News from the Principal
In order to ensure the safety of all of our Geggie students, I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate parent expectations as it relates to the transportation of your child/ren.
· Changes in Transportation - students who are to be picked up by an adult other than you MUST have a written note communicating this change and indicating the names/relationship of the adult picking up your child/ren. If a child does NOT provide written communication to their classroom teacher, the parent pick-up supervisors will not be informed of the changes, then vehicles will be immediately directed to the main school parking lot and the adult will need to go into the office for parent contact verification. Once parents verify the change, child/ren will then be dismissed through the main office.
· Critical - any parent phone calls indicating a change in their child/ren’s transportation at the end of the day MUST be made by 3:30 p.m. After that time, all of our attention will be focused on our dismissal procedure to ensure a smooth and accurate dismissal process for all students. Parents who have scheduled 4:00 p.m. appointments are encouraged to pick up their child by 3:30 p.m. to avoid crossing over with the dismissal process. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, trying to accommodate last-minute changes in transportation negatively impacts our dismissal procedures and creates much confusion on where students are supposed to go.
· Parent Pick-up Process - we are requesting that all parent pick-up vehicles display student “car tags” each day! This tag serves as an important safety measure that confirms approval and speeds up our parent pick-up process.
· Car Seats - in addition, we ask parents to please arrange for child/ren to enter the vehicle from the passenger side only to ensure students are not crossing into the path of passing vehicles (it’s very helpful to have children’s car seats on the passenger side of the back seat). Parents are asked to remain in the vehicle at all times. Staff members will assist children into the vehicle. If you wish to help your child/ren secure their seatbelts, we invite you to pull into the parking spaces in the front parking lot, thus allowing the flow of our pick-up line to continue moving.
Again, thank you for your immediate attention to these critical dismissal details. We are absolutely committed to the safety of your children and appreciate your cooperation!
