Dismissal Procedures

  • School is dismissed at 2:35 p.m. Parents who pick their children up in the afternoon are asked to park their cars in the school parking lot or legal street spaces and walk to the front entrance to await their child (grades 1-5) if they are being dismissed from the walkers’ exit, or meet the kindergarten staff at the kindergarten entrance. Walkers will be dismissed from the front of the building. Kiss and Ride students are escorted to the parking lot by staff and will be monitored until their car arrives. Please stay in your vehicle if picking up your child from the Kiss and Ride Exit.

    Please send a note to your child’s teacher whenever you need to pick your child up before 2:35 p.m., or whenever you need to change your child’s after school plans. This ensures appropriate communication and minimizes classroom disruptions.

    Please note that we are not able to honor change-of-plans requests that are phoned in to the school office after 12:00 p.m.

    It is essential we are given ample notice of bus/dismissal changes. Please send only authorized adults to pick up your children. Dismissal changes may be made phoned into the office, sent in with your child in writing, or e-mailed to cbdismissal@acps.k12.va.us.
