The school day ends promptly at 2:00 p.m.
Students can only legally be released to persons listed on the blue card unless other notification has been received in writing. Verbal consent cannot be honored. All changes in dismissal information, such as a playdate or change in pick-up person on a particular day, must be provided, in writing, prior to the start of the school day.
Pre-K: Students will be dismissed to a parent/guardian from the same location at 2:00pm. We ask that parents/guardians are waiting at that time and quickly leave the perimeter of the school. If you authorize an older sibling/minor to pick up the student it must be in writing and on your child’s google forms submitted.
Grades K–3: Students will be dismissed to a parent/guardian from their same arrival line in the school yard. The river gates will open at 1:50pm for parents/guardians to begin entering. All families must exit at the Main Street gate. If you would like your child to be picked up by an older sibling/minor it must be put in writing to the school and the sibling listed on the family homework you submitted online. If you give permission for your K to 3 child to leave school alone, it must be written in a letter to the school and also included in the online family homework you submitted. We ask all families to quickly disperse and not linger around the perimeter of school building.
Grade 4–5: Students will be dismissed from the same side door (Door 5) closest to 625 Main Street. Students will be dismissed on their own. If you do not want your child to be dismissed on their own you must include this when you complete your family homework form. Any student picking up a sibling must do so alone, not with friends.
Grade 6–8: Students will be dismissed from the main doors at 2:00pm and should quickly leave the perimeter of the school. Any student picking up a sibling must do so alone, not with friends.
Students/parents/guardians are not permitted to return to the classroom after dismissal for any forgotten items due to safety protocols.
NOTE: For safety and security as well as confidentiality, teachers are unable to provide reports on individual students or conference with you at dismissal.
