Our new principal has organized arrival and dismissal time to be safe and orderly by having the students enter through the main entrance only with all non-classroom teachers as hall monitors. Last year the students entered and left by the closest door of the building to their classroom. This streamline of student flow allows for friendly greetings and gentle reminders of proper hallway behavior. The classroom teachers are in the classrooms to greet the students and start the day. For dismissal, the classes are lined up and escorted by the classroom teacher down the main corridor to the main entrance. Again the hall monitors can give reminders of behavior and also friendly wishes for a good weekend or 'see you tomorrow.' The order of class dismissal is according to their proximity to the main door, not by grade level. This organization provides safety and orderliness to the students beginning and ending of each day.
