Dismissal Times Update

Your patience during drop off and pick up our first week was amazing!! At pick up time we have noticed the line of cars is backing up onto the street so we are implementing the following dismissal schedule to be sure all our families are as safe as possible.

  • Dismissal of PreK 4, Young 5’s & Kindergarten will start at 3:00pm.
  • Dismissal for grades 1 and 2 will start at 3:10pm.
  • Dismissal for grades 3, 4 & 5 will start at 3:20pm.

If you have children in more than one of the dismissal groups you can pick which one works best for you and they all will be dismissed together.

Hopefully, this will alleviate a potential accident on the road. Thank you for your cooperation as we work through these new routines.

The Defiance Fire Department was impresses with how quickly, organized and quiet all the students exited the building,  especially our Kindergarten and Young 5’s Students on their first day of school!
