Afternoon Dismissal Procedures
When picking up your child, parents should arrive between the hours of 3:00 PM – 3:15 PM. Cars that arrive earlier than 3:00 PM may cause a traffic problem. Parents need to use Morningside Drive and turn in the first entrance to the school. It is essential that the KES Hang Tag be displayed on the rear view mirror so school personnel can see the tag number. School Personnel will use a radio to have the student with the corresponding number on their book bag prepare for dismissal. Students will exit through the front doors and stand behind the safety patrol students who will escort them to their cars and help them inside.
The teachers will walk bus riders to the bus loading area and put them on their assigned bus between 3:10 PM – 3:15 PM.
Misc. Additional Transportation Information:

- Each family will be issued two free hang tags with the same number. If you lose, misplace, or need a third hang tag, the cost will be $2.50.
- If you are going to pick up your student after school, wait in the office until your student arrives. This helps to reduce the congestion in the cafeteria as students are trying to leave the building.
