Given the amount of snow on our campus and on the roads around us, Drs. Miller, Roberts, and I are concerned with student safety during dismissal. Therefore, students who ride the bus or who are picked up by parent or carpool will be dismissed first. Five minutes after dismissing those students, we will dismiss students who walk. Hopefully, this will create more space, alleviate congestion, and mitigate any possible safety issues.
The dismissal schedule for today and tomorrow, then, will be as follows:
3:10pm—One of the principals will dismiss by an announcement students who ride the bus or who are picked up by a parent or carpool.
3:15pm—The bell will dismiss the remaining students, those who are walking home.
Please share this with your students. I will let parents know as well.
