After School Dismissal Procedures

There are two student pick up and drop off areas to Barbara Bush Middle School;

  • Bus Lot – The circle drive providing access to the south side or front of the building, and
  • Parent Pick-up Loop – Located on the East side of the building providing access to the Cafeteria, Gymnasium and Track area.

Walkers:  Students who walk home from school should exit the doors near the main office in front of the building.  Students should leave campus immediately once exiting the building.  Loitering on the premises or re-entry into the building will not be permitted.

Bus Riders:    Bus riders will exit the building through the Fine Arts Hall Doors.  Students should wait to board their assigned bus in an orderly fashion on the grass area adjacent to the circle drive.  Parents will not be allowed access to the front parking lot during afterschool dismissal.  This lot is designated for BUS Entrance Only.

Bus Behavior Expectations –  Students  are expected to:

  • Sit in his/her assigned seat and remain seated at all times while the bus is in operation.
  • Keep hands, feet, arms, head and personal belongings inside the bus at all times.
  • Obey the bus driver at all times.

Students choosing to not follow behavior expectations will be subject to Administrative discipline.  Persistent misconduct may result in loss of bus privileges.

Car Riders:    Car riders will exit the building through the Cafeteria doors to wait for their ride on the East side of the building.  Students are expected to wait on the sidewalk area surrounding the Memory Garden Area for parents to arrive.  Students will only be permitted to enter their vehicle from the curb closest to the building or after crossing the lot at the cross walk (at the direction of BBMS Staff) to enter the vehicle from the parking lot.

After school pick- up lines can sometimes be long and appear to move slowly because of the large number of car riders.  Parents are expected to follow the established ONE-WAY traffic flow and exercise patience with the dismissal process.  Following the directions of the BBMS Staff support student safety and orderly dismissal.
