Welcome Back to Bally!
Published: August 11, 2019
Welcome back, everyone! We're very excited for Wednesday's start to our second year. We're going to try to cram as much info as we think you'll need for the first week into this newsletter. If we forget ANYTHING...reach out. We're always an email or call away.
Bus Routing Information
Tardy Bell: 7:35am (students must be in their 1st period classroom)
Buses, Walkers, Bike Riders dismiss: 2:35pm
Car Riders dismiss: 2:40pm (could run a little later the first day)
Morning Parent Dropoff
You may drop off kids beginning at 7:00am daily.
1. Pull into the FIRST entrance as you approach Ballyshannon.
2. Drive along the curb (avoiding the special needs bus loop on the right side of our building).
3. Pull to the crosswalk in front of the building. You will see Officer Jump indicating where you should stop.
4. Students in cars lining the sidewalk should exit their car and walk to the front door.
5. DO NOT BLOCK THE SPECIAL NEEDS BUS LOOP.
Afternoon Parent Pickup
1. The first car should enter the first entrance to Ballyshannon when you approach the school.
2. Pull along the curb, pass the cross walk, and drive all the way to the top of the lot.
3. All cars follow same pattern.
4. Do not block the cross walk or the special needs bus loop.
5. When students are dismissed, they will exit to cars. Students may use their phones after they exit the building so if you'd like to text them to tell them where you are parked, they will get your message when they walk out of the doors.
6. Cars will be dismissed once all cars along the line are loaded.
**Please note, if you are the first car in the line and your child is loaded but all of the other cars are not ready to leave campus, you will wait until everyone is loaded before we dismiss cars. Officer Jump will dismiss the car riders.
