    Dismissal Begins at 3:20 p.m.
    Due to Covid-19 and the CDC guidelines in order to avoid the gatherings of large groups of people,
    we will no longer have Parkers as a dismissal option. These students are encouraged to be a
    walker/bike rider/ or car rider.

    Bike Rider/Walker Dismissal Regular Weather Day:
    Bike Riders and Walkers will have a staggered dismissal through the eastside gate. Bikers will be
    dismissed first in order to retrieve their bikes and head home, out of the way of walkers. Walkers
    will be dismissed second to socially distance from the bike riders.
    *If the student is supposed to meet an adult off campus and the adult is not present, please train
    your student to return to the safety of campus to contact parents or guardians.

    Bike Rider/Walker Dismissal Inclement Weather Day:
    We encourage these students to be dismissed as car riders. However, if there is no other way of
    dismissal transportation we will allow those students to travel home as a bike rider or walker when
    it is safe to do so.
    *If the student is supposed to meet an adult off campus and the adult is not present, please train
    your student to return to the safety of campus to contact parents or guardians.
