Rainy Day Dismissal Plan
In times of inclement weather, the Rainy Day Dismissal Plan will be implemented. The process will remain the same for parents. The changes that will occur will be internal. Students will wait in supervised, assigned areas of the building and staff will be posted in specific locations.
We ask parents of students who walk home with a guardian to pick up their children at the entrance facing Cooper Street with easy access to the crosswalk.
Parents must remain in their vehicles. For the safety of our students, we ask parents to avoid blocking the front entry way and coming into the building as doors are opened by students who are exiting. Additionally, we ask parents to avoid calling students on cell phones and asking them to wait outside. Most of the adult supervision is positioned inside of the building. The process will be completed quickly, if we all cooperate and follow the aforementioned guidelines.
We are continually revisiting our systems for improvement.
The Rainy Day Dismissal Plan was implemented January 13, 2017 and the last car cleared at 3:58PM. Thank you for helping us to assure that all of our students have a safe and orderly dismissal.
