Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

  • The safety of our children is of utmost importance at all times. This includes arrival and dismissal. We share with you our directives for this year to make the arrival and dismissal processes flow smoothly and safely.

    Arrival and Dismissal:    

    • Car Students — 7:45–8:10 a.m. is arrival time; dismissal begins at 2:45 p.m.

      Arrival: Park in the school lot and come to the front center door of the school. In the morning, a staff member will greet your child. After 8:15 a.m., a late slip to class is needed. Please park in the school lot, buzz in at the front door, and come to the office to sign in your child.

      Dismissal: At dismissal time, teachers will be with the students on the sidewalk along the parking lot side of the school. They will escort each child to your car. Stay in the car line and slowly pull ahead where the teachers will be waiting with each child. The safety of each child is our top priority. Cars can arrive between 2:40–2:55 p.m. This will help the congestion and flow of traffic.

    • Bus Students — In the morning, buses drop off students on Flower City. Two staff members are on the walk to greet students as they arrive. A third staff member is at the door watching students as they come up the walk and will let them in. A fourth staff member checks in each student as they enter the school. The safety of all is our top priority.

    Extended Care ProgramArrival is 7–7:45 a.m. at the left side door. In the morning, a staff member will greet you at the door and escort your child to the ECP room. In the afternoon, please park in a non-reserved space, come to the same door, and ring the buzzer. Pickup time is until 5:45 p.m. A staff member will verify your identity and buzz you in the building. Proceed up the stairs to the ECP rooms to sign out your child(ren). Dismissal options are on the ECP information sheet.

    NOTE: If a child has not been picked up by 3 p.m., they will be sent to ECP (Extended Care Program) and you will be billed. We understand once in a while there is a traffic delay or one runs late from an appointment. Call us at 585.458.3786 if this happens so we can let your child know you are on your way.

    Thank you for your support and cooperation!
