ARRIVAL AT SCHOOL
Students may begin drop off at 8:55 a.m. Monday through Friday on normal school days. The school day begins at 9:00 a.m.
Preschool staff members will meet you and your child between 8:55-9:00 a.m. outside at the designated doors (to the left of the main office). Students will be brought into the building and into the classroom by program staff.
Students receiving bus/van transportation will be taken off the vehicle by staff members and brought to the classroom. As a reminder, drivers are not permitted to get out of the vehicle or assist with getting a child in or out of the car seat.
In the event that a student arrives after 9:00 a.m., please accompany your child into the building and sign him/her in at the main office. The secretary will notify the teacher in the classroom and a staff member will meet your child in the main office.
Under no circumstances may a student leave the school or school grounds during school hours without permission from his/her parents or guardians. At the start of each school year, parents are asked to complete a Dismissal Form. Please complete this form each fall and ensure it’s returned to the office. The school will not deviate from this plan unless written permission is given from the parent. All students will need to be signed out by a parent or legal guardian to be picked up and dismissed from the Avon Early Learning Center at Roaring Brook School.
If someone other than a parent/guardian picks up the student, the person appearing in the school office should bring a note of identification from the parent or guardian as well as a valid form of identification. The school reserves the right to ask for identification at any time.
DELAYED SCHOOL OPENINGS
There may be occasions during the school year when, because of inclement weather, it will be necessary to delay the opening of school by 2 hours. In that event, children may be dropped off beginning at 10:55 a.m. and the school day will officially begin at 11:00 a.m. In the event of a delayed opening, the AM session will be cancelled.
In the event school is closed because of bad weather or another emergency, announcements will be made. Information regarding school cancellation will be delivered automatically to parents through our automated messaging service. This service relies on the accuracy of the information provided by the parent at the time of their child’s enrollment. This information can be updated. For assistance, contact the school’s secretary who can assist you with this process.
School closing information is also shared through local radio, television, or by accessing the school’s website. Please do not call the radio stations, police, schools or the superintendent.
DISMISSAL (THE SCHOOL DAY ENDS AT 11:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.)
Students will be dismissed from the designated doors by program staff where they will be united with their parents. Anyone picking up students at dismissal time (11:30 a.m. or 3:00 p.m.) should not park in the bus lanes or the student drop off area at the front of the school. Parking areas should be used when picking up a child at dismissal time.
Students who utilize bus/van transportation will be dismissed from the designated doors and brought to their assigned bus/van. Students will be properly secured in their appropriate car seats by school staff. As a reminder, drivers are not supposed to get out of the vehicle or assist you with getting your child in or out of the car seat.
Please do not ask to have your child dismissed early from class unless it is absolutely necessary. If your child must be dismissed early or there is a change to the dismissal routine, please send a note to the teacher with your child rather than having the office interrupt the class with a phone call.
Thank you for your help in making the dismissal of all children at the end of the day smooth, orderly, and safe.
SCHEDULED EARLY DISMISSAL
Several afternoons during the school year have been set aside for conferences. Please take advantage of these days to schedule doctor and dental appointments or other commitments which might otherwise take your child out of school. The dates of such events are outlined on the attached school calendar. Lunch will be served on the scheduled early dismissal days. In the event of an early dismissal, the PM session will be cancelled.
Late-forming storms could require early dismissal for all schools. Other unforeseen circumstances could cause one or more schools to be dismissed early. In the event school will be closing early because of bad weather or another emergency, announcements will be made. Information regarding emergency early dismissals will be delivered automatically to parents through our automated messaging service (see above) and is also available through local radio, television, or by accessing the school’s website. All students are dismissed according to their plan on the Dismissal Form. Any changes to this plan must be in writing from the parent/guardian. Lunch will not be served on emergency early dismissal days. In the event of an early dismissal, the PM session will be cancelled.
