Foster Heights Huskies
Begin With the End in Mind
Dismissal Procedure Change
As a Husky Parent, we want to synergize with you to provide the best customer service possible this school year, by practicing Habit 2-Begin with End in Mind. School will dismiss promptly at 3:15pm each day, your child has 3 options for dismissal.
Option 1 -Bus Rider, first run buses leave at 3:15 each day, second run buses leave at 3:40. Bus Transportation is convenient and safe for all.
Option 2- After School Childcare-Students have the opportunity to stay after school, they are provided a snack and homework support. There is a cost of $30 a week for 3 days; or $50 a week for 5 days. After school hours are 3-6 PM.
Option 3-Car Rider, to be proactive we are reorganizing our process for car rider pick up. Car Rider line will dismiss promptly at 3:15 at the back of our building, we have increased staff to load 8 students at a time. We will open your passenger side door, help your children into the car and ask that you advance the line again promptly. Your car rider tag must be visible, if you forget your tag, you will need to park and check in at the office after 3:45. Office will be closed from 3:15-3:45 to assist with dismissal.
The process of checking out students through the gym was a safety concern so we are discontinuing this process. We know our line will be long, but if you will review the map below, and follow the pick up procedures and expectations, we feel we can provide the very best customer service possible. We appreciate your patience with us the first few weeks as we get into the routine, and to get everyone used to the new procedures.
Car Rider Tags will be given out at the Back to School Picnic (3 per family).
Car Rider Line Expectations
- Once you are assigned your car rider tag number, please review the number with your children so they know the number.
