Pick-Up List Your child will only be released with those you have listed on your child’s verification form. It is a two-sided document and the top paper of your child’s packet. If you need someone to pick up your child that is not on the list, please call the office. You may be asked for a photo ID.
NO CARS IN LINE BEFORE BUSES. Buses will arrive by 2:35 each day. Cars may line up only AFTER buses or park in parking spots. Bus 12 0 Bus 11 Bus 10Bus 6 Bus 4Bus 7 Bus 5Bus 2 Bus 3 Bus 9 Bus 1 East Parking Lot West Parking Lot Hannah Cole Primary
Parent Pick-Up Procedures Two ways to utilize parent pick-up: Car Pick-Up Face to Face Pick-Up
Car Pick-Up Pick-up is at 2:55 AFTER all buses have left Stay in your car Pull your car all the way around the parking lot via the following:
West Side-2 nd Graders & Preschool (Behind buses)
East Side-Kindergarten & 1 st Grade (Behind buses)
Car Pick-Up Lanes will continue to move forward and load students. The moving line needs to keep moving. You may need to park if your student is not ready. Stay in a single line. If your child has a sibling in 2 nd grade, they will all be with the 2 nd grade teacher.
Face-to-Face Pickup Face-to-Face Pickup will start at 2:55. If you prefer to park and walk up to the building you may use the crosswalks and an attendant will be there to direct traffic. Teachers will be in the same area each day. The teacher will make sure you are on the list and you can take your student.
Face-to-Face Pick-Up People picking up students will not be allowed to stand inside the school or in the front entry of the building. The only exception to this is during inclement weather. A staff member will hold a sign for parents to come in the foyer after busses dismiss.
What Can You Do to Help? Please share our dismissal procedures with anyone that picks up your child. Be patient. We have tried to address possible issues but realize there will still be some that might come up.
Please return the packet information as soon as possible. Thank you for your support and we look forward to a great school year with you and your children!
