Arrival/Dismissal Procedures

Arrival Procedures

 

Arrival takes place daily between 7:45-8:00am.  

 

Upon arrival, students will head directly to their classrooms where they will eat breakfast.  Instruction begins promptly at 8:00am, so it’s important that students arrive on time each day. 

 

Car Arrival Procedures:

ArrivalsThe gate to our lot will be open each morning by 7:30am and cars may begin to line up at that time. The line will continue out from the lot to Washington Blvd on the north side of the street. To help our arrival process run smoothly, please only enter our parking lot by making a right hand turn from Washington Blvd.  The arrival map below shows how cars should be lined up in the parking lot and on Washington Blvd.


At 7:45am, Atlas staff members will begin unloading students from cars.  Please ensure your child is ready to unload as soon as you pull into the lot. To keep everyone safe, do not let kids out of the car until a staff member is present.

 

As you exit out of the parking lot, please make a right hand turn onto Washington Blvd.

 

At the end of arrival we will close the gates to the parking lot.  If you arrive after the gates are closed, please park and walk your child to Door #1 on Washington Blvd.

 

Walk-Up Arrival Procedures:

If you choose to walk your child to school, please escort them to the front entrance, Door #1, on Washington Blvd. Please wait with your child until they are greeted by a staff member and they enter the building. 

 

Dismissal Procedures

 

Dismissal takes place daily between 3:30-3:45.

 

Car Dismissal Procedures:

Please display your Atlas Student Sign in your window at dismissal so that we know who you are picking up. We will only release students to adults who are authorized to pick them up. In the event of an emergency, where you should need someone to pick up your child who is not on the authorized pick-up list, please email your child’s teacher or call the school.   

 

The gates to the lot will open at 3:10 so that cars can begin lining up. Once the lot is filled, cars should continue to line up on Washington Blvd on the north side of the street. To help our dismissal process run smoothly, please only enter our parking lot by making a right hand turn from Washington Blvd.  

 

At 3:30pm, we will begin to dismiss students. Please make sure your car is in park and you stay in your car at dismissal. An Atlas staff member will walk your child to your car.  Once it is safe to pull forward, please exit that parking lot by making a right hand turn on Washington Blvd.  If you need to get out of your car at any point during dismissal or take a bit longer to get your child situated, please pull in the middle parking spots so that the flow of traffic can continue.

 

Dismissal ends at 3:45pm and the gates will be closed at that time.

 

Walk-Up Dismissal Procedures:

Families walking home from school need to pick-up your child at the front entrance, Door #1, on Washington Blvd.  There will be staff members at the door to greet you and dismiss your child.
