For families needing to make a change to their child's regular dismissal plans, please use a separate Green Note for each day to let us know what the change in arrangements are. For your child's safety, we ask that you do this day by day, and not include several days within a week on one note. Anything we all can do to reduce confusion around dismissal results in a safer process for all of our students, so we thank you for taking the extra time to support us with this.
Please also ensure your child knows what to do in the event they arrive home to an empty house. Our transportation department continually struggles to staff district routes (this is due to labor shortages, not a lack of effort), meaning we regularly have sub drivers who may not know your family's routines. Make sure your child knows their schedule (again, consistency makes this a much easier situation for a child to master) and a neighbor they can go to in the event of an emergency.
