NEW DISMISSAL PROCEDURES-2023-2024
Beginning with the 2023-2024 School Year, we will be changing the times and procedures for dismissal.
Dismissal will begin at 3:25pm.
Parents will no longer be allowed in the vestibule after 3:00pm and the front sign-in log will be closed to prepare for dismissal. If you need to pick up your student early for the day, you must arrive before 3:00pm and sign your student out.
If you are coming to pick up your student early, we will get your student ready when you arrive and you must show an ID. If you have an alternate person coming to pick up a student for any reason, please call in advance and let us know the person's name and they will have to have an ID to sign out your student.
You will pull up through the Windsor parking lot and a staff member will come to your vehicle and ask your student's name and they will be called out to meet you. The line will usually start forming 15-20 minutes before dismissal and your student will be called at 3:25pm.
Walkers will be released at 3:25pm
If you are out front waiting to meet up with your student, please check in with a staff member to make sure that your student is called in a timely manner.
We are looking forward to this school year and a smooth dismissal each day!
For the safety of all students and staff at Windsor, some new policies will be enforced in regards to access to the school building during the school day.
All visitors to Windsor will be required to sign-in on the Raptor computer system in the front vestibule. You will need to have your ID to sign-in appropriately. When in the school building, parents will be escorted by a staff member or safety and security to the location of their business in the building. Individuals who do not appear on the student's Infinite Campus list of contacts will be unable to enter the school building without prior approval.
Please contact the office if you have any questions regarding the enforcement of safe school policies.
Windsor Dress Code
Windsor will no longer be requiring students to wear uniforms, but students must adhere to the Columbus City Schools dress code policy.

- NO SLIDES OR FLIP FLOP SHOES
