Parents/guardians who must check their elementary student out of school before the end of the school day are required to sign the student out at the school office. The need for strict security for children requires that parents/guardians not remove the child from school before regular dismissal time without notifying the office. Please park in the lot just west of the elementary school to enter the building to check students out. The elementary school car line will begin at approximately 3:10 p.m. each school day. The duration of the car line is typically no longer than 10 minutes. For student safety, when the car line begins, students will not be allowed to walk across the street until all cars are through the line. Use of the car line is highly encouraged for car riders. When the car line is complete, students who walk home and students whose parents have walked up to the school to pick them up will be released. The buses will pick elementary students up at approximately 3:35 p.m. to take them home. After school, students will be allowed to go only to those locations authorized by their parent/guardian unless the parent/guardian sends a note to school or calls the office specifying otherwise. Any calls to the school regarding after-school instructions for students must be made before 2:00 p.m.
