Oak Campus

END-OF-DAY PARENT PICK-UP
3:30 pm – Classes are dismissed. Students who use bus transportation are sent to buses on 69th street (North side of campus) or students are excused to the Upper Room after-school program. Walkers will be dismissed out of the NW door (must have signed the permission slip). All students K-5 will receive a “car rider number”. We will dismiss in order of cars arriving in the circle drive. Numbers will be called into the doubled up classrooms and students will be organized into a list of 6-8 cars in the hallway and then brought outside by a staff member to put kids in the car. Every child will have a number. We no longer will be using the same number you had a Cherry. It becomes duplicated and confusing for our callers. Our “numbers” will be on green paper. Please go to the Oak office to pick up your car rider number. 
3:45 pm* – Remaining students are brought to the office. *Every minute after 3:45 pm, a $1 charge is incurred. 

BUILDING ENTRANCE DOOR WILL REMAIN LOCKED AT ALL TIMES (as well as all other doors to the building). During the school day, the door will remain locked and all who enter will be buzzed into the building.
