Car Rider Dismissal/Arrival & Contactless Check Out/In

Beginning on Monday, August 23rd,

PK students and siblings:

  1. All siblings of PK students will be dismissed to the front of the building to dismiss with their PK siblings. This will allow our parents of PK students to pick up in one location.
  2. PK does not begin until 8:00 a.m., but kindergarten through 5th graders must be in the building by 7:45 .m. PK parents can drop off K-5th grade students at the front entrance. Then, please park in a parking space while waiting for PK drop-off.

Car Rider Dismissal:

  1. All parents or guardians must display the new car tags when they enter the school driveway. Please put them on your rear view mirror so the staff person sending the staff supervising the car riders can see them easily.
  2. Starting this week, we will only be using the new car tags like one in the picture below. ANYONE WHO COMES TO PICK UP A STUDENT WITHOUT THE NEW CAR TAG MUST GO TO THE FRONT OFFICE. A SCHOOL EMPLOYEE CAN CHECK YOUR ID AND PRINT A NEW TAG FOR YOU. All available staff will be working the dismissal line, so they may not be available right away to go get a new tag for you. This will delay the time it takes for you to pick up your child, so please remember your tags.
