Pick-Up Tags and Dismissal Procedures
a parent/guardian listed on the approved pick-up list will be issued
one pick-up tag free of charge upon request after providing a valid ID.
Any additional tags are $5 each. The notion of the pick-up tag is to
allow the holder to efficiently pick up his/her child without having to
show a valid ID each time. (This is why we need to check ID and your
listing in our database with regard to pick up of your child.)
on car rider and walker duty will read the names of your children from
the pick-up tag to other waiting teachers on the other end of radios so
that your children can be called to come outside to meet you. Students
are then escorted to their waiting parent or vehicle for a safe and
students who walk home independently or ride their bikes in the same
way, the exit is on the side of the building near the playground. These
students must have an "Independent Walker/Biker" signed permission slip
on file with us. They are watched by a teacher as they exit.
Afternoon Bus Dismissal
who return home by bus arrive in the bus holding area and are asked to
sit in lines according to their bus route. When buses arrive and
students are reasonably quiet and orderly, they are asked to move to
their designated bus. Younger children are directed to sit at the front
of the bus.
will find the rules for riding the bus and consequences for violating
the rules as part of the Beaufort County Code of Conduct. They are just
what you would expect them to be – be reasonably quiet, always sit down
on the bus; in effect, students should do their part to make the bus
trip as safe as possible. If they cannot or will not do so, they are at
risk of losing the privilege to ride the bus anywhere from a day to
permanently. That last situation is very rare, but has happened. Safety
is of the greatest importance on the bus, and bus rules are enforced.
Changes in Transportation
changes in transportation of students present opportunities to make
mistakes, the only way we can make such changes is if the request is in
writing. Further, we have no way of authenticating your voice on the
phone. Notes, faxes, Agenda Book messages, or emails are needed to make
the changes you request in your child’s transportation arrangements.
Please make these changes prior to 2:15 pm. After 2:15 pm, the chances of
locating the teacher and the class, not interrupting the class, and
making the rest of the arrangements (teachers and assistants share
responsibilities for the movement of students to buses, walkers, car
riders, etc. and would have to coordinate that
with whom they share such duties) get to be slimmer. We do not want to
make a mistake. Please help us with that by being sure to clearly
identify the date and duration of the change. Emailed transportation
changes can be sent to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
you wish to make changes to the adults listed that have your permission
to pick up your child on the pick up list, you will need to come into
the office to make the change in writing. No changes can be made to authorize additional adults by email, fax, or by phone.
