Daily Dismissal Procedures- Hampden Meadows School
All busses will be loaded and leave the school property PRIOR to any car pick ups, walkers or bikers being released. Please be patient.
If your child is a walker, they will be dismissed out the front doors after all busses are rolling. Your child is a “walker” if they live within the ¾ mile distance and are not eligible for a bus.
Children can not be dismissed as walkers with the intent of bypassing the car pick up line.
DO NOT PARK YOUR CARS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD STREETS. THIS IS A DANGER TO STUDENTS. If you are driving your car to pick up your child, they are not a walker. They are a car “pick up”.
If you want to walk to school to meet your child who is a walker or biker, please meet them under the big tree in the front of the school on the front lawn.
From there you can proceed to walk/bike home with your child.
CAR PICK UP LINE:
The car pick up line forms on Kent Street. The street is one way in the direction of Sowams toward New Meadow at dismissal time. Pull up along the left hand sidewalk of Kent Street in single file format. The pick up line will begin once all busses have been loaded and left.
Please place a large sheet of paper with your child’s name on it in your dash on the driver’s side. We will provide some paper and a marker today if necessary. The line moves quickly with this system.
