Updated Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

January 17, 2018

Dear Harrison Parents:

In order to better serve all families and ensure student confidentiality, there are three updated
procedures that will take effect January 22, 2018. The three procedures, outlined below, are
necessary to preserve instructional time and protect our students during arrival and dismissal.

During morning arrival, 8:30am – 9:00am, we ask that parents utilize parent loop to drop off
students. If necessary, parents may walk their children into the front lobby; however, to protect
instructional time and ensure student confidentiality, parents will no longer be permitted to freely
visit classrooms between 8:30 and 9:00am. If a parent meeting is desired, parents must make an
appointment with the teacher. Please be reminded all visitors must secure a visitor’s badge from
the main office prior to visiting classrooms for scheduled meetings.

In reference to afternoon dismissal procedures, please be advised of the two following updates. If
there is a change in your child’s afternoon transportation plan (i.e. parent loop instead of the bus,
bus instead of parent loop), we ask that parents contact the office prior to 3:00pm. This will give
the office staff sufficient time to notify your child’s teacher of the change. In addition, to ensure
we are able to serve all families, students will no longer be called to the office for dismissal after
3:15pm. All parents who arrive after 3:15 are asked to wait in the parent loop line for their children
to be dismissed at 3:30.

We appreciate your partnership and understanding as we work to update procedures that preserve
meaningful instructional time and enhance student safety. If you should have questions please feel
free to contact the main office.
