Truman Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

All students are required to wear a face covering during arrival and dismissal.

Car Riders


School begins at 8:05 A.M. each day.  Students brought to school by private vehicle should not arrive at school prior to 7:35 A.M.  Please do not drop off children any earlier as there will not be supervision.  

To minimize student interaction we have divided the parent drop off location into three areas: 

  • Pre-K parents will park and walk their students directly to the Pre-K doors. 
  • Kindergarten & 1st grade parents will use the drop off lane in the front lot. Students will enter the main doors at the front of the building and head directly to their classrooms. 
  • 2nd and 3rd grade parents will use the drop off lane in the East Back Lot. Students will enter the East Wing Doors and head directly to their classrooms. 
  • Families with multiple students in both age groups will use the front lot. 

Parents dropping off students by private vehicle are asked to pull through the drop-off lane to unload. To keep traffic flowing, please pull forward as far as possible, and unload in a timely manner.  For safety purposes, students should only exit the vehicle from the passenger side.

There is no parking in the drop-off lane during arrival or dismissal times. Do not attempt to pass a vehicle that is unloading – this is not a safe practice. For safety purposes, the bus lane is designated and is reserved for buses only. Please do not use this lane for private vehicles and do not block their entrance or exit. 


Parents are not allowed to park and pick up their children. During dismissal, adults should remain in their vehicle pulling forward into the loading zone. A staff member will walk your student to the car and assist with loading. Please be patient during the first two weeks as everyone is learning a new routine. Once established, the car rider line will move quickly and efficiently. 

The school provided vehicle tag should be displayed in the vehicle window. The teacher on duty has been instructed to require the tag for release of a student.  If you or the person you have designated to pick up your child does not have the tag, they will have to come to the office and present a picture ID. 

  • Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st grade students will use the pick up lane in front of the school
  • 2nd and 3rd grade students will use the pick up lane in the back east lot. 
  • Families with multiple students in both age groups will use the front lot. 

Bus Riders

During dismissal, students will be seated by bus cohorts in the gym. Cohorts will remain masked and socially distant when possible. Please see the Rolla Public Schools website for more information regarding transportation services and student expectations during COVID-19. 


For safety purposes, Kindergarten students are not allowed to walk. There may be an exception, if they have an older sibling present or a parent walks with them. Otherwise, Kindergarten students must ride the bus or be picked up in the car rider line.
