Due to the safety concerns of our students, we will no longer allow parents to walk up to pick up their child from the car rider line. Our staff is having difficulty monitoring if the correct person is picking up the correct child. The staff also is struggling to make sure only the students being picked up by parents walking up are leaving the car rider area. Our staff is also monitoring that students are safe in the loading process into their vehicles. Please understand that we have put the safety of our students and your children first in making this decision.
On another note, we cannot accommodate students being signed out past 2:55. Teachers place students in various other classrooms to fulfill their assigned afternoon duties, which increases the difficulty and time needed to locate students. Please only ask for students during this time for an emergency situation.
Thank you for your understanding.

Parents should display car tag in the window of the car. If the car tag isn't in the car, we ask that you park, a teacher will come to you sign your child out and your child will be brought to you. For those with car tags, students will line up at the poles numbered 1-5. We will dismiss students as quickly as possible but the student's safety will always be our first priority.
