New Student Pick Up Procedure, November 27
Recently, we have had an increase in parents walking up to the school during dismissal and waiting for their student(s) to be dismissed. This has made the student pick up process more challenging for the staff. More importantly, the increase in students walking through and around vehicle traffic has resulted in a few “close calls” concerning student safety.
With student safety being our primary concern, we have decided to make a minor modification to our end-of-day student pick up procedures: Beginning November 27th, we are requesting all parents stay in their vehicle and enter the student vehicle pick up line versus walking up to the school and picking up your student(s).
Thank you for your help in keeping our Rockets safe!
