Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Van Allen Families,

Despite the time sacrificed and the patience required, for the safety of all, we encourage EVERYONE to use the car line (this does not include pre-school parents whose arrival and dismissal procedures are different). The following links contain descriptions for both our arrival and dismissal procedures. Please take a moment to read the documents to help ensure our students safety as they arrive and leave each day.
