Dismissal Procedure

September 2, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The safety of our students is our number one concern at Chapel. The afternoon dismissal can become quite dangerous for parents, students, and bus personnel if we do not have a safety system in place particularly with the anticipated increase in families using the Flood car loop. In order to alleviate these safety issues, Chapel dismissal protocol will be as follows:

If you are picking up your children in the Flood Middle School car loop, they will be dismissed from out of the same doors they entered the building in the morning. Teachers will help load cars safely on the passenger side in order of arrival. Because of this anticipated increase of families using the car loop, it is very important to notify the office or your child's teacher of any changes to your plans. No cars will be allowed in the loop in front of Chapel Street School after 2:30 PM. Some of our buses and vans arrive early and need to be off of Chapel Street for their safety and the safety of other drivers. Van students will be dismissed from the gym/specialist hallway and escorted to their respective vans.

Please remember, there is no parking in the loop itself. Flood Middle School dismissal is at 2:45 PM, and no cars will be able to enter the loop during that time. By 3:00, their buses are gone and you may enter safely. We ask for your patience at dismissal time as we dismiss our students as quickly and safely as possible.
