Arrival and Dismissal

East Brainerd Elementary school hours are 8:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. The car line runs from 8:15 - 8:40 am and is located in the back of the building. 
If you arrive after 8:40, you will need to park in the back lot and walk your student into the car rider entrance. A staff member will be present to sign your student in and provide a tardy slip. Tardy students may not walk inside alone. 
Students arriving after 8:45 will not be allowed to have breakfast in the cafeteria. 

Pick Up
Student dismissal begins at 3:45. All car riders are held in the gym until their name is called by the teachers on duty. If a student does not hear his/her name, they will be sent to the front office for pick up. You will need to bring your child’s current school-issued car dismissal card with you to receive your child.
Please make sure that your child’s current, school-issued car dismissal card is displayed in your window so your child’s name can be called and they are prepared to be dismissed to you when safe.
We appreciate your following the directions and instructions of the teachers and staff on duty for both arrival and dismissal.  Each afternoon we dismiss approximately 600 or more students from our building to cars. It is of the utmost importance that our students are safe during their loading of cars.  Please turn down your radios and do not use your cell phones while in the car line.
If there is a change in the way your child is to go home in the afternoon, a note must be received by the teacher or the office no later than the morning of the change of transport.   Do not call the teacher or send a text message during the school day on the date of the change as the teacher will be busy with his or her instructional duties. When a change involves new bus transportation, a transportation slip must be completed and accompany the student to the bus.  Please send a note or come into the office to ensure that your child is taken to the correct stop.
No phone-in transportation changes will be taken. You must send a note or come by the school to make transportation changes. This should be reserved for emergency changes in how a child is to go home.
Without a note from a parent/guardian your child will go home on their regular transportation.
At 4:15, students remaining at the car line will be brought to the office (unless they are registered for SACC) and phone calls will be made to parents and guardians.  A record of late pick-ups is kept and will be addressed on an individual basis if this becomes a habit.
