School Dismissal Procedures:

There are two designated areas for dismassal. For the Main Street entrance, students are dismissed from the gates on each side of the flagpole. The side is determined by grade level.  For the School Street entrance, students are dismissed from the gymnasium. 
Parents/guardians are to sign-out the student on the school dismissal form to document the child is with the appropriate parent/adult. An ID may be required if the parent/guardian is unknown to the dismissal teacher.
If another adult is going to pick up a child, a note has to be sent from the parent of the change. The new adult will have to show an ID.  If there is no ID, the child will not be dismissed.
Please call with notice of changes before 2:30 PM.
There will be no early student dismissals after 2:50 PM, unless it’s an emergency.
STUDENT WALKERS: Parents are required to put in writing the dates and location where their child is walking to after school.  Student walker requests need to be forwarded to and filed with the principal’s office.
We ask for your continued patience as we work with our new school dismissal procedures.  Extra staff will assist with student dismissal areas.  Please direct questions to your child’s teacher or to Mr. Douglas, Principal.
The safety and accountability of all Rowe Elementary students is our top priority.




  • No student is to arrive at school until 8:30AM. (hardship case contact the principal to make arrangements)
  • Please do not dismiss your child before 3:05 unless they have an appointment.
  • Students are not allowed to use cell phones in school during school hours. Student cell phones will be stored in a safe place in their teacher's classroom.
  • Students are not permitted to wear hoods or hats in the school building, with the exception of Student/Staff Theme days.
  • Students are not to bring soda, coffee or fruit punch drinks to school.  As a 5-2-1-0 health school, we ask for your assistance.  Please send water to school with your child, as it is the healthiest option.
