REMINDERS: Arrival and Dismissal

Arrival Reminders:

  • MLE Car Loop-To ensure safety for our Huskies, please DO NOT let your child exit your car until 8:10 am (T-F), 9:45 am (M), AND pull all the way forward to Mr. Baker before letting your child out of the car.
  • Front Bus Loop by Reader Board- This is a bus loop, A&A transportation loop, and drop off for our DLC families. This is not a place to park and drop off your Husky. Please use our car loops to drop off. If you arrive late, after 8:25 am, you may use this loop to park and walk your child to the front door to sign them in.

Dismissal Reminders:

Please DO NOT arrive before 2:40 pm!

  • Our SMS loop is for our middle school students who have dismissal from 2:25-2:40 pm. We will not be able to use this loop for our dismissal if we don't help them with their traffic flow at their dismissal.
  • We have some staff who have gotten stuck in our back MLE loop trying to pull out.

Thank you for helping us ensure our arrival and dismissal is smooth and safe! We appreciate your help!
