Student Transportation Changes
It is important for us to know (and for your child to know) how students will be transported to and from school. We realize transportation may be different the first few days. Please put this in writing so your child’s teacher will know. This will eliminate confusion, not only for our staff, but for your child.
During the school year, if there will be any change to the method of afternoon transportation, we must be notified in writing of this change. You must notify us in one of the following four ways; send in a written note, come in, send a fax or email our registrar, Scarlett Maples, at firstname.lastname@example.org or in case of extreme emergency you may call (256) 851-4700.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU GET A RESPONSE - NO MATTER WHICH WAY YOU CHOOSE TO NOTIFY US. If you don’t get a response your child will be sent home their regular way.
Morning Arrival and Afternoon Dismissal Policies
Car riders can be dropped off using the south driveway (on the right when looking at the front of the school) beginning at 7:15 AM. Staff members will not be on duty until that time.
The doors will be opened at 7:15 AM. Students will either go to breakfast, first period class, library, or computer lab under the supervision of a staff member. They will be dismissed to their classrooms at 7:40 AM. Class begins at 7:45 AM.
If a student arrives after 7:45 AM, there will not be a staff member on duty. Therefore, the family must escort the student to the main lobby in order to sign them in for the day. For security purposes, the outer doors will lock after the 7:45 AM bell.
