Reminder: Student Dismissal

If your child is a car rider, please review the following dismissal pick-up procedures:

  • All parents enter the parking lot between Eisenhower and Catena (green arrows.)
  • For those picking up a sixth grade student, follow the signs directing you through the center of the lot, around the turn to the right, pulling up along the sixth grade side of the building (yellow arrows.)
  • For those picking up a 7th or 8th grade student, once in the lot you will turn left and follow the signs around the lot proceeding to the back of the building, lining up along the cafeteria side of the building. Once buses have left, you will be directed to drive to the front of the building to pick up your child (pink arrows.)
  • If you have students in 6th and 7th or 8th, please decide as a family where your pick up location will be.
Please take the time to review the map below and follow the arrows that correspond to your child's grade level. Our ability to efficiently and safely execute dismissal depends on parents following the grade level appropriate traffic pattern.

Attendance UPDATE!

  1. To report your child absent if he/ she is neither well enough to come to school nor attend school virtually.
  2. If your child is not feeling well, and he/she is scheduled to attend school in person, please keep your child home. He/she may still access school virtually and be marked present for the school day. However, you must call the attendance line to let us know.
In either case, please leave a message with your child's name, grade, specific reason for absence, duration of absence (if known), and your relationship to the student.
