Dismissal Policy

Students are not allowed to be signed out after 2:30.  If you have an appointment that requires students to leave early, please sign them out before 2:30.  

Car riders may be dropped off between 7:15 and 8:00 in front of the gym/auditorium doors and enter through those doors.  Car riders are dismissed approximately 3:05 and are to be picked up in the line in front of the school.  Please stay on the right side, leaving a lane for emergency vehicles if necessary until the posted time.  When near the car rider area, please clearly tell the staff member the student(s) name and pull up. 

Busses:  Policy Update:  Effective August 1st 2014, Parents/Guardians are required to complete a Transportation Request form for their children at their assigned school for all school bus requests.  This change reflects the procedure outlined in the North Carolina State Statute:115C-246.

Please contact Chad Oakes if you have any transportation questions or needs.

Walkers:  Morning walkers are requested to be aware and careful when walking to school.  Afternoon walkers are checked by a staff member and released when it is safe to cross the bus lot.
