Revised Dismissal Plan - August 23rd, 2021
Thank you for your patience today. I understand that today’s dismissal was unusually long. Below are some of the changes we are making to improve dismissal speed.
We observed that our original plan had lots of room for communication disconnect, which led to major delays. Our revised plan focuses on streamlining communication/student name announcement.
We will communicate this revised dismissal plan with the students over the morning announcement. Please ask your child to pay close attention to tomorrow’s morning announcement.
Thank you all,
