We ask that parents/guardians gather at the front of the building near the map. When the 8:45 bell rings, students will be allowed to enter the building. We will have staff members throughout the building to help escort students to class.
All walkers K-5 must report to the front lobby and check in with the adult on duty. At 3:40PM the adult/teacher on duty will walk outside and gather the Walker ID#'s from the parent/guardian. From that list, we will line up students in the lobby and dismiss them in groups once their number has been called. Walker "pick-up" ends at 4:00PM. Only the parent/guardian or an approved adult listed on the child's emergency card are allowed to pick up the child. They must have the following:
- The corresponding walker tag number with the child’s walker tag number.
- Secondly, their name appears on the list of emergency contacts on the student’s locator sheet/emergency card.
If the person responsible for pickup does not have the required walker tag, they will be directed to the front office for our checkout procedure (showing driver’s license/proper identification associated with our locator cards).
We ask that parents not park in the gravel parking lot or Publix and “walk” their children to school; rather, utilize our carpool for dismissal to ensure the safety of our students.
Pick up by older siblings: In order for an older sibling to pick a child up from school, he or she must be older than 14, the corresponding walker tag, and must be listed on your child’s locator card as having permission to pick up your child.
Children who walk or ride bicycles without adult supervision (grades 4 and 5 only): If your child is a responsible 4th or 5th grader and will walk or ride a bicycle to or from school without adult supervision, please complete and return the “Walker Agreement” to school. The section with your signatures will be laminated for attachment to your child’s bookbag. Students without this signature card will not be permitted to travel to or from school without an adult.
