New Security Measure for Car Riders

Big image

When we return from Christmas break we will begin using new pick up tags. Parent Pickup Tags hang from the rear view mirror or the passenger visor of the vehicle to easily identify authorized vehicles that can pick up children at school. The parent id tags help keep school dismissal safe and organized and will help speed up the process of getting children loaded and unloaded. We will pass three hang tags out to each family to be distributed to anyone who is permitted to pick up your child. In the event that a child is picked up and the car does not have a tag, we will call the office to confirm that student is permitted to go home with that person.
