  • Parents are encouraged to use the same plan for pick up every day of the school year. Should there be a change on a particular day, a note or email should be sent to your student’s teacher that morning indicating the dismissal change.
  • Students are expected to leave school each afternoon immediately after being dismissed at 3:15 p.m. 
  • Crossing guards are on duty for a reasonable length of time at designated intersections.
  • If your child is in kindergarten or first grade and will not be using carpool, a teacher must release your child to you in person. 
  • If your child is in second through fourth grade, they will be able to walk or ride their bike home on their own.
