Dismissal

Dismissal Times

School dismisses at 3:20pm Monday through Friday. Parents who are picking up their students at the end of the school day are expected to pick their students at 3:20pm.  There is no supervision for students after (or before) school hours.

Dismissal Changes

Parents are strongly encouraged to plan for dismissal changes ahead of time.  When there are changes to a student’s dismissal procedure, the school must notify several staff members (classroom teacher, bus driver, and two office staff) to make for a safe transition.  Please plan accordingly and let the school know by using our Online Dismissal Change Form, 24 hours in advance of any changes to your child’s dismissal procedures (including pick up by another adult).

In order to preserve time for end of day instructions, and for the safety of the students, dismissals during the last 15 minutes of the school day are limited to emergencies only.  

Going Home With a Friend

In the interest of students, we ask parents to arrange after school visits after your child arrives home from school.  Students are not permitted to use office phones to make after school arrangements.  A student requesting to go home with a friend after school must present written permission from his or her parent, and the friend’s parent must also give written permission. Parents may use the Dismissal Change Form, or send in a written note to the office that morning and a bus pass will be issued if necessary.
