School hours are from 8:45 AM to 3:30 PM. Students who arrive AFTER 9:00 AM will be marked Absent/Tardy for the day. The learning day ends at 3:15 PM.
Students are not to be dropped off before 8:30AM as there is no adult supervision. Students who are walking, biking, rollerblading or skateboarding should arrive at school no earlier than 8:30AM. This must be adhered to for safety purposes.
Buses start loading at 3:15 PM, leaving SES at approximately 3:30 PM.
CHANGES IN BUS TRANSPORTATION
Due to an increased number of students on each bus, requests for transportation other than to a designated child-care provider or home must be submitted in writing in advance. If you are requesting a change in your child’s dismissal/transportation, a note is to be sent to school with your child containing all pertinent information. The change will be logged and your child will receive a bus pass.
** NOTE: Any Changes to your child’s dismissal schedule must be made in WRITING prior to 11:00AM. You may email the office staff at SES@springvillegi.org OR Fax Number 592-3264.
** Changes after 11:00AM will not be accepted due to the difficulty of informing all necessary parties with such short notice.
PICK-UP AT DISMISSAL
Children who are consistently picked up and children who bring a note indicating they will be picked up rather than ride the bus will go directly to the gym to be dismissed to the designated adult. Dismissal begins at 3:15 PM.
In order to provide a safe dismissal environment, parents/guardians are asked to park at the Middle School lot and walk on the sidewalk nearest to the Elementary School and enter the 3rd/4th grade entrance by the basketball court. The doorway will be opened by a member of our SES Staff at 3:00PM. Then, the parent/guardian will need to sign out his/her child(ren). Parents/Guardians must remain in the designated area until their child is dismissed and then may exit the building through the 3rd/4th grade exit. This procedure is for the safety and welfare of our Springville Elementary students.
EARLY DISMISSAL REQUESTS
Occasionally parents/guardians may request to have their child excused before regular dismissal time (i.e. emergency, doctor’s appointment, etc) at 3:15PM. A note should be sent to school with your child in the morning. This note will be sent to the Main Office and the change will be logged. Parents/Guardians picking up their child(ren) before 3:00PM, must come to the Main Office to sign their child(ren) out.
Please note that your child’s learning day ends at 3:15 PM.
