Every School. Every Classroom. Every Student. Every Day.

Arrival Procedures

·         Supervision for students begins at 8:30 AM. Students may not enter the building before this time.  If you need childcare before this time, please contact the Extended Day Office.

 ·         Car riders will enter through the side door through the carpool loop.  All walkers and bus riders will enter through the front door. Upon arrival, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students will report to the hallway outside their classroom. Third, fourth, and fifth grade students will report immediately to the cafeteria, where they will eat breakfast, and wait for their teachers to pick them up at 8:55 AM.


Dismissal Procedures

·         Afternoon dismissal begins for students at 3:25 PM, with the dismissal of walkers.  All walkers will proceed to the front of the school where parents will wait for them there.  All parents picking up walkers must have a Venetia hang-tag.  All parents without a tag will be directed to the front office.  At 3:30 PM, carpool and bus students will be dismissed.  Buses will be called one at a time and students will be checked off on a list to take bus attendance.  Students will load buses in an orderly manner, supervised by adults on duty.

·         Car Riders will be dismissed to the cafeteria, where they will be dismissed by adults on duty.  All parents using the carpool line must have a Venetia hang tag.  Please see the below for details regarding the Venetia hang tags.

Please note that any changes to transportation home MUST be made in writing.  We will not accept phone calls for changes in ways that students go home.


As an increased safety measure and an effort to reduce wait time in the student pick-up area, the outlined procedures should be followed:

*  Each family will be provided with a Venetia car hanger during Orientation and/or Open House.

*  Your child’s first and last name as well as grade level should be printed on the car hanger in large block letters with a permanent black marker.

*  The car hanger, with the child’s name, should be placed on the rear view mirror of the vehicle when picking a student up after school.

*  As cars approach the student pick-up area, an assigned adult will alert the student by calling his/her name.  The student will proceed to the designated boarding area to be dismissed.  Please refrain from blowing your horn to get your child’s attention. 

*  The car hangers have been provided to us by local businesses.  Please keep them in a safe place for daily use.  Cars without hangers will have to park & report to the main office to pick-up your child.  Replacement car hangers may be obtained in the main office for $1.  Additionally, you can purchase additional tag(s) for other family members.
