Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

Morning Arrival Procedures


http://res.troup.k12.ga.us/images/bus.gifCar Riders:
Students who arrive by car will be greeted by school personnel behind the cafeteria. Parents are asked to enter the car rider line from behind the school using Rosemont Road. Parents are asked NOT to turn left off the small side road located next to the school and try to cross traffic to enter the car rider line. This is considered a safety issue as well as a fairness issue with our families. Staff and safety patrol members will open car doors and assist students into the cafeteria. Car riders must be dropped off behind the cafeteria between 7:15 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. Students will wait in the cafeteria until dismissal to classrooms at 7:25 a.m. Breakfast is served in classrooms from 7:25 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. The morning broadcast will take place at 7:40 a.m. with class beginning at 7:45 a.m. A student will be considered tardy if he/she arrives after 7:45 a.m. The car rider door will be locked at this time; therefore, parents who arrive after 7:45 a.m. must drive their children around to the front of the school and have their child report to the front office. A child who is tardy must obtain a tardy slip from the front office before entering class. 

Bus Riders:
Buses will arrive at Rosemont from 7:15 a.m. - 7:35 a.m. in the front of the building. Staff members will be present to supervise students as they proceed into the cafeteria. Students will remain in the cafeteria until dismissal to classrooms at 7:25 a.m. Breakfast is served in classrooms from 7:25 a.m. - 7:45 a.m. The morning broadcast will take place at 7:40 a.m. with class beginning at 7:45 a.m.

**We ask parents to please refrain from parking or dropping students off in the front drive of the school between 7:00 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. due to buses unloading at this time. 

 

Afternoon Dismissal Procedures

Car Riders:
Teachers will walk car riders to the cafeteria for dismissal at 2:20 p.m. In order to facilitate dismissal and to reduce traffic back up, we ask that parents arrive behind the cafeteria between 2:20 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to pick up students. Cars that arrive earlier than 2:20 p.m. may cause a traffic problem. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Car riders will wait in the cafeteria until their car arrives at the walkway. It is essential that the 2014-2015 RES Hang Tags be visible to school personnel. This is for the safety of ALL our car riders. We ask that all car riders be picked up no later than 2:50 p.m. Any car rider not picked up by 3:00 p.m. will be sent to ACE and a $7.00 charge will be assessed. 

Bus Riders:
Bus riders will be walked to their assigned bus by their teacher between 2:20 p.m. and 2:25 p.m. Please note: Sometimes, but not often, it is necessary for school personnel to take a child off of the bus due to misbehavior. We will not allow students to ride home on the bus if his/her behavior threatens the safety of the bus. If a child is taken off the bus due to misbehavior, parents will be notified as soon as possible. Also, if we are ever in doubt about how your child is to go home, then we will keep your child at school to insure his or her safety. We ask parents to please refrain from parking in the front drive between 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. due to buses arriving/loading at this time.

ACE:
Students who attend ACE will be dismissed to the gym at 2:15 p.m. ACE must be pre-paid ($7.00 per day for one child and $5.00 for each additional child in the same family). Students who are not picked up by 3:00 p.m. will be sent to ACE and the parent will be responsible for paying a $7.00 fee.

**We ask parents to please refrain from parking in the front drive between 1:45 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. due to buses arriving/loading at this time.
