New Dismissal Protocol

Dear EVCS Family,

Over the past two weeks we have rolled out a new dismissal protocol at EVCS. Perhaps you’ve noticed the teachers in the schoolyard taking a few extra seconds to say goodbye to your child and making marks on a green clipboard. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our (your) children, and so we are asking our teachers to check kids off and record who picks up each and every child at the end of the school day. If a child goes on a school bus or attends an afterschool program, that schedule is indicated on the clipboards as well and the teachers are marking kids off as they are dismissed to these programs. This takes the pressure off of our children to remember where to go at 2:50pm and ensures that all of our kids are safely where they should be every day. Our teachers are already vigilantly implementing this protocol and we appreciate your promptness and patience at dismissal time to support this new routine. As we get used to the new dismissal protocol on our end, we also want to reach out to families to ensure everyone is working under the same expectations. Please note the following dismissal guidelines:

Teachers must have up-to-date information on students’ weekly schedules. The default assumption is that you or your designee (indicated on your child’s blue emergency contact card) will pick your child up every day. If your child regularly rides the school bus or attends an after school program it is the parents’ responsibility to make sure the classroom teachers have this information.
