PICK-UP FROM SCHOOL
Dismissal is at 3:15 p.m. for Upper and Lower Academy
To protect instructional time, we will not have any student dismissed early from school beyond 3 p.m.
To ensure the safety for all of our students, staff and parents, and to keep traffic flowing, please adhere to the following dismissal procedure. Parents are not allowed to use the Sun Theatre parking lot for pick up.
Pick up locations are determined by the grade level. If your child picked up with students from both Lower and Upper Academy levels, choose a side for pick-up and be sure all in the carpool know what side to use ahead of time. For your planning purposes, the Delmar side typically is less congested.
Pick up locations by Grade Level:
Lower Academy: Students must be picked up on the south side of GCAA, along the Grandel Sidewalk.
Upper Academy: Students must be picked up along north side of GCAA, along the Delmar sidewalk.
With families of students in both the Lower Academy and Upper Academy, some may not wish to pick up students on one side or the other. Parents should have their Lower Academy student wait outside on the Delmar side with their older sibling at dismissal time.
Metered parking is available on Grandel. Please help prevent traffic problems by honoring parking guidelines and by driving at minimum speeds while near school.
