PICKING UP CHILDREN AT SCHOOL – To guarantee the safety of each child, it becomes necessary to establish a strict procedure for picking up students during and after school hours.  During school hours all parents are required to report to the office where their child will be paged for them.  Please report to the office and wait for your child.  Dismissal time is 3:15.  Please stay in your car and follow the pick-up procedure (attached).  Cars will enter and exit from Fox Run Road.  Please remember that car rider notes must be renewed at the beginning of every school year.
