Daily Dismissal Procedures
School of Grammar End-of-Day Dismissal:
At the end of the school day at 3:30pm, all students will be dismissed to their appropriate method of transportation. Students utilizing busing will exit to the buses, with Prima students being escorted by school staff. Prima-4G students who are parent/guardian pick-up will be brought outside to the blacktop area of the Quad where they will meet their families.
To keep all of our students safe, and to ensure that teachers can confirm the identity of the adults picking up the children, we ask that parents wait to collect their children until the teachers have finished escorting students to the blacktop. We appreciate your patience and thank you for helping to keep our scholars safe and secure!
In the event of rain, parents should pick their children up in the main entrance of the School of Grammar. Staff members will direct you to where your child’s pick-up area is located in the building.
School of Logic & School of Rhetoric End-of-Day Dismissal:
At the end of the school day at 3:30pm, all students will be dismissed to their appropriate method of transportation. Students utilizing busing will exit to the buses and students utilizing parent/guardian pick-up will exit through the Quad to the parking lot. If SOL/SOR scholars have a sibling in the SOG, they may pick them up outside in the Quad.
