IMPORTANT DISMISSAL INFORMATION

Charles E. Walters School

15 Everett Drive

Yaphank, N.Y. 11980

Student Pick Up

The school day ends at 3:25 p.m.  In order to maximize instruction, we ask that parents make every effort to schedule appointments and extra curricular activities at the conclusion of the school day.  Prior to 3:00 p.m. parents may go to the main entrance of the Intermediate Center and the Primary Center to pick up their child. You will be asked to remain outside to sign your child out of school in the 20-21 school year due to social distancing restrictions. Your child will be sent or escorted to the entrance of the building to meet you.  If you wish to have your child picked up by someone else, please include that individual’s name on the sign-out card. Photo ID will have to be presented every time anyone picks up a student from the building.


Pick Up Procedures After 3:00 p.m.

1.                   Please do not walk to the sidewalk or buses during dismissal to take your child home.  If you need to pick up your child, please come to the main entrance of the building to sign them out.


2.                   If you will be picking up children in both the Primary and Intermediate Centers, proceed to the Primary Center first.  Let the secretary know that you will be picking up students in the Intermediate Center also.  Those children will be sent to the Intermediate Center cafeteria at 3:20 to await your arrival.


3.                   If you know in advance that you will be signing your child out, send a note to the classroom teacher, call the main office or send an email informing staff that a student will be picked-up prior to 2:15 p.m.  Parent notes may be for multiple days.  Once your note has been received, your child will be sent to the gymnasium of the Primary Center or the Intermediate Center cafeteria at 3:20 p.m.


4.                   At 3:00 p.m. parents can begin to line up on the green lines located on the sidewalk of the side of the Primary Center near the Right at School entrance. Parents of students in the Intermediate Center can begin to line up at 3:00 on the green lines located on the south side of the sidewalk at the Everett Drive Entrance. Please wear a mask and stand on the lines that are 6 feet apart from others. The children will be sent or escorted to those areas at 3:20 p.m. After you are asked to come to the doors to sign your child out you will be asked to wait on the north side of the exit doors until your child comes out. The same procedure will occur at the Primary Center Right at School Entrance. Parents will not be able to sign their children out without identification. 


5.                   When you arrive to sign your child out, if there is no prior contact to the building, a school monitor will call your child’s classroom to notify the teacher to send the child down to sign-outs at dismissal time (3:20 p.m.).  Please wait on the line outside the Right at School entrance or the line outside the Everett Drive entrance.  


6.                   Here at Charles E. Walters, dismissal begins at 3:25.  Once this process begins, pulling students from the bus delays the timely dismissal of all students.  Consequently, when parents arrive at the school after 3:30 p.m. with no prior notification and no knowledge of their child’s bus route number, they may be asked to wait until their child is located.  If the buses have been loaded and are in the process of departing from the school, parents will be asked to go directly to their child’s bus stop to pick them up.


7.                Please refrain from parking in any designated handicapped parking spots unless you have the appropriate parking permit that must be visibly hanging from your rear view mirror.


Parking

To facilitate the safe dismissal of students from 3:15-3:45 p.m., cars will not be permitted to park in parking lot in front of the Intermediate Center.

The circle in front of the Primary Center is a bus and emergency access lane; therefore, “No Parking” will be permitted in that area at any time.
