Today your child will bring home the car tag with the QR code taped on it. You will notice that there is not a hang tag on it. This tag is what you will show at the driver's side window to the teacher that they will scan to have your child/children brought out to your car. The new procedure will start right after Thanksgiving Break - just a few days away.
The next step in our safety plan is tightening up our end of the day dismissal procedures. We have already started the process of ringing a bell at 2:45, praying and sharing afternoon announcements. This has been going really well. After the 2:45 bell, preschool students and their siblings will be dismissed to the gym for pick up.
Starting the week after Thanksgiving Break, the rest of the school dismissal will change. Students whose parents pick them up in car line will be dismissed as we identify cars in the line outside. Each family will get a new car tag with a QR code attached. We will scan the QR code as you are parked in line. The scan will send your child's name in to school, where your child's name will appear on the Smartboard in the classroom. When your child or children in your car see their name, they will come to the rotunda where they will be escorted out to your car by a teacher. Following the car line dismissal, we will dismiss walkers, then students attending after school care and then finally any family that needs to pick up in the front of school, we will call for those students to come to the rotunda to meet you.
