Arrival and Dismissal Information

Arrival and Dismissal of all students will be done safely. In order to ensure your child's safety it is imperative that you follow the rules of Drop-off and Pick-up.

Arrival: Morning Drop-off Parents can drop their children off at school between 7:35 and 7:50 am in the Cultural Center. A teacher will be present each morning to greet your children as they arrive. We will begin our morning prayer promptly at 7:50am. The school day begins immediately following morning prayer. Students arriving after 7:50 will be marked as tardy.  Parents are responsible to report to the office and sign their child in as late. Please make every effort to arrive between 7:35 and 7:50 so the students can begin their academic learning time.

Dismissal: Pick-up from the Cultural Center All students will gather in the Cultural Center each afternoon to be dismissed. the Pre k - Kindergarten classes will be dismissed at 2:20pm from the Dummer Street. Pre-K through Kindergarten students will be dismissed from this location in an assembly line fashion. Parents will stay in cars as the teachers escort the children to the car.

Students in Grade 1 through 6 will be dismissed at 2:30pm from the front of the Cultural Center in an assembly line fashion. Parents also have the option of parking and walking into the Cultural Center to dismiss their child.

 *Please note that we will only dismiss your child to a parent, unless otherwise noted on your Authorization Form (This form may include as many people as you like. Children will NOT be released through phone verification alone?pick-up persons MUST be written in the file). A photo ID will be necessary from any individual that the teacher has not dismissed to before. If you know in advance that your son or daughter will be dismissed to someone other than a parent or usual caretaker, please send a written note.
