New Dismissal Procedure Begins

Dismissal Information

Our new walk-up dismissal procedure goes into effect this Tuesday, October 11. All parents will need to park and proceed to the door that corresponds with your last name to pickup your students. Please refer to the maps linked below and if you have any questions, contact Christina Williams.

The morning drop-off procedure has not changed and will remain a drive-up process.

All week our Sparks have been preparing for the new dismissal procedure. Each student colored a spark with their corresponding door color and participated in a “Dismissal Drill” to familiarize themselves with their new exit. They are very excited to be using a new color-coded dismissal format!


Information for our fall open houses are now on Facebook! We hope you will share or tag your friends and invite families to #StartYourSpark!
