All students must exit and enter their vehicles on the sidewalk side of the car line. Cars must be placed in park while students exit and enter the vehicles. School staff will supervise and assist with car line protocol.


Release of Students to Appropriate Parties:

Students will only be released to individuals that are identified as the guardians or emergency contacts in

PowerSchool. If someone else is checking out your child, we must receive this information from you in writing. IDs are required for anyone to check out a student. As a safety precaution, this cannot be done over the phone.

For security reasons, please keep dismissal as consistent as possible.
