Arrival & Dismissal

Breakfast

Breakfast is provided free of charge from 8:00 am to 8:15 am in the cafeteria for all students in Kindergarten to 5th Grade. Pre-K students are provided with breakfast in the classroom at 8:20am.

Dismissal

Please remember, students will only be dismissed to their parents/guardians or to another adult at least 18 years of age who MUST be listed on the blue card and MUST have a valid ID present. It is important to regularly update your child's blue card in order for the school to reach you in the event of an emergency.

In addition, it is extremely important that the person picking up the child know the name and class of the child to ensure a smooth dismissal.

After School Program - Students who attend an after school program including CFL and Salvation Army will be dismissed to their program before their class dismisses outside.

If you do not want your child to attend their after school program on a specific day, you must notify their teacher beforehand. The teacher will then dismiss your child via normal dismissal procedures. If you do not pick up your child on time, your child will be dismissed to their after school program.

 

IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY ONLY

If an individual is not listed as an emergency contact, a parent/guardian must fax or email the school. We will not accept request over the phone, however you may contact the school to obtain the fax number or an email address to send the email to.

The letter or email MUST include the following:

  • the date of the pickup
  • the name of the student
