Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Arrival

1.) All students are to report to their assigned classrooms at the time of arrival. All students in Levels K-7 must be signed in by a parent/guardian or other authorized adult. In each instance, please provide your child’s teacher with a written note if your child will be picked up by an adult other than the parent or legal guardian.

2.) The only doors of the Parish Life Center that will be open are: (i) the door at the gym end; (ii) the door at the softball field end; and (iii) the main entrance door in the courtyard.

3.) Students should arrive on time (9:30 AM) since sessions begin promptly. Please do not enter the Parish Life Center or drop children off prior to 9:25 AM, as there will not be adequate adult supervision. Lateness interferes with the lessons and is disruptive. At 9:40 AM all doors will be closed and locked.

4.) All late students (after 9:40 AM) must check in at the Religious Education Office before proceeding to class.

5.) For reasons of security, all doors will be kept closed and locked each morning. Any one arriving after 9:40 AM must use the main entrance in the courtyard for admittance. Please ring the bell for admittance. Anyone not directly affiliated with PREP should make prior arrangements with the DRE to enter the Parish Life Center while PREP is in session.

Dismissal

1.) Students must be picked up by a parent/guardian or other authorized adult from their classrooms at 10:45 AM unless otherwise pre-arranged with the catechist or DRE in advance. All students in Levels K-7 must be signed out by a parent or other authorized adult. In each instance, please provide your child’s teacher with a written note if your child will be picked up by an adult other than the parent/guardian.

2.) Parents/guardians must park and walk to the Parish Life Center to pick up their children. For safety reasons please turn off your car while picking up your children.

3.) Students may not wait for late parents/guardians outside the Parish Life Center. If you are delayed, please notify the DRE. Children will wait in the Religious Education Office.

4.) Early dismissals must be accompanied by a written note from a parent/guardian. Parents/guardians are to use the main entrance in the courtyard and ring the bell for admittance to the Parish Life Center. Students needing to leave early must meet their parents/guardians at the Religious Education Office or in the classroom if pre-arranged with the catechist.

All families walking between the church and the Parish Life Center for PREP and Confirmation classes should exercise caution while walking through the parking lot and on the grounds.

Your cooperation is essential to ensure the safety of our children! Thank you!
