Arrival & Dismissal Procedure
Please drop your child off in the loop in front of South School. Buses drop our students off at our walkway in the RDMS loop. South School’s parking lot is very congested in the morning. Please do not park or idle in the circle and be very mindful of your speed while in our parking lot.
NO CHILD SHOULD EVER BE LEFT IN THE LOOP or PARKING LOT AND BE EXPECTED TO WALK THEMSELVES IN TO SCHOOL. If you arrive after 8:30 a.m., which is the start of school, please park your car and walk your child into the office.
Car Rider/Walker students are dismissed first and exit to the loop in front of South School. You may pick up your child outside at the loop. Several staff members will be present to monitor students. Please do not send someone in your place to pick up your child unless you’ve notified of us in writing that day. In this case photo ID will be required. Bus students are called one bus at a time and also exit through the front door. They are lead to their bus by a staff member.
Also, please note that changes to your child’s regular dismissal procedure should take place for EMERGENCY purposes ONLY and will only be changed with written notification!
If you wish to have your children dismissed early from school you must sign them out at the office. When coming to school to get your child, please stop at the office and your child will be paged. Going to classrooms is often distracting (even at the end of the day) when teachers are giving assignments or checking on after- school plans.
If someone other than a parent or legal guardian is to pick a child up, the office must be notified of in writing. Phone calls are not accepted. Dismissals should be kept to a minimum so the student does not lose instructional time.
In the case of custody/visitation issues the principal will honor the most recent legal papers and contact the authorities for assistance if necessary.
Students need to bring a note from home regarding any change in after school activities or transportation.
Also, changes to your child’s regular dismissal procedure should take place for EMERGENCY purposes ONLY!
