Dismissal Reminders

Good evening Ward families,
Thank you for your patience today as we adjusted to our new parent pick-up dismissal process. Our students did a great job, and we are confident that our process will become more efficient as our students learn our procedures.
As evidenced by today, we have a much larger number of parent pick-ups than we have had in the past. Due to this large number and limited staffing, there will be times when our parents will have to wait a little longer. In order to help expedite our process, we are once again asking parents to remain in your vehicles and remain in the car line. We do not have the capacity to service parents that come to the door to request students in addition to parents that are in their vehicles.
Tomorrow and moving forward, we will not be able to assist parents that come to the main entrance after our dismissal process has started to pick up your child. You will be asked to return to your vehicle and to wait in our car loop line. If you know that you will not be able to wait, please plan to arrive to the school no later than 1:45 p.m.to pick up your child.
Lastly, all our car rider students will have their car rider tag on their bookbags by tomorrow and parents will be given your parent pick-up tags to place on the rear-view mirror of your vehicle. Each family will be given two car tags. You can share your car tags with anyone that you would like to be able to pick up your child. Please make sure that this tag is visible when you come to the school to help us speed up our dismissal process.
We appreciate your help and cooperation in advance as we continue to adjust to our new process.
Dr. Chatman, Proud Principal
