Early Release Staggered Schedule Announced

Next Friday, September 18th is our first EARLY RELEASE of the school year.  The traffic congestion on campus will be very heavy.  In an effort to alleviate this traffic, we are implementing a staggered release schedule.  We will be releasing students according to their grade level.  Please see below for the dismissal times for students. As explained below, please try not to arrive too early and disrupt a dismissal in progress.

11:05 a.m. ALL kindergarten students (both half day and full day students) are released.  Please use normal pick up procedures.  Kindergarten students will not have lunch on campus.  If your child is staying for Boulder Club, please pack them a lunch/snacks for the afternoon.

11:30 a.m. Pre-school students are released in the round-about in front of the office.  Pre-school students will not have lunch. Please be sure to enter campus off of Banff Ave.

11:30 a.m. 1st & 2nd grade students are released via normal procedures either through drive-up or walk-up pick-up.  Students will be permitted to have a light snack in their classrooms prior to dismissal if you wish to provide one for them.  If your child is staying for Boulder Club, please pack them a lunch/snacks for the afternoon.

12:15 p.m. 3rd – 8th grade students are released via normal procedures either through drive-up or walk-up pick-up.  3rd – 5th grade students will be permitted to have a light snack/lunch prior to dismissal if you wish to provide one for them.    6th – 8th grade students will not have a lunch period.  If your child is staying for Boulder Club, please pack them a lunch/snacks for the afternoon.

Parents with students in Kindergarten, 1st, or 2nd AND 3rd-8th may pick ALL of their students up at the 12:15 p.m. dismissal.

Please note there will be a line of traffic for the 11:30 a.m. dismissal.  If you are arriving early for the 12:15 p.m. dismissal and we have not completed the 11:30 a.m. dismissal, you will be instructed to circle the building and re-enter the line until we have completed that dismissal.  It is advised that you do not arrive on campus prior 11:25 a.m. for the 11:30 a.m. dismissal or 11:50 a.m. for the 12:15 p.m. dismissal.

One of the biggest issues that arises during half day dismissal is that parents see a longer drive through line and decide they no longer want to wait in the line.  They then park and walk on to campus.  However, when this happens, the students aren’t aware of the change and they are not in the right location.  Please select one method for pick-up and do not change it so your child is in the correct location.  This will help the entire process run much more quickly and smoothly.

As always, we thank you for your continued support and patience as we strive to create a safe campus for our students.

you may pick up all your children at once at 12:15.
Let your child know whether you will be at drive-up or walk-up
and do not change that decision.
If you are using Boulder Club,
pack a lunch or snacks for your child to enjoy in the afternoon.
