Prepare for Rainy Day Dismissal

Please prepare for the probability of rainy day dismissal for students.

Kindergarten families will walk directly to the classroom if it is raining during dismissal time.

Students in grades 1-5 need to know if their parents will drive up or walk to the classroom for pick up.

  • We will open gates at 3:00pm for parents to walk onto campus and pick their child up directly from the classroom. Parents need to be prepared to give student name and teacher name to enter our campus.
  • Drive up parents need to be prepared with their child's name, grade and teacher on a piece of paper. This expedites our pick process. Students being picked up at drive up will wait in the cafeteria.
  • Any and all help with rainy day dismissal is SO appreciated.
