Pick Up Procedures:
Release of students
All students will be released to parents or guardians only unless alternate arrangements for pick-up have been made for the day. If your child will be picked up by someone other than a parent or guardian please call or send a note to the office identifying whom your child is going home with on a particular day.
*Any child not picked up by 20 minutes following dismissal will be taken to extended care and assessed a fee through their family FACTS account. (i.e. 3:50pm on full days and 12:20pm on half days)
All students in a family or carpool are to wait in the same area as the youngest child in the group for pick–up. Family nameplates must be displayed on the car window so that they are visible to teachers loading students. Dismissal is not a time to conference with teachers. It is essential to our students’ safety that the teachers’ attention is on our students at this time.
If your child is delayed in the school building and is not ready for pick up when your vehicle is in the designated pick up zone, you will be directed to pull into a specific parking zone as to not delay traffic. All pickup locations are on St. Agnes property. Please do not ask your child to meet you at an alternate location.
