New Family Pick Up Procedures Beginning Jan. 3


As you may be aware, we have a large number of families who choose to pick up their children at the end of every school day. Starting January 3, 2017, we are changing our Family pick up location to the lunchroom.  Please read and review the following procedure with your child to ensure a safe and smooth transition for all students. Thank you! 

  • Students who are picked up by a parent/guardian or alternate adult will be picked up in the lunchroom between 4:05 and 4:15 PM each day.
  • Families will enter Pratt Community School at Door 2 (on the parking lot side of the building).  Door 2 will be opened by 4:00 PM to allow parents to wait in the stairway outside of the lunchroom.
  • Families, please form a line on the right hand side of the staircase.
  • Students will be divided into color group. This will allow families with more than one child to pick up all of their children in one group.
  • Students will be asked to sit with their color group even if they see their families at the lunchroom doors. This will support a smooth transition for all students.
  • There will be staff members assisting students and families.  
  • Families who would like to socialize after-school are invited to go outside on the playground or outside of Door 2. This will allow after-school programs to start as soon as possible.

We greatly appreciate your help to make our Family Pick-up a safe and smooth process.
