Dismissal Procedures

For the safety of all children, parents/guardians must show a photo ID at pickup time for all ELC (Early Learning Center) students or if you do not have a car tag. 

Students in K2-K4 must be picked up and signed out in their classrooms by a parent or guardian. Please pick up your child using the exterior door, if the classroom has one. Students who are not picked up by 3:30 PM will report to After Care.

Students in grades K5-2 should be picked up from the car line. Students who are not picked up by 3:30 PM will report to After Care.

Students in grades 3-12 will be dismissed from the covered walkway under the bridge at the Main Campus.  Each family has been issued car tags to facilitate an orderly dismissal; additional car tags are available for purchase in the school office. The car tags are to be displayed on the rear-view mirror during car line. Parents should remain in their cars, and follow the car line around the building and under the bridge. Each family will also receive a nameplate to attach to the passenger side visor. When approaching the car line, please flip the visor down so the school staff can clearly see the last name printed on the nameplate to facilitate the quick dismissal.  

If another adult will be picking up your child, please call the school office at least one hour prior to dismissal to submit the person’s name and his physical description for the teachers and dismissal attendants. We cannot release a child to anyone to whom a parent or guardian has not given permission to pick up the child.

Campus-to-Campus Student Shuttle Bus for Grades 3-12

In an effort to assist families with children on both campuses, we will be providing a campus-to-campus shuttle bus in the mornings and afternoons (contact the Finance Office for fees). In order to utilize the student shuttle service, families will be required to complete the Permission Click form, which will be emailed. Students who do not arrive on time at the bus loading and unloading zone will need to be taken to the White Marsh Campus by their parents. Transportation will not be provided for students who miss the bus in the morning. Please note that adjustments may be made to this service as the school year develops.

This shuttle will be provided at one time in the morning and one time in the afternoon. The student shuttle bus will leave the White Marsh Campus at 7:40 AM to travel to the Main Campus. At the end of the day, the bus will leave the Main Campus at 3:15 PM to travel to the White Marsh Campus, arriving by 3:30 PM. There is no After Care provided for students in grades 3-12. Parent MUST pick up their children by 3:30 PM. This service is available for all students in grades 3-12 who have younger siblings at the White Marsh Campus. Students who are using this service are asked to arrive at 7:35 AM at the designated bus loading/unloading zone. The shuttle location will be marked in the parking lot. 

Students in grades 3-12 may utilize Before Care at the White Marsh Campus at the normal Before Care rate while waiting for the bus service; however, After Care will not be provided for any Main Campus students on the White Marsh Campus. All students utilizing Aftercare will need to be picked up from their individual campuses.
