We have MANY students who are not getting picked up from school in a timely fashion. Although we understand that “life happens” we must offer some guidelines for this repeated situation that we find ourselves in. 10 or 20 students, almost daily, are hanging in the front office; middle school students are out front, sometimes for an hour or more. We will begin to charge for students who remain at school past the half-hour mark, $1.00/minute. Families must be responsible for picking students up, or make arrangements with the RGEC organization providing after-school care until 6:00 p.m. or the local community center. We cannot babysit! We thank you for your attention and understanding regarding this matter.
