  • Dismissal Expectations (9/15/2017)

    For unknown reasons, this year’s dismissal has been fraught with safety concerns.  We are asking all parents to reread the section on dismissal on page 15 of the handbook. If another family member or friend is the designated pick-up person, please make sure they read this section, too.  We also ask that no matter what line you are in, please pull up as close to and next to the cars around you so all can fit on the lots. We have 30 more students than last year so that impacts dismissal procedures.

    Other concerns include those who repeatedly park on Manns Ave.  This is not allowed!  We have stated this at Back to School Nights. Please be considerate of the neighbors and put yourself in their position.  If your child is to be dismissed to the Church Lot do not come down to school to escort them unless the child is in preschool.  The teachers will make sure the students cross and arrive at the Church Lot in an orderly and safe manner. When other adults are there the sidewalks become crowded and a very serious incident could occur.  Finally, please adhere to what the teachers tell you.  They know the flow of the traffic and when it is safe to cross, etc.  Modeling respect is such a great teaching moment for your child.

    If all of us can remember the safety of our students is primary and time is not a factor, we will be able to have a smooth and safe dismissal.
