Are you picking up your child who normally rides a bus in the afternoon? Is your child walking or riding a bus home with a friend?

If your child normally rides a bus and you are picking him/her up in the afternoon, please stop in the office to sign your child out. In the event of a bus/transportation problem, we need to account for every student. Also, it is helpful if you send a note to the classroom teacher. If you are picking up your child at dismissal time, please try to arrive by 2:45 PM so we can get your child before calling buses at 2:50 PM.  Parking for pick up between 2:30 and 3:05 PM is available in the parking lot on the School Dr. side of our building, or along the street.  You are not permitted to pull out from the visitor parking area in front of our building while the buses are in the bus loop. If you park there, you will need to wait until after the buses leave to pull out.  All students need to be picked up by 3:00 PM at the latest. If your child is walking or riding a bus home with a friend, please send a note to the teacher/office. This is for the safety of your child. In the event of changes that occur during the day, you can fax or email a note to the office. The office fax number is 235-4588. You can send an email to Mary at mew26@scasd.org or Mollie at mxc12@scasd.org. Thank you!
