Dismissal & Pick-Up  

The safety and security of our students is of paramount importance. Dismissal for the middle and high school is 2:35 p.m. Students are to be picked up at that time. Students who are still present at the school at 3:00 p.m. must be enrolled in the after-school care program, and remain with the ASC supervisor at all times. Registration forms for the After-School Care program are available in the office. Students involved in after-school athletics practice, must be attending practice under the supervision of the coach(es) and arrangements must be made to pick up students at the end of practice. Increasingly, we have students who are spending time, unsupervised,on campus. Many leave the campus to go to Starbucks or for fast food, and then return to the campus. In particular, on Wednesdays,there are students that are present on and around the campus until youth service at 7:00 p.m. These students are unaccounted for and unsupervised, and their safety is not ensured. Please arrange to pick up your student by 2:35 p.m. Commencing Monday, the campus gates will be closed and locked at 3:00 p.m. Any students or parents requiring access to the campus will enter via the office. After-school care students may be picked up via the office until 4:00 p.m. After 4:00 p.m.,there will be a bell by the office door, that will ring and announce your presence to the ASC supervisor. Please do not send your students over the the elementary and church campus. They will be unsupervised there, as well. It is our pleasure and privilege to have your student as part of the Desert Chapel family. We are committed to providing your student with an academic experience characterized by academic, athletic, and spiritual excellence, and we continue to grow in these areas. Equally so, we are committed to the safety of your student, and appreciate your cooperation in this effort.
