Students being picked up by parents at dismissal will be available in the gymnasium. Each person picking up a student must show a Southside Pick-Up Pass or a temporary pass issued from the office. At dismissal time, all students, accompanied by an adult, must exit promptly through the outside gymnasium doors. Dismissal is not permitted via the front school doors. All students must be picked up by 2:50. Any student who is repeatedly not picked up on time, will need to make arrangements in the future to ride the bus or enroll in ETC. REMINDER: PLEASE DO NOT GO TO YOUR CHILD’S CLASSROOM TO PICK HIM/HER UP. For security reasons, parents who pick up their children any time prior to the 2:45 p.m. dismissal are required to report to the office, show proper identification, and sign out their child on the official sign-out roster. At that time an office secretary will contact your child’s teacher and the student will be directed to the office. Students signed out prior to 2:45 p.m. are required by law to be marked as tardy.
