Rainy day Dismissal Procedure

On days when it is raining during dismissal, ISL asks that parents please park their cars and come directly up to their child’s classroom at dismissal time. Students will be released by the teacher directly to the parent/guardian. We have found that this procedure is more effective and efficient for all parties involved.
