Final Check Out Procedures

Category : Announcements

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Below you will find the procedures for picking up students after final exams. This should eliminate the problem of vehicles being backed up on Hickory Road when parents pick up students after final exams. The map that is included, illustrates the
route that you are to follow each day if you are going to pick up a student after semester exams.

Drivers are to enter the Sequoyah East (Old DRMS) entrance on Hickory Road and follow the route on the map to the SHS pick‐up area that is located in the SHS bus lane

After a driver picks up a student(s) in the SHS bus lane pick‐up area, the driver will exit the SHS campus via the bus lane drive that exits onto Hickory Road. The driver must turn right onto Hickory Road. No left turns will be permitted.

No student may be picked up in front of the Sequoyah High School building or SHS East building during early dismissal.

All students who are being picked‐up will wait for their ride in the bus lane.
Students must have all their debts cleared and have a signed Permission For Early Check Out form on file to be eligible to leave school each day after semester exams.
