AS IMPLEMENTED OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE PERIMETER GATES OF THE SCHOOL WILL REMAIN LOCKED AND/OR MANNED BY SBBC PERSONNEL WHEN SCHOOL/AFTER CARE IS IN SESSION. WHEN THE GATES ARE LOCKED, VISITORS TO THE CAMPUS MUST CALL THE SCHOOL'S OFFICE TO GAIN ENTRY TO THE CAMPUS.
This mandate requires a certain level of security to our perimeter fencing. ALL traffic will enter and exit the school via the 70th Avenue entrance of the school. This includes both morning and afternoon traffic. The entrance by the school cafeteria is designated for EMPLOYEE PARKING only. The east side of the school (68th Avenue) is for BUSES AND EMPLOYEE PARKING only.
The perimeter fence in the front of the school (70th Avenue) will be fully opened from 8:00AM to 9:00AM and then again from 2:30PM to 3:30PM. Outside of these window of times, you will need to call the front office (754-322-8750) to request for someone to open the gate. As such, please plan ahead as any requests for scholars to be released early will require additional time. Additionally, it is important that your scholars are in school on time daily. Any scholars arriving AFTER 9:00AM will require that the parent comes INSIDE to sign them to school!!
Please know and understand that we remain committed to the safety and security of our school community. Your patience, cooperation, and flexibility is requested as we continue with our increased security process.
There is no supervision on campus prior to 8:00AM. The perimeter gates to the school will be closed until that time. At 8:00AM, the gates will be opened for student access. Please keep traffic moving by staying in your cars and not parking in the fire lane. If you need to attend a conference or come in to the front office at any time, please use one of the designated parking spots in the front of the school. Additionally, please be respectful of our neighbors and do not park in their driveways or block the city roads.
Walkers will be able to exit the school via the walker gate on 70th Avenue ONLY. As in the past, our Kindergarten and 1st Grade walkers will be at the gate by the marquee on 70th Avenue. This is where you can go to pick them up. They will be there with a teacher who will wait for someone to come pick them up. Students not picked up by 3:20PM will be walked to the front office side of the school and you will have to drive in to get them or walk to that side.
All other walkers will be dismissed on their own from the 70th Avenue exit. Please make sure that your scholar knows where to go and what to do. Due to the high volume of traffic and for safety reasons, all scholars must go directly home and not linger around. There is NO supervision on campus after 3:40PM.
All car rider dismissal will take place in the front of the school off 70th Avenue. There will be designated locations for all grade levels. Scholars who have younger siblings are to go to the designated area on the far WEST side with their younger sibling. Please follow these instructions below:
HAVE YOUR CAR DISMISSAL TAG DISPLAYED AT ALL TIMES! Put your car dismissal tag on your rearview mirror under the visor on the PASSENGER side so that staff can see the names. You can pick this up at the Meet & Greet or on the first day of school.
PLEASE PULL ALL THE WAY FORWARD--DO NOT STOP AND BLOCK THE CAR LINE. We will direct your child to you. It is easier to pull as many cars forward and fill those cars than to load one car at time.
STAY IN THE FAR RIGHT LANE! Scholars will NOT be allowed to enter cars in the left lane. If you have to pull forward to a grade level, REMAIN IN THE RIGHT LANE. Do not try to go around. You will be directed to leave the parking lot if you stop your car or stop in the wrong spot.
DO NOT PARK YOUR CAR AND GET OUT. You must remain with your vehicle at all times. You may not get out of the car to look for your child. You will be directed on where to stop and wait for your child to come to you.
DO NOT DESIGNATE YOUR CHILD A CAR RIDER AND THEN WALK UP TO GET THEM. You will NOT be serviced as this will interfere with the processes and procedures of the car loop. If your child is listed as a car rider, you MUST remain in your car. If you wish to walk up to get your child, please list them as a car rider. ALL kindergarten and 1st grade scholars will held until the parent or an older sibling comes to get them from the WALKER area.
DRIVE SLOWLY AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTION OF SCHOOL PERSONNEL. Your patience is appreciated with this new traffic pattern. Please follow the direction of school personnel and demonstrate respect and courtesy for your fellow citizens.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS WITH SCHOOL PERSONNEL DURING DISMISSAL. Dismissal time is a very serious time and a moment where a child can easily be misplaced. You are asked not to attempt to engage in long conversations with Administration or any teachers/personnel during this time. We are are required to stay vigilant and watchful to ensure that all of our scholars are safely dismissed.
In order for your child to be dismissed on a bus, they MUST be on the bus list for that bus. All scholars on a SBBC bus will have a bus pass to ride the bus. If the scholar is to go home on a private after care provider (Boys and Girls Club, New Society, etc.), that agency MUST provide a list with your child's name on it. If their name is NOT on the list, they will NOT be able to ride that bus. It is imperative that you make sure the private provider has your child on their list.
A student cannot be taken off the bus for a change of dismissal without proof of the change in writing from the parent.
Transportation information is currently online for your scholar on Virtual Counselor. You can check your child's pick up and drop off time, bus stop location, and route number there. For directions on how to find this out, CLICK HERE!
ALL CHANGES IN DISMISSAL MUST BE IN WRITING!!!
Please use this form.
We will NOT take any changes of dismissal over the phone at any time for any reason!! You MAY submit a change of dismissal by completing a Change of Dismissal form and sending to the Front Office or your child's teacher that morning.
No changes of dismissal will be accepted after 12 noon.
Students shall not be released within the final 30 minutes of the school day unless the principal/designee determines that it is an emergency or the student has a medical/dental appointment that cannot be reasonably scheduled at another time.
