The school day begins at 9:10 a.m, doors will open at 9 a.m. 

Dismissal time is 3:50 p.m.

Patrols are assigned to help the teachers and students with arrival and dismissal procedures.

In the event that your child needs to be dismissed prior to the end of the school day, or other than his/her normal way, please send in a written note to the teacher.

In case of extenuating circumstances, before NOON send an email to the classroom teacher, Mrs. Carney, and Mrs. Cannon
indicating the change. Mrs. Carney carneykx@pwcs.edu  or Mrs Cannon, cannondl@pwcs.edu will email you back to let you know if the change can be made.

To avoid getting caught in dismissal traffic it is recommended that you pick your child prior to 3:25 or park on the street.
 
PHONE CALLS CAN NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED REQUESTING A DISMISSAL CHANGE.

   Our priorities are both the education and safety of your child. With approximately 700 students to dismiss, phone calls can not be accepted and email requests should be reserved for emergencies. (In the extremely rare event that you have a significant emergency after noon, call the school and an administrator will make a decision regarding the situation.)
 
   The circle at the front door of the school is to be used exclusively for school buses and emergency vehicles. No cars will be allowed in this area. Two new signs have been installed in the parking lot near the trailers. They allow 10 minute parking should you need to enter the school for a drop off or pick up.
