Please click the attachment below to meet our two school counselors and learn about the services they provide to Mote staff and students.


Dismissal is a busy time for staff and students. Our only priority is making sure students make it home safely. Here is how you can help:

  • All changes to your child's dismissal should be communicated in writing. Phone calls are only for last minute emergency changes and should be made by 3:15 pm.
  • When possible, allow for your child to enter and exit on the rear passenger side. If not possible, your child is asked to cross in front of your car, not the rear.
  • Parents should remain in their car during car line. Mote staff is not permitted to buckle your child in. If your child needs assistance, move to the past the crosswalk in car line and you may get out at that point to buckle in your child.
  • Dismissal is not a time for parent conferences with staff. We are happy to work with you on a method of weekly or daily communication.

Thank you for helping us to keep dismissal running smoothly.
