DISMISSAL PROCEDURES

We, at A.L. Wilson Elementary, value student safety. 

If a change in dismissal procedures for your child must occur, please send a note to school, with your child, in the morning detailing the dismissal procedures for that day.  

If no note/phone call is received, students will follow their regular dismissal procedures.

Line-up for car pick-up cannot begin until 2:55 p.m.  Please adhere to this time and speed limits on school grounds.  Please remain in your vehicle at all times and there is to be NO SMOKING on school property.

We begin releasing students to cars at approximately 3:10 p.m.   If you sign your child out before 3:10 p.m., it will be marked as an early dismissal. 

Thank you for your cooperation in helping us keep all of our students safe.   

EMERGENCY CONTACT FORMS

Should you have additional names to be added to your child’s contact information, please make the office aware immediately to avoid any inconvenience.  We need to be able to contact you especially in the event of an emergency. 

As your information/contacts change, please make the office aware immediately.  It is of the greatest importance that we be able to contact the appropriate individuals for students when needed.

Custody Papers

A copy of all custody papers must be on file in the office.  For the safety of your child, please check with the office, as soon as possible, to make sure that we have all necessary papers.  Parents of an incoming student with specific custody arrangements must provide the office with this information immediately.  If there are no custody papers on file at school, please expect that the school will assume both parents have custody of children.

 * Custody papers not on file cannot be honored, please provide copies to the office. 

Volunteers/Chaperones: Clearances Reminder

Please be reminded that all volunteers/chaperones must provide all 3 clearances prior to volunteering/chaperoning at their child’s school.  The forms should be submitted to your child's school office.  The three clearances include:

BUS DISMISSAL

 Please feel free to contact the school if you believe your child’s bus to be very late.

Also, bus dismissal begins at 3:20 p.m. here at ALW. However, not all buses arrive at the same time.  Bus dismissal actually occurs between the approximate times of 3:25 p.m. and 3:55 p.m.

Again, should you have any concerns regarding your child’s bus stop or arrival/dismissal times, please feel free to contact the school.

Late arrivals and early dismissals will occur with the security guard, at the security desk, in the entrance way.  You will be greeted by the security guard upon approaching the door. If the security guard is not present, when you ring the bell, you will be asked to wait for his/her return.  If you, or an approved individual, will be picking up your child, please have your I.D. readily available to present to security. 

Furthermore, forgotten lunch boxes, snacks, notebooks and such will be dropped off with the security guard at the security desk.
