In the event of the need to dismiss students from the school early, the school will assume that all students who were scheduled to ride the bus home that day will ride the bus home for an early dismissal. Early dismissals are announced on local media and internet (WICZ Closings and Delays / WBNG Closings).
The school will attempt to contact the parents/guardian of all the students via the school emergency messaging system, School Reach. In an effort to keep our phone lines open to respond to changing conditions during an Early Dismissal, parents are asked only to contact the school for the following reasons: to change previously made transportation arrangements, or to notify the school of a change in who will be picking up the student.
We will not place any student on a bus that is not scheduled unless we have permission from the parent/guardian to do so. Students who do not ride a bus will be kept at the school until a parent (or an authorized adult) comes to pick up the child.
Parents are urged to check local media and Internet outlets if they become aware of approaching storms that occur during the school day, and keep near a phone and to keep their cell phones turned on.
In the event that local school announce an Early Dismissal, busses typically run on the following schedules:
Will pick up our students at the closing time announced for the high school then go to the high school for their students.
Will pick up our students one hour prior to their high school closing time.
Will pick up our students within the hour after their high school closing time.
Will pick up our students at the same time as their high school closing time.
Will pick up our students 20-30 minutes prior to their elementary school closing time.
Will pick up our students 30-45 minutes after their high school closing time.
Will most likely pick up our students a little earlier than their high school closing time. They will call us.
Will pick up our students within 30-45 of their high school closing time.
