This page is for parents to view important information and resources offered at Dewey L Carter Elementary School.
Our building opens for students each morning at 7:00am. Students are not to be dropped off before that time as the doors are locked and there is no supervision. All car riders are to be dropped off in the rear of the building between 7:00 and 7:45. Students not in their classroom at 7:45 are tardy, so we encourage you to arrive for the carline before 7:30 each morning.
The front of the school is reserved for staff members, school buses, and parents of our 4K students. To ensure the safety of all our students and staff we ask that you do not drop your child off in the front of the building. If you need to bring your child to the front you will need to park and walk your child to the front door.
Our district has implemented a truancy program, therefore, tardies continue to be a major emphasis for our students and DLC's tardy policy must be followed.
We will use the rear of our building for the carline in both the morning and afternoon.
Morning Drop off: During the morning drop off a single lane of cars will be utilized. The lead car is to pull all the way to the first cone where a staff member will then stop traffic. Once all of the cars have come to a stop, a staff member will motion for all students to exit on the right side of the vehicle (facing the school). After all students are clear and safely out of the drive, staff members will move aside and motion for parents to pull away. Please note - though we want this to be as efficient as possible, our top priority is the safety of our children and staff. Please do not pull away until the adult on duty has seen all children step safely away from traffic and has motioned for you to pull forward. Please always drive safely looking out for others.
Afternoon: Parents and guardians are not to walk up to pick up students. Any parent or adult picking up students will need to have their child’s name-tag in plain view. Students will be escorted to cars by teachers. Students are to sit quietly and listen for their names to be called. Car line will begin at 2:15. All car riders should be picked up no later than 2:45
Early Sign Out
Students may be signed out by a legal guardian before 1:30. Please make every effort to not sign students out after 1:30.
Dismissal Changes- Please be sure to call the office with any dismissal changes before 1:30 each day.
