• Arrival and Dismissal Policy at Fisher Magnet Lower Academy


    Student entry to Fisher Magnet Lower is at 7:30 a.m. When the weather is cold or rainy, we allow students to come into the school before the start of school to wait in the halls. Grades K through 4 enter at the front door of the school at State Fair and Crusade. All adults who enter the building must sign-in and get a pass.

    Preschool parents and students enter at the back of the building through the Preschool door. Parents may sign their students in and leave out of the same door only. If Preschool parents need to go to other places in the building, they should enter at the front door to obtain a visitor’s pass before proceeding to any classroom. Teachers will be called by office staff to see if they can conference with you at that time. If they cannot see you at that time, you may make an appointment to see them on their preparation period and you will be called.

    Dismissal for Preschool starts at 2:30 p.m. at the back of the building.

    Dismissal for Kindergarten students is at 2:30 p.m. at Door 3 on Crusade.
