Benson West Dismissal Procedures
We would like to take a minute to remind those parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends who pick up students after school to review the dismissal procedures listed below. Please remember that these procedures help to ensure the safe release of all Benson West students.
We are pleading to all those entrusted to pick up students to adhere to the dismissal procedures. Our children need everyone’s help, support, and patience to make dismissal as safe as it can be.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation!
Benson West Staff
-Parents, siblings, grandparents, or friends that are picking up students at dismissal are to enter the upper driveway leading to the school’s main entrance. Upon entering the drive, please remain in the right-hand lane until your child/children have been safely loaded. A staff member will be posted at the top of the upper drive and might signal for cars to pass as space becomes available towards the bottom of the drive.
-When available, use the left-hand lane to safely exit the upper drive. A staff member will always be posted at the exit of the upper drive. Please be patient and wait for the staff member’s signal to exit.
-In order to avoid unnecessary delays, please limit conversations with staff members at this time.
-Please remain in your vehicle at all times. When necessary, staff members will help to load our students into vehicles.
-In the event of extremely rainy, snowy or cold days students will be held in the school’s main entryway and dismissed out the front doors as vehicles arrive.
-In the event that the upper drive is covered with ice and deemed to dangerous to use for dismissal, students will be dismissed at the lower drive near the school’s flagpole.
