Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Each day, over 400 students who attend Reutter School journey to and from school in a multitude of ways—most ride buses, some ride bikes, some walk, and some ride in cars. Here at Reutter School, the administration and staff want to assure each child’s safety at all times, especially on arrival and dismissal from school. If your child rides a bus, we are aware of his or her transportation arrangements. If your child journeys home by car or walks however, please provide a note to your child’s teacher indicating the way your child travels to and from school. If anyone other than a parent is picking up your child, please send in a letter authorizing the school to release your child to the designated party. Also, in order to keep district transportation on time, please arrive no later than 2:05 pm in order to sign out your child at the end of the school day. Students will be dismissed at 2:10 pm.

Please keep in mind the school start time for Reutter School is 7:15 am. All students are expected to arrive to school and be present in their homerooms on time. Students who are being dropped off by any means other than a school bus must enter through the main entrance door. No students will be permitted to enter the school building prior to 7:15 am.

Thank you for understanding the safety precaution that requires parents to sign out students who depart school as “parent pick up” at the main office. This assures that an adult the child knows will escort the child through the school’s busy parking lot to a car safely.
