Updated After School Dismissal Procedures

  Parents: Due to safety and security issues of our After School Program students, there will be an immediate change in dismissal procedures starting Wednesday, November 15, 2017.  All students who ride the Activity bus on Tuesday and Thursdays will be the only ones exiting the “3rd Grade Door” next to the flag pool.  ALL OTHER STUDENTS including walkers and car riders will exit the door on Hillcrest Drive.  Parents should pull all the way up on our car pickup lane and wait for your child to exit.  You may also park in the neighborhood and walk to the Hillcrest door and wait for your child for pick up.  There will be NO STUDENTS exiting the front door.  There will be NO parents parking in the bus lane!  There will be NO parents parking in the staff parking lot except those with a HANDICAP STICKER.  We have seen children dart across the parking lot at the urging of an adult just missing getting hit by a backing out car.  Our bus was five minutes late leaving because two cars were parked in front of the bus without any driver in it.  We saw parents stop on Rosemary Circle and urging their child to run into the street and jump into the car with cars beeping behind them.  We cannot take any more chances with our children’s safety.  Please remember, it could be your child that gets hit!  Drive safe every day!                                                 Jody L.
