Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

The regular school time will be: 7:35 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Students are late if they arrive to school after 7:35 a.m. Students eating breakfast should arrive to school by 7:15 a.m.

Safety is priority for our children therefore, we provide adult supervision beginning at 7:00 a.m. Parents/Guardians may drop off students beginning at 7:00 a.m. and be dropped off before 7:30 a.m. 

If you drop off your child after 7:35 a.m., please walk them into the office and sign them in. 

Breakfast is served between 7:00 a.m. and 7:35 a.m.

Dismissal begins at 3:00 p.m. therefore, students will not be checked out of school AFTER 2:30 p.m. When children are taken out of school early, they are missing valuable learning time. We encourage you to allow your child to complete their entire school day.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Morning Drop Off:  School doors open to the students at 7:00 a.m.  Parents will know that students can enter the building when a staff member from Johnson is on duty on the front car ramp.  For your child’s safety, please do not drop off children until 7:00 a.m. Attending staff do not arrive until 7:00 a.m.

Car Riders:  Each car rider will be given a car tag for dismissal. Please keep this in your car.  When picking your child up in the afternoon, please hang this card on your rear view mirror.  If you do not have a car rider tag when picking up a child in the afternoon, you will be asked to park your car and come inside to pick up your child.  A photo ID will be required. Also if a friend or babysitter will be picking your child up please make sure they are in the system and designated as having permission to pick up your child.  No child will be released to anyone that is not in the system.  On the car ramp all adults picking up students must stay inside their cars.  Please do not stand on the sidewalk and wait.  Please do not get out of your car to get your child. This will only delay dismissal.

As you approach the car ramp in the morning or afternoon, please take note of the personnel standing for assistance.  All cars entering the driveway must form one line. Please pull all the way forward past the entrance walkway to the first person on duty.  There are several staff members out on the ramp for your convenience.  This will make loading and unloading efficient for all.  

Dismissal Information:  
Each child will be issued a tag stating their form of transportation home. If you should need to change transportation for your child, please make those changes in person at the school. ALL CHANGES OF TRANSPORTATION MUST BE MADE BEFORE 2:30 p.m. We want to be sure that each child arrives home safely.
