New Car Rider Procedure

Due to the volume of parents picking up and the safety of students each day, it is necessary to revise our afternoon dismissal procedures.We need everyone’s cooperation to ensure a safe and secure arrival and dismissal. 

ALL Car Riders will be released from their classroom to the amphitheater at 3:30 PM to wait for their number to be called. In order to provide a safe and secure student pickup procedure, all car riders MUST have a car rider tag visible hanging from the rear view mirror. All vehicles MUST come through the car rider line. 

Students will no longer be released at the gate to walk with a parent.  Gates will remain locked at dismissal. 

Parents are to remain in their car.  Do not park unless you do not have a tag and you are going to the office with your ID.  The cross walk area will be closed and parents may not walk to the sidewalk to collect their child.
