Dismissal Procedures

Students not going to the Mountain Lion Club shall meet parents outside the school building. Parents are strongly encouraged to establish clear pick up routines and locations. All changes to this routine should be communicated prior to arrival and should not become the responsibility of the office staff.

There is NO supervision on playgrounds after school. Please ask your children to come directly home after school. Parents, please stay with your children if they are on the playground after dismissal.  For your child’s safety, he/she must be in one of our SAFE ZONES if they are not with you or not in bus line.

Safe zones, school crosswalks, and access points (car pick up area and bus lane) are supervised starting at 3:43 p.m.
