elementary. Thank you so much for your support!
