RVES Updates

    Early Pick Up Policy
    EARLY PICK-UP POLICY - Goes into effect 9/1/18
    If you need to pick up your RVES student early for a medical appointment or other reason, please be aware that we do not allow early student check-outs after 3:15 p.m. Our dismissal time is 3:30 p.m. So during the 15 minute window from 3:15-3:30 we do not allow early check-outs. This policy is important for holding safety, security, and classroom best practices as our top priorities. The policy helps in this way:
    - The last 15 minutes of the day is an important time in classrooms. Teachers are reflecting on the day with their students, helping them pack up the correct items, clarifying homework, and launching them off for the evening through our Capturing Kids' Hearts strategies.
    -Minimizing student movement the last 15 minutes of the day provides the safest and most secure dismissal environment possible for our students. At dismissal, we need our safe entry (front area of school entry) clear of parents and visitors so that we can cross our bus riders through the safe entry to the appropriate area. We also have classes exiting out the front doors starting at 3:30.
    -If families do have an appointment to get to, picking up after 3:15 is not helpful because our parking lot is not accessible at that time. Cars are not moving. You will be stuck!
    Please visit our Family Handbook:
