All other parents please wait in the loop until the dismissal bell rings. Once the dismissal bell rings at 2:05 (1:05 on Early Release Days),students in grade 1-5 are dismissed. At that time there is only one lane of traffic along
Parents should remain in their cars so that we can keep the traffic flowing.
Once you pick up your child, carefully pull into the left lane to exit. All children should be picked up by 2:20.
In order to expedite the flow of traffic, your child will be bringing home a color coded sign with their name and grade on it. Please display the sign on your dash as you go through parent pick up. The teachers on duty will be able to identify your child and have him/her ready for you as you pull forward.

with a written note from the parent stating a legitimate reason for the tardy
