Afternoon Dismissal Procedures
The objective is to minimize the opportunity for unfortunate accidents by creating and maintaining a safe and orderly system for dismissal. The safety of our students is our top priority.
Please refer to the Afternoon Dismissal Parking Diagram
Entrance Only: Please enter by the driveway from Delhi Pike by the funeral home. This will be the only open entrance into the parking lot. Please park in:
Section A—Exit right out of Gate #2 onto Robben Ln.
Section B—Exit left out of Gate #1 onto Robben Ln.
Section C—Exit behind school to Pedretti Rd.
Please park starting in Row 1, 2, 3, etc. in Section A, B or C. Please park following the diagram and ignore the painted parking spaces for dismissal, especially in sections A & B.
At 2:55 p.m. the following groups will be dismissed:
Bus Riders: Students must exit the doors facing the Pedretti Rd. side (by the modular unit) and catch their designated bus. Students are dismissed according to order of the arrival of the buses. Students will wait in their homerooms until their bus is called. Misconduct will not be tolerated on the buses. If a student violates the bus regulations, he or she will be reported to the principal. Appropriate action will be taken to maintain order on the school buses to insure the safety of all.
Walkers: Students are expected to walk home immediately after being dismissed.
All students in grades K-3: Parents are encouraged to meet the students by their exit and walk them to their car. We realize some students can walk on their own to their parent’s car.
At 3:00 p.m. car riders in grades 4-8 will be released to find their parents/carpool and get in their cars.
Once all students are safely in their vehicles, staff members will dismiss cars row by row from each section. You may exit left or right onto Robben Ln, depending upon what section you park in, A or B. You may also exit behind the gym/school onto Pedretti Rd. from section C.
At no time will children be allowed to run or walk in the parking lot while vehicles are exiting. We ask that all vehicles park in a forward direction toward the section exit so that no one has to put his or her vehicle in reverse to exit. Once all of the vehicles have exited, school personnel will walk any remaining students back to the porch by the office to wait for their parents. Students who are not picked up by 3:15 p.m. will be sent to the Afterschool Program.
Please try to schedule after school appointments with the new dismissal procedure in mind. If you cannot get an appointment that would allow you the extra few minutes you need to abide by these procedures, please send a note to school and take your child out by 2:30 p.m.
