Just a reminder for our afternoon traffice dismissal. Pickens Elementary uses Driveline to help with dismissal. All people picking up students in the car line each afternoon are required to have a car tag displayed in their front windshield before students will be released from class. If a car does not have a car tag displayed, the person will be asked to park and come in and show ID before the student is dismissed. Dismissal will begin shortly after 2:20pm each day. All traffic should enter the car loop on S. Lewis Street at the intersection of Jefferson Street (Please see the picture below). Once you turn left onto Monroe Street, you will be divided into two lines according to the car tag number. Numbers from 300-500 will be on the left hand side. All other numbers will be in the right hand lane closest to the school. Please remain in your lane so the appropriate staff member can put in your car tag number. Students should enter their car from the passenger side. If a student needs to be buckled, please pull forward after your line moves and pull out of the way of traffic to buckle your child. Please do not get out of your car while you are in the car line. All cars will exit the school property by turning right onto Hampton Street.
