Rainy Day Dismissal
In the event of Rainy Day Dismissal, all students will be held in the cafetorium until their car ride has arrived. We do not make the determination to hold students until 3:00 p.m. We make every effort NOT to change standard dismissal procedures. Be assured that our primary concern is the safety of our students. If conditions exist that may pose a threat to students' safety, school administrators may need to override family plans. Such conditions include, but are not limited to, lightning, hail, tornadic activity and extreme cold. In these instances, students will be held until the dangerous conditions have passed or parents have picked up their child(ren) from school.
The safest manner of student pick-up during inclement weather is the car rider line. We know it becomes long on these days but we encourage you to use that method. If you choose to come into the building, please enter through the front doors and proceed directly to the cafetorium stage so that the hallways and vestibule are clear for the students to proceed to their grade level lines. Once all the students have gathered in the cafetorium, a staff member will dismiss your student.
Your child needs to be aware of how they will get home each day. Please make sure your child(ren) understand the specific directions you want them to observe. Each family should develop a bad weather plan for dismissal. Please make sure that your family's plan is written on your child's Dismissal Form that was sent home in the first day packets. This form is also available below. Any changes to this form should be given to your child's homeroom teacher in writing. It is important that students, staff, and parents be prepared for all conditions.
We must be certain that children are released only to parents or authorized adults who are listed on the Emergency Form. We appreciate your cooperation with these procedures to ensure the safety of all of our Hidden Hollow students.
