At the Open House, parents will be given two tags per family.  Any additional tags needed may be charged at $1.00 per tag. Requests for additional tags should be emailed to the office at charterschool@CIJSstcloud.org.  Each tag will have their child’s first, last name and zone #.

When using the pickup line, please bring this card with you. If you have multiple families in the same carpool, bring ALL of the tags with you.  Each tag will be scanned as you come through the line. Students will be dismissed in zones in order to provide an efficient system for pickup.  If you are picking up students in multiple time brackets, all the children will be ready for pick-up at the time the OLDEST student is dismissed. Parents must arrive in the pickup line at their zone time or later to pick up their children.

Parents without cards will be directed to wait in line at a table out front to show your driver’s license and pick up a temporary tag. Then, you will go into the normal line for YOUR ZONE time to be scanned.  It is best to avoid forgetting your tag or it WILL take you twice the time to pick up your child.

PLEASE DO NOT COME BEFORE YOUR ZONE TIME OR YOU WILL NOT BE SCANNED until your zone time.  DO NOT park the local surrounding businesses! They made it clear to us that they may tow your car as it is unauthorized parking. 

Please DO NOT come to the office to avoid the line. The office will lock the vestibule doors at 3:15 M, T, H, F and 2:15 on Wed. Students will NOT be permitted to be signed out after that point until they get picked up at dismissal during the car line.

3 early dismissals equate to 1 absence. CIJS has a strict attendance policy.  See the Attendance Policy for further details.

Once parked, all parents should walk to the front of the building and stand in front of the cone that is labeled for your zone.  We will scan your card at your designated zone time.
