Afternoon Car Dismissal

Afternoon Dismissal Procedures
Posted on 08/05/2018

 It is best, if at all possible, to have one consistent way that your child goes home each day; however, if you need to change your child’s way of going home (for a day or permanently), the request MUST be made in writing. If the student does not bring a note and verification cannot be made, the student will be sent home his/her regular way. Calls to change a students’ transportation will no longer be accepted (except in cases of emergency).

Early Dismissal: If you need to dismiss your child early from school due to a doctor’s appointment or other scheduled appointment, please do so before 3:15 pm. Any students missing over half of the school day will be counted absent for the day. This means if a student leaves school before 12:15 pm or arrives at school after 12:15 pm, he or she will be marked absent for that date. Parents, guardians, or designees must sign for the student at the admissions office before he/she can be dismissed. NO students, for their safety, will be dismissed from the classroom teacher without being signed out first in the office. No early dismissals after 3:15 pm.

Students being picked up in an automobile must be picked up through the car line. Every car rider will be given a dismissal card for identification. This card is to be displayed in the car window with the student’s name facing the passenger side so it can easily be read by staff. If you need additional cards, they are available in the admissions office. Students will NOT be dismissed to a car without a Rivermont dismissal card. Cars that do not have the card visible will be asked to park in the parking lot (not the car rider line). You must go into the office and show proper identification to dismiss the child.

The City of Chattanooga will not allow cars to park on Carter drive. The City has notified us that all cars are to enter Carter Drive and go up the street and come back down in order to enter on the correct side of the street. Cars that are parked on the incorrect side of the street are subject to be ticketed.
