Dismissal at JHCS


  • Your students must be picked up between 3:00- 3:15 each day
  • You must have a “Car Tag” displayed in your car’s front passenger side window in order to pick up your child. You can pick up your numbers from the front office.

  • A staff member will be present at the gate to ensure the safety of all students. Please treat them with respect and adhere to their requests.
  • John Hancock Charter School will not release a child to anyone other than a parent/guardian without consent. Please fill out and return a release authorization form, and include names of car pool drivers.
  • If you need to conduct business in the office, please do this prior to 2:45 p.m. or after 3:15 p.m. Your cooperation in this matter will greatly alleviate congestion in the area and outside concerns about traffic flow.
  • Do not check your child out of school the last 15 minutes of the day. If you have to check your child out early, please ensure it is before 2:45 M-Th and 1:45 on Fridays.
  • DO NOT make any U-turns at any time during the carpool process.

  • Pull forward and leave the carpool lane if your child must return to the building. Staying in the lane will delay carpool and creates a safety hazard for the other cars and students.

  • If you have any questions regarding car pool, please contact Mrs. Adamic or any staff member.
