• Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

    SAFETY!!!! SAFETY!!!!! SAFETY!!!!!

    The safety of Ralph J. Bunche Preparatory Academy students is at the forefront of our concern. We want to create an environment where students and staff are comfortable and feel safe. WE ARE ASKING THAT ALL PARENTS ADHERE TO THE ENTERING AND EXITING PROCEDURES OF THE BUILDING.


    Entry/Exit Doors

    Grade Level Door Number       Door Number

    Pre-K - 5th                                    #1

    6th – 8th                                       #4


    IF a middle school student is signing in a pre-K student, THEN they may enter door #1



    Late Students:

    At 7:40 all doors will be closed and students arriving after that time will enter through the main entrance (door #1). A staff member will be there to greet children. Students who arrive after 7:45 a.m. are late and will receive a tardy pass.


    Visiting Parent

    All visiting parents must check in in the main office with the exception of pre-K parents.

    If parents need to speak with a teacher, parents must schedule meetings with teachers. Teachers are NOT allowed to interrupt instruction to meet with parents. 



    Bunche students are dismissed at 2:40 p.m. every day. It is imperative to allow all students to obtain their full hours of instruction. Therefore, we are asking parents

    NOT to pick up their children early. If you must pick up your child early, they must be picked up by 2:10 in order to be released. It is too challenging for our staff to focus on dismissal and retrieve students who are leaving early. We simply cannot accommodate all of the requests. PARENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PICK UP THEIR CHILDREN IN THE LAST 30 MINUTES OF THE DAY.



    THE MAIN LOT IS FOR STAFF PARKING ONLY!!!!!! Violators will be towed at the owner’s expense. Parents and visitors have to park in the designated area on the map attached.


    TRAFFIC CONTROL The safety of the students is the most important goal during drop-off and pick-up.  We all have the responsibility to see that every child is safe.  In addition, we need to keep traffic moving to facilitate student arrival and dismissal in a timely way.  It is imperative that the following rules are observed:

    · On the Macomb side, please go around the circle to drop-off.  Do not leave your vehicle.  Do not drop off on the opposite side of the street. Keep moving forward as cars in front of you leave. Parking rules will be enforced and tickets will be issued to those that do not adhere to the city’s parking guidelines.

    · If there is a need for parents to enter the building to visit the office, parking will be allowed in the designated area located on the attached map.

    · Do not enter the parking lot to drop off your children. Staff is still arriving; therefore, we need the parking lot cleared for moving traffic.

    · Be patient!  You are training your child (ren) on how to follow rules and laws by the example you set.
