In order to ensure the well-being of our students and so that the teacher and the office are aware of changes, all changes to transportation or dismissal must be put in writing on the Byrd pink “Note to Office.”
Dismissal prior to the 3:10 P.M. release time requires that the parent come to the office and sign the early dismissal log. If an early dismissal is required for an appointment, the child will be called from the classroom.
For normal parent pick up, students will be sent to the car rider lane.
If there is any change in transportation or if someone other than the parent will pick up the child, the parent or guardian must put that request in writing (preferably on the pink “Note to office”). Without a written note, the school will dismiss your child using his/her “usual” plan.
If you need to change your child’s transportation after your child is already in school for the day, you must contact the office before 2:00 to ensure your child will receive the information about dismissal changes. We still require that you put this change in writing whether it be a note to the office or fax (804-457-9303).
Due to dismissal procedures, please do not come into the office for dismissal after 3:00 p.m. After this time, there will be no early dismissal from the office unless there is a medical appointment or family emergency. If you are picking up your child daily, please utilize the car pick up area. A mirror card can be provided to you.
Only the child’s legal parent or guardian may pick up the student unless there is note in writing from the parent or guardian. Please remember that anyone picking up your child must have a photo id.
