Updated Dismissal Information starting on October 23rd, 2023
Updated Ptarmigan Elementary Dismissal Information
Starting October 23rd, families that are requesting to check out their student early will have to be in the office before 3:15pm. After 3:15pm, the office has been instructed to have parents either wait in the car line or wait by your classroom door for the actual dismissal time of 3:25pm for walkers and 3:30pm for all other students.
WHY: To decrease the amount of students checking out in the office early.
The end of each day is an extremely busy time for our teachers and the students. It is also very challenging for the office staff to call numerous classrooms to get students to the office. Starting October 23rd, parents that want to pick up their students early for an appointment need to be at school before 3:15pm. After 3:15pm, the office has been instructed to only call the classroom to update teachers on how students are getting home. If parents/families are picking their student up after 3:15pm, they can wait in car line or at the classroom door until the walkers are dismissed at 3:25pm or school wide dismissal which starts at 3:30pm.
The Front Office closes at 4pm so ALL students should be picked up by 4pm.
Please do not park and wait for your student on the left side of the student pick up area as this creates a safety hazard.
Parents/Guardians that walk, bring your tag to the flag pole at the front of the building and a staff number will radio your dismissal number. Your student will meet you at the flag pole.
*Starting on September 5th 2023, parents/guardians that don’t have a dismissal tag with them will be directed to the front office for verification that they are approved to pick-up. Picture ID will be required for verification.
