MaST II Tacony Parking Placard Gr. 3-8

MaST II Tacony Parents/Guardians,

Within the next few days, students in grades 3-8 will be sent home with three new parent pickup placards that parents/guardians must hold up during parent pickup. All three placards are identical, and parents/guardians should distribute as they see fit to anybody who is authorized to pick up their student(s). These placards replace the old placards previously issued. Old placards should be discarded.

In the near future, we will be piloting a new system we hope will improve dismissal speed. Each student is assigned a number, and that number is displayed on the new placards being issued. If parents/guardians have siblings in the school or are picking up multiple students, the parent/guardian should hold up each individual student’s placard for our staff members to see upon entering the parking lot. There is nothing parents/guardians need to do differently - they simply need to distribute these new placards to anyone that is authorized to pick up and display it for staff upon arriving for parent pickup. If you lose your placard or need a reprint, please contact your student’s homeroom teacher and the teacher will coordinate a new one being printed. Once again, this only applies to grades 3-8 and does not apply to high school.

Please begin using the new placard the next day after the placards are sent home (which, again, will be within the next few days)

Thank you,

MaST II Tacony Administration
