Arrival and Dismissal
For your child's safety, please note that if your child arrives at Memorial School before 8:30 A.M. there is no adult supervision. This does not apply if your child is in the before-care program.

Pre-Kindergarten students:

  • A.M. pre-kindergarten children should line up outside the entrance to the Early Childhood Learning Center by 8:35 A.M. for the morning session. Parents and/or caregivers must wait with PK students until the teacher and/or teaching assistant arrives to pick up the students for the day.
  • On inclement days, a sign will be posted to bring the children into the classrooms starting at 8:30 A.M.
  • The PM pre-kindergarten children should line up outside the entrance to the Early Childhood Learning Center by 12:25 P.M. for the afternoon session. Parents and/or caregivers must wait with PK students until the teacher and/or teaching assistant arrives to pick up the students for the day. On inclement days, a sign will be posted to bring the children into the learning cottages.
  • Dismissal will be the same for both pre-kindergarten sessions, through the front doors facing the parking lot. For your child's safety and security, the teachers will not release the child to anyone except the parent or someone duly designated (in writing) by the parent.
  • Parents must NOT enter the parking lot to park and drop off children. The parking lot is for staff use.

Kindergarten through Second Grade Students:

  • All kindergarten through second grade students will line up inside of Memorial School and sit in their appropriate grade level section and class line. Class lines will be labeled during the first week of school to direct students to the correct location. Students arriving by bus will be escorted to their class lines by the bus duty supervisor. Students are to wait in their line and have a quiet conversation with their peers around them - this is not a time for recess.
  • Through the Genesis Parent Portal, Memorial parents will be required to complete a dismissal form. This form will indicate the mode by which each parent wishes their child to be dismissed on a regular basis. Students will be dismissed according to this form unless otherwise indicated in writing by the parent. If a parent is delayed at dismissal time, the teacher will escort the child to the office. Please notify the school office if you will be delayed. We require a note to the teacher regarding a change in dismissal plans for the day or in case you have to pick your child up early. Please do not email changes in dismissal. Emailing the teacher directly does not allow for confirmation in a change in dismissal.
  • Children needing early dismissal must be picked up in the main office.
