I know that dismissal can be frustrating because the car lines are long. I have always said that while our dismissal is as efficient as possible with our current circumstances and horseshoe layout, it is ultimately “controlled chaos”. I need your help to make dismissal run a little smoother and faster. We are experiencing several cars not arriving until after 3:00 P.M. I encourage everyone to try being in the car line between 2:40 P.M. and 3:00 P.M. When cars arrive after 3:00 P.M., it causes my staff to be out front until 3:15 P.M. This delays Aftercare, tutoring, and parent conferences. I know that situations occur from time to time in which parents are running late and cannot be in line before 3:00 P.M. I am not concerned about those situations. I am more concerned about those that intentionally arrive after 3:00 P.M. in hopes of avoiding the car line. If everyone works together, we can achieve our goal of dismissal ending at 3:00 P.M. I would like to thank everyone in advance for your cooperation with this matter.
