Dear Parents / Guardians,

NEW AFTER SCHOOL PICK UP POLICY AND PROCEDURES!!!

Our desire is for the parent pick-up and drop-off to be the safest possible for our children.  For this reason, PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES IN AFTER SCHOOL PICK UP  PROCEDURES:   

*******ALL  Students will be dismissed from  inside the school building*******
They will no longer be sitting in the porch area.

CAR RIDER Line:        car tag pic

Every adult who is picking up a child after the dismissal bell  must  display  the Car Rider Name Card in the Lower Front Windshield on the passenger side.

Please have the name  and grade written large and in dark print!   This will make your pick up experience much more efficient!  A duty teacher will call for your student to be dismissed from inside the building.  If your car does not have the Car Rider Name Card visible, then you will be asked to park in a parking space, go inside to  the office and show your driver’s license.  Your child will then be called to the office to meet you.

PARENT WALK UP Line:

Every adult who walks up to pick  up a child after the dismissal bell  must  bring  the Car Rider Name Card to the South door near the flagpole.  A duty teacher will be at the door to dismiss your student from inside the building.   If you do not have the Car Rider Name Card, you will be asked to enter through the front doors of the building, go to the office and show your driver’s license.  The office will call for your student to meet you in the office.

MORNING DROP OFF PROCEDURES:

Morning Drop Off  Procedures remain the same!!   The church continues to graciously allow us to use their parking lot before and after school.  Please make sure to actually park in a designated space.  We ask parents and children to refrain from cutting across our school parking lot which has become quite dangerous.  Please use the crosswalk to reach the school property.    For those of you who choose to drive your child(ren) to the front door for drop off,  please do not pass other cars and do not drop off students from the middle lanes or fire lane area. Please wait patiently in the car line.    You may begin leaving students at 8:20  which will help with the congestion.  However, please remember  supervision does not begin until 8:20.

FAQs

What happens if I forget to put my Car Rider Name Card in my car?   You will have to park your car in a parking space, go inside to the office and present your driver’s license for verification.

Can I use the car rider name card to check out my student during regular school hours?  NO, you must present your driver’s license during regular school hours.

Can I show my driver’s license to the duty teacher instead of the Car Rider Name Card ?  NO, the duty teacher will only dismiss your child if you have the Car Rider Name Card.  You will need to park in a parking space, go inside to the office,  and show your driver’s license for verification.

Can my friend or a Grandparent pick up my child  from the  car line or walk up  line?   Yes, but they will need to have the Car Rider Name Card with them to pick up your child.  If they do not have the card, they will go to the office and present their driver’s license.  If their name is listed on your child’s Emergency Contact Card,  they will be allowed to leave with your child.

Can my child go home with a friend’s parent?  If the friend’s parent has your child’s Car Rider Name Card then your child will be dismissed with them.  If they do not have the name card, they must go to the office and present their driver’s license for verification.  If their name is on your child’s emergency contact card then your child will be allowed to leave with them.

If you have additional questions feel free to call 340-2995, the school office.

Sincerely,
