Dismissal Policies at A.A. Nelson

For the safety of all children, please adhere to the guidelines:

~Parent Pickup at Cafeteria: 

·        Only Pre-K and buses will be dismissed from the cafeteria door. Other parents must park and walk up to get their child from the cafeteria if you prefer.

·        Pre-K is dismissed at 2:30.  K-5 students will be dismissed beginning at 2:55.

·        No other grade level may be picked up at the door of the cafeteria. The only exception will be if your Pre-K student has and older sibling, but the older sibling will not be dismissed until 2:55.


            ~Car Pickup Line:  Dismissal begins at 2:55

·        Grades Kindergarten-5th 

      All students must be picked up in the car rider line in the back circular drive.  

      Parents will not be allowed to walk up to pick up their child.

·        All back circle cars must have an orange Nelson pickup sign with the child’s name and grade on the tag. Place it on the front dash. Once your child has been loaded, please remove the sign.  Please use these signs every day as this speeds up the pickup process. Front circle cars must have the green sign to be allowed through the circle.  Extra signs are in the office.


Thank you for your cooperation to ensure a smooth and safe dismissal.

Reminders:     All transportation changes should be called into the school no later than 2:00 (217-4790).     No checkouts after 2:30.  These are the policies of the Calcasieu Parish School District.
