Arrival and Dismissal

Thank you for your diligence in following our arrival and dismissal procedures. We are getting better every day, as we work together to ensure safe practices for arrival and dismissal. A few things that would help the process run even smoother are found below:

  • Parents picking up students from kindergarten will need to remain on the grass outside of the doors. When parents and families are on the sidewalk we cannot exit students out of the doors. Please remain in the grassy area for pick-up.
  • Do not leave cars parked and unattended in the "U" area. This is problematic and causes problems for dismissal. Remain in your car and we will call for your students.
  • Trust the process and follow the staff members' guidance in the "U" area pick-up. If a staff member is asking you to pull up or motioning for you to pull, simply do so. They can see the whole process and are aware of the traffic in front of you and behind you. We are all doing our best to get you in and out of arrival/dismissal as quickly and safely as possible.

Important Information for Wildcat Families

Activity Passes

Do you want an activity pass for your student to attend CUSD #205 home activities and athletic events free of charge? If so, you will need to request an activity pass. Please contact the school office at 309-973-2015 to request an activity pass. Once passes are provided to the school, the office will distribute passes to those who have requested them.
