Our afternoon dismissal time is 3:50. Teachers begin the packing up and moving into the pod process about 3:40. Calling a student out of class to come to the office at that time becomes very difficult.
We are always happy to get your child for you if you are checking him out. However, to make sure he gets where he is supposed to go in the movement of dismissal, if you arrive after 3:40 to check your child out, we will ask you to wait until 3:50 to get him. If your child is a …
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make our dismissal process as smooth and fast as possible.
At the beginning of the year or when a student is enrolled, parents will be asked to specify how their child is to get home each day. That is the method that will be used for the remainder of the year unless changed in writing by the parent.
Two areas that affect our parents are our procedures for our car riders and our walkers and bike riders. We are strongly encouraging all our parents to watch the car rider video or read the information about Walker / Bike Rider Procedures.

Walker / Bike Rider Procedure
Please do not stop your car on Wendtood Drive and let your student out. This gate is for students who bike or walk to school. The car rider line at the front of the school is the place to pull up and drop your student off at the curb. If you do not wish to drive your car around to the front, you may park in the soccer field parking lot. However; you will need to get out with your student and walk him/her across the bus drive. Please help us to ensure your student's safety by abiding to these two requests.
Rainy Day Dismissal for Bikers / Walkers:
All parents of walker / bike riders will be given a preference form as to what they want their walkers/ riders to do on a heavy rain day. Teachers will be given that information. On a rainy day, we will make a decision by 3:15 at the latest using radar. Parents will be notified using the School Messenger system and will receive both a voice mail and an email as long as their information is current. School staff will then move walkers / riders into bus or car rider lines based on parent choice.
Dismissal procedures will not change for car, bus, and day care riders. However, please expect longer wait times in the car rider line and a delay in the arrival of buses due to more students in both of those groups.
