5. School Dismissal Manager - On Monday, Sept. 24th you will receive an email from School Dismissal Manager with instructions for setting up your account and learning about this new program.

What We Need From You Next Week:
To ensure each child's safety after school, we need your help. As soon as possible next week, it is imperative that you log in to School Dismissal Manager and set your child's default dismissal arrangement. Remember, this is what your child will do most days after school. By setting the default, this allows us to know that you have made the necessary arrangement for your child. You will notice that each students arrangement is currently set for the arrangement that we had on file from August.You will need to change this to your child's correct default if it's not accurate. PLEASE COMPLETE THIS STEP BEFORE OCTOBER 1ST.
