We are having a safety issue with our dismissal procedures. Parents are taking children from the class line making it difficult to monitor who is leaving and to verify if they are leaving with an approved person. We tried new procedures the last couple of days on the west side and this will be our procedure for dismissal. We encourage you to pick up your child through the dismissal line instead of coming into the office every day. But, if you insist on checking your child out each day, here are the procedures for dismissal.
