• Dismissal

    BAK has established a dismissal plan for the safety of all stakeholders. Tri-Rail riders are dismissed at 3:20 p.m., car riders at 3:15 p.m., and bus riders are dismissed as the buses arrive. Students must remain in their classrooms until their mode of transportation is called. Students who go home by car may only be picked up in the student pick-up/drop-off loop. Parents must stay in the car line until they reach the pick-up area and their student is released to enter the car. Students may not leave the pick-up area to go to a parent waiting in a parked car.

    Early Dismissal

    Students are expected to attend a full school day. However, the school recognizes that from time-to-time compelling circumstances require that a student be late to school or dismissed before the end of the school day. However, in the rare instance that a student needs to leave school early, we have implemented an early dismissal plan that was designed not to disrupt the learning environment to preserve our safety/security procedures. Therefore, students must adhere to the following early dismissal procedures to be released before the regular dismissal times:

    1. Bring a note signed by the parent indicating the following: student name, student ID number, grade level, the time the student is being picked up, and the name of the person who is picking up the student.
    2. Bring the note to the back of Student Services in the morning and drop it in the metal dropbox.
    3. Show the early release pass (that was given to the students) to your teacher when you enter the class to inform the teacher that you will be leaving early (tell the time/show pass).
    4. Leave at the appropriate time and to Student Services (remind the teacher before leaving class).

    School District Policy: Excessive early sign-outs will be addressed on a case-by-case basis to determine if there is a pattern of non-attendance. Accumulated early dismissals will be recorded as unexcused absences consistent with Fla. Stat. § 1003.02(1)(b). When a secondary student misses fifty (50) percent or more of a class period due to early dismissal or arrival late to school, the student shall be considered and marked absent.
