How do I let Shady Side know if I'm making changes to normal dismissal procedures?
If your child is being picked up by you, or an adult listed on the emergency card, or if you want them to go home on their regulary scheduled bus, you can send in a note with your child in the morning or call the office by 3:30 p.m. The office is a very busy place at dismissal, so to avoid any confusion will not be calling students down to the office for early dismissal pick up between 3:30 and 3:45. Avoid sending in emails later in the day or calling at the end of the day to avoid any miscommunication.
If you are picking up your child, car rider parents park in the side lot. You'll need to leave the car and come to meet children in the gym. Until staff recognize all parents, be ready to show identification. If you are sending someone to pick up your child, who is not on the emergency card, you must call the school and talk directly to a secretary or administrator. Again, they will be asked to show identification.
Please do not call the school to make a bus change on the day you would like it to occur. The school administration, the transportation office and the bus company should agree that this can occur. Mrs. Quigley in the office has a form you can fill out to request a future bus change.
