Arrival and Dismissal Procedures for Seabreeze Elementary
Students may arrive after 8:00 A.M., unless they are enrolled in the Extended Day program. Class instruction begins promptly at 8:30 A.M. Any visitor that enters school property must check into the front office, sign in, and obtain a visitor’s pass.
For the first day of school, parents may escort their children directly to their classrooms. For the remainder of the first week, parents may accompany children to designated drop-off zones. After the first week of school, we ask that parents drop off children at the main entrance. Any entrance after the first week of school requires a background clearance, visitor’s sticker, and front office sign-in.
Please select ONE mode of transportation (walker, car rider, bus, Extended Day) for how your child will get home for the year. We will be housing all dismissal zones indoors, and taking attendance each day. Any change in transportation must be made in writing. We are unable to accept changes over the phone, unless in case of emergency and approved by administration. Please have any changes submitted to the Front Office by 12:00 (noon). We are unable to accommodate daily changes in transportation, but will do our best to assist families in getting their child home safely and securely.
As always, we encourage and support your participation and involvement at Seabreeze. Moving forward into the year, we ask for your help in remaining diligent about safety procedures. Please make sure you sign in and remain visibly identified during your volunteering and visits to our school! For additional information, please see DCPS Board Policy 3.40 “Safe and Secure Schools” and 9.60 “Visitors.” You may also reach out to Principal Kimball personally during your next visit, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (247-5900 ext. 105).
