    DISMISSAL PROCEDURES at Frankstown Elementary

    Gym Walk-Up Dismissal (for families that pickup their student every day and have already signed up in the office; if you would like more information, please contact the office 695-4961 ext. 5500)

    Will begin on the first day of school.
    You must remain in your car until 3:05 PM.
    At 3:10 PM, adults picking up students are to line up on the sidewalk underneath the gym overhang to the gym doors. There will be no need to enter the school.
    You are not permitted to park along the main driveway, in front of the school, or in the YMCA lot.
    When you get to the gym door, please present your placard to pick up your student(s). Students WILL NOT be released unless a placard is presented. This is for the safety of the students as, at any given time, there may be a substitute or a staff member on duty that is not familiar with you.
    Once the staff member sees your placard, he or she will dismiss your student(s) to you.


    Permanent Pickup:

    Will begin on the first day of school.
    Parents/guardians must form two lines in the parking lot near the Kindergarten entrance.
    Once the vans have left, you will be permitted to move forward to pick up your child.
    Students enrolled in the Permanent Pickup program will be called at the end of the announcements each day.
    Students will then report directly to the LGI.
    When all students are present, the children will be walked out to the front of the school building to the parent/guardian's vehicles.
    We would ask that you please recycle your car sign.
    Parking along the sidewalk will not be permitted; failure to park where instructed will result in loss of permanent pick-up services.


    Front Door Pickup:

    If you are not part of either the Gym Walk-Up or Permanent Pickup dismissal programs but still need to pick up your child at the end of the day, then you will need to do the following:

    Will begin on the first day of school.
    Arrive no later than 3:05 PM.
    Locate the clipboard placed in vestibule.
    Write your name and the student(s) name you are picking up.
    Please do not ring the buzzer, as a staff member will get the clipboard by 3:09.
    Please wait outside, not in the vestibule, until your student(s) is released (a staff member will walk the students out to you to ensure students go with the correct adult).


    Please note:

    You are not permitted to park along the driveway, in front of the school, or in the YMCA lot.


    Dismissal at any other time throughout the day requires use of Lobby Guard, which requires a driver's license.


    Anyone else entering the building for other reasons, will be required to use the Lobby Guard system, which requires a driver’s license.
