Dismissal Procedures For Buses/Car Pick-Up/Walkers
Students who walk home will follow behind the teacher’s line of bus riders. The teacher will dismiss the walkers to walk to the front office when the bus riders have been loaded. The walkers will be dismissed to walk across highway 121 under the supervision of staff members and the crossing guard at approximately 2:40 p.m.
BUS RIDERS: Dismissal from Lake Butler Elementary School will begin at 2:30 p.m. when all teachers escort their students to the bus ramp area. Buses will pull in and park at 2:25 p.m. Once the buses have parked, teachers will walk their students down the bus ramp and have them load the appropriate bus. After all buses are loaded, buses will exit the bus ramp at 2:45 p.m. in order to be parked for loading Lake Butler Middle School and Union County High School students at 2:50 p.m.
CAR PICK-UPS: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade students
Cars will enter the bus ramp area from the gravel driveway off of highway 231. Parents must pull in and park in a single file line in the grassy area so that buses may pull out first. After all buses have exited, parents may pull into the bus ramp area. Parents must pull up to the curb at the appropriate grade level area. The child’s teacher will open the car door and put the child in the car. Parents will then ease over into the line of traffic and exit onto highway 121. Parents are encouraged to move slowly and cautiously through this area. No parents will be allowed to circle into the driveway in front of the cafeteria to pick up students.
Pre-K and Kindergarten Students
Parents of students in pre-k and kindergarten may enter into the driveway at the kindergarten area to pick up your child. Students will be lined up and waiting behind the fence at approximately 2:20 p.m. Parents are asked to remain in your vehicle until a staff member places your child in the vehicle. You may then pull out onto highway 121. Please do not park in the parking lot to walk down to the classroom to pick up your child prior to dismissal time.
Parents are encouraged to proceed slowly and cautiously through this area. We appreciate your patience and cooperation with our procedures. The safety of your children is our primary concern. Please bear in mind that our goal is to dismiss approximately 845 children in a safe and timely manner.
