UPDATE TO NEW DISMISSAL PROCEDURE EFFECTIVE MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26th

Therefore, effective Monday, November 26, 2018 the following changes will take effect:
- All school doors will remain locked during dismissal
- Parents will no longer enter the building during dismissal
- Bus riders will be dismissed as usual
- At 2:25 cars will be allowed to enter single file in the front driveway (PLEASE PULL ALL THE WAY FORWARD)
- Every family will be given two name tags for your vehicle, which will be displayed on your front passenger visor
- School staff will be assisting students entering vehicles on the passenger side only
- Walkers will be dismissed after car riders
- There will be no parking in the back-parking lot after pre-school dismissal
- All Kindergarten students who are car riders will be dismissed with the rest of the car riders at the school from the gym at 2:25.
- All pre-k aftercare students who normally get picked up between 2:00 and 2:30 in the back of the school will now be dismissed with the rest of the car riders from the gym at 2:25.
We understand and appreciate change can be a challenge but please keep in mind this is being done to provide a safe environment for our children and staff.
