Car Loop Reminders - PM Pickup
Please note the following pick up procedures at Manatee School For the Arts. All students who are being picked up by parents after school are to line up in the front dismissal area at the end of the school day. The pick up area will be opened approximately 30 minutes before dismissal each day. Cars line up in the front area as noted in the diagram below. An MSA staff member will dismiss each line of cars in the order that they arrived.
Students are picked up on the North side (by the tent) of the loop with the cars in single file. The pickup procedure usually takes 30 minutes or less.
Please be patient as we safely dismiss all students and get them to their cars in a safe manner.
If you have any questions, please contact us.

PM Parent Pickup Reminders
Also, an important note about pick-up. Any student who is being picked up at dismissal must be picked up in our parent pick-up loop. Asking your child to walk off campus to get picked up causes problems for the community and the private businesses that are in the neighborhood. We have a great relationship with all of our neighbors in the community, and we want to keep it this way. All parents are expected to follow the school procedure for student pick up by waiting patiently in the parent pickup loop after school.
Another important note - students being picked up after an after school activity should be picked up at the school. Please do not ask your children to meet you off campus. This is a safety concern for your child.
Thank you for your attention to these important matters.
