Transportation Changes and Early Pick-up Policy
We kindly request that all parents and guardians of our elementary school students carefully review and adhere to the following transportation guidelines and policies. These measures are implemented to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, maintain a focused learning environment, and promote efficient school operations.
Transportation Changes Cut-Off Time:
To minimize disruptions during the school day, transportation changes for students should be communicated to the school no later than 1:00 PM. After this time, we kindly request that transportation arrangements remain unchanged for the day. This policy allows us to maintain order and minimize confusion, ensuring a smooth dismissal process.
Early Pick-up for Doctor Appointments:
If your child has a scheduled doctor appointment, we strongly encourage you to plan ahead and arrange for their early pick-up before 1:00 PM. This gives sufficient time for your child to be ready for dismissal and ensures that they do not miss valuable instructional time. The front office will not hold students after this time to maintain safety and allow students to focus on their studies.
Remaining in Classrooms:
In the event of an early pick-up or transportation change, students will remain in their classrooms until a parent or authorized guardian arrives. This procedure is in place to ensure the safety of all students and minimize disruptions during instructional time. Our dedicated staff will ensure that your child is ready for dismissal upon your arrival.
Car Rider Dismissal Time:
For students who are designated as car riders, it is essential that they are picked up no later than 2:30 PM. This allows us to maintain an orderly dismissal process and ensures the safety of all students. We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to this dismissal time.
Students may not change their transportation status from “car rider” to “walker” in order to bypass the car rider line and be picked up by a car. All requests for changes from car rider to walker status must be approved by the school administration.
We understand that there may be situations where a change in transportation is necessary, but it is important to follow the proper procedures to ensure the safety and well-being of all students. Any requests to change a student’s transportation status should be submitted in writing to the school office and approved by administration.
The administration will review each request on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration various factors such as the student’s age, safety concerns, and the overall impact on the school’s operations. Please note that requests for transportation changes will only be approved in exceptional circumstances.
We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to this policy, as it helps us maintain an orderly and safe dismissal process for all students. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please feel free to reach out to the school administration.
