Early Dismissal- December 3rd

Good Morning Parents!

This message is URGENT! As many of you know President Bush’s funeral procession will close a number of roads today across the metropolitan area on Monday and Wednesday as the late president’s body is brought to the capital rotunda, where his body will lay in state for 3 days.

All 3 access roads to our school to include Allentown Road, Suitland Road and the Joint Andrews Base roads will be closed starting at approximately 2:45pm which is beginning of our dismissal. There is no way to determine how long the roads will stay closed.

Parents, guardians are vans are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to do an EARLY DISMISSAL TODAY for their scholars. The county provided an early dismissal for our sister campus Imagine Andrews, who has the same access roads but did not provide the same for our school. In the past, when this occurred with the Pop we had a 2-early dismissal.

Please make plans to pick up your scholar early today to avoid major issues. As a reminder, I have to release teachers and all staff persons from their duties at 3:30pm. If you are not here by 3:30pmto pick your scholar, then your scholar will be sent to Springboard at the drop-in rate of $47. Springboard scholars must be picked up by 6:30pm.

I apologize for the urgency of this message and the short time to make arrangements. I found out about the closures at 8:15 and have been on the phone with the county since working on this issue.
