Dinwiddie Elementary School Morning Drop-Off and Afternoon Pick-Up Procedures (2016-2017)
Morning Drop Off
Side door on the parent parking lot opens at 8:15AM. Students report directly to class when they enter the building. If they are going to eat breakfast they may go directly to breakfast before reporting to class. This will give them a few more minutes to eat.
Side doors in the parent parking lot close at 8:35AM
Once doors are closed students walk to the front of the building and enter the front doors. Students can walk to class on their own if they enter through the front doors of the school. A tardy pass will be required before going to class.
Afternoon Pick –Up (Cafeteria Doors)
Parents have been given a number associated with their child. This number is to be placed on the dashboard of the vehicle. Each parent can receive two cards with their child’s number to start the school year. No more than 3 numbers are issued per family. If you did not receive a card you must come to the office unless you have a written note on file before 2:50PM. Parents can give the card to any person they want to pick up their child. Parents remain in their vehicle and drive around to the cafeteria doors. Children are escorted to their parents. Parents arriving early (3:00PM) are asked to form a double line around the tech department offices. Once handicapped busses are loaded a signal will be given for parents to move up to the cafeteria doors. The wait time for parents arriving at 3:25PM is less than parents arriving before 3:00PM. Students are not called to the cafeteria for pick-up until 3:20PM.
*Any authorized person picking up children for the first time must come to the office and present their drivers license before child will be released from school.
