Dismissal Procedures

To avoid serious congestion in the main entrance to the building, we will be dismissing students from different locations within the building as follows:

To avoid se:

  • Prekindergarten, Kindergarten, & First Grade students will be dismissed on the south side of the building by the PE Pavilion gate off 26th Terrace.
  • Second and Third grade students will be dismissed in the main entrance walkway off 25th Avenue.
  • Fourth and Fifth grade students will be dismissed on the south side of the building by the PE Pavilion gate off 26th Terrace.

During dismissal parents will not be allowed in the building.

Students waiting for parents to pick them up will be supervised until 15 minutes after dismissal. At 2:05 p.m. or 3:20 p.m., students who have not been picked up will be escorted to the main entrance and left under the supervision of the school monitor to call their parents from the office.

Rainy Day Pick-Up:
On rainy days parents will be allowed to enter the building to pick up their child from their classroom.   

School monitor and teachers on bus duty will monitor students in bus areas, to assist with the safe dismissal of students. 

Students who are instructed by their parents to walk home at dismissal, must do so immediately upon dismissal.  It is imperative, however, that the office have a written permission from the students’ parents allowing them to walk home. Students cannot wait in any area on school grounds unsupervised.  Students will be escorted to the outside walkways to ensure they walk home immediately after dismissal for their safety.

Parents will be required to send a written note specifying that the student is to walk home. Please discuss safety measures with students walking to and from school to increase safety awareness.

Crossing guards and school security help increase student safety.  Please follow their instructions.
