Dismissal Procedure

Office Pickup NO LONGER Permitted.

Curbside Pickup

When buses are still at Falcon Ridge, the first car will wait at the southeast corner of the north parking lot. When the buses are dismissed, a FR staff member will signal for the first eight vehicles to pull up in front of the building. Once your child(ren) is in your vehicle, you can leave as long as there is not a vehicle in front of you. (Example:  Vehicle 2 cannot leave until vehicle 1 is gone. Vehicle 4 cannot leave until vehicles 1, 2, and 3 are gone.) When all vehicles are gone, a staff member will signal for the next group of cars to pull up in front of the building.

DO NOT park in front of the yellow lines. These areas are reserved for buses and mail delivery. Thank you for your cooperation!

During the Day

Parents/guardians are asked to call or send a note with their child prior to appointments and vacations, etc. Please include the name of the person picking up your child, if it is someone other than the parent/guardian. Whoever picks up the child will be asked to sign the child out of the office, while a secretary contacts the child through the teacher. Students picked up prior to 3:30 p.m. will result in a half-day absence.

We suggest that appointments be scheduled after school or on non-school days whenever possible.

Walkers/Bikers - All walkers will gather at the front door (main entrance) and will be dismissed after all buses have left.  Walkers heading east and north are to walk to the four-way stop at Columbus Avenue and 12th Street to cross safely.  Walkers heading south will be directed down our front sidewalk to the sidewalk along Columbus Avenue and can safely cross at the four-way stop at Columbus and 7th Street/County Road 37.  *Walkers will not be allowed to walk across the bus lane in front of the school.  Instead, they should go to the nearest four-way stop sign to safely cross the busy street around our school.  We have found these to be the safest walking routes for your child(ren).
