Arrivals:

Students are allowed to enter the building at 7:55 AM each morning for breakfast. Supervision for all children begins at 7:55 AM.

Dismissal:

The dismissal bell rings at 3:35 PM each day. Teachers walk out with their students. Walkers are encouraged to exit school grounds immediately. Riders wait with their teacher until their ride arrives. Various day care providers pick children up from Rankin. We ask that you make prior arrangements for after school transportation.

The final minutes of class are tedious as teachers try to sign folders/planners and make final preparation to end they day. Because of this, we ask that parents not visit classrooms, nor call for children to be dismissed after 3:00 PM.

As part of the Texas Education Code (Sec. 37.0012), all schools in Texas shall designate a Campus Behavior Coordinator whose primary responsibility is to maintain student discipline for the campus and be a contact for parents or guardians concerning individual student disciplinary actions by the school. The person designated may be the principal of the campus or any other campus administrator selected by the principal.
