Portland Gateview Elementary

PGE Arrival Dismissal


Car riders should not arrive before 6:30 a.m.  Students will be dismissed to their classrooms at 7:00 a.m. Students transported by car should enter the front of the school and be in their classroom prior to 7:15 a.m. Any arrival after 7:15 a.m. is considered tardy.

Late Arrivals

An adult must accompany students who arrive after 7:15 a.m. in the front office and sign in.  The student will be given a pass to be admitted to class.  Tardiness is an unnecessary interruption of class time and should be avoided.  Students who arrive late cannot be escorted to their class by a parent.  All entrances will be locked from the outside after 7:15 a.m. Students who arrive after 10:36 a.m. will be considered absent for the entire day.


Afternoon dismissal will begin at 2:15 p.m. for grades K-5.  All car riders will be dismissed in the car rider line. If you walk into the office to sign your child out in lieu of using the car rider line, your child will be charged with one early dismissal after every 3 occurrences. Please remain in your car and school personnel will assist the students to their vehicle. All vehicles should have the school-provided sign. Families will be given one (1) sign per family. If you do not have a car rider sign, you may be asked to come into the front office and verify your identity.

Early Dismissal

If a student is picked up prior to 2:15 p.m., it will be counted as an early dismissal.
