INCLEMENT WEATHER DAYS

Inclement weather information/procedures are found on our district website.

In the event of a weather related early closing, teachers will follow the "Unscheduled Early Closing Plan" you submitted at the start of the school year, regardless of daily notes brought in. Please be sure you save the plan you submit in a safe place to be referenced when an unexpected early closing occurs. Please discuss the plan with your child.

DROP OFF PROCEDURE

When you are dropping off your children in the morning, please circle around the back and return to the front drop off point, making sure your child exits the car on the passenger side. A duty teacher will be there to assist from 8:35am-8:50am. If your student is arriving tardy after 8:50, please walk him/her to the front office for check in. The children should not be left unsupervised in or out of the building.

The duty teachers will begin at 8:35 A.M. Please do not drop off your children before that time. Attendance is taken at 8:50 a.m. Students must be in their classroom for 8:50 attendance.

DISMISSAL PLAN/PICK UP PROCEDURE

All children being picked up at the end of the school day will be escorted to the hallway adjacent to the Media Center in the modular section of the school. Parents are to come to the exterior door in the back of the building. Please have an ID ready when picking up. You must sign your child out with staff on duty. Dismissal plans should come in to classroom teachers via your child on a note signed by you. “Call in” dismissal plans can create dozens of interruptions into your child’s classroom. Please avoid making changes to your child’s dismissal plan, however if you must change a plan due to an emergency, please do it before 2:00pm. Your child will not be released to any other individual except the person listed on your note, ID will be required. Dismissal time is 3:25 PM.
