CKS Walker Permission Slip
Student safety is a top priority at CKS, and we support and acknowledge the experience and necessity of walking to and from school. However, when parents consider allowing a student to walk to/from school, they should assess whether their child(ren) have the following, necessary characteristics to be a walker:
*A child who is responsible enough to walk independently, without a parent.
*A child who can navigate directions in order to walk independently.
*A child who can successfully cross the street without adult supervision.
*A child who can problem-solve issues that might arise on their walk home or thereafter.
To confirm that parents have made this assessment and concluded that their child(ren) are able to be a walker, and before CKS staff will release a student as a walker, CKS requires this electronically signed permission slip to be on file for each school year. Walkers will be dismissed once afternoon carline has cleared the front parking lot.
Following afternoon announcements, students who are walkers will remain in their cohort, during which time they are:
1. To adhere to all expectations set forth by the supervising faculty/staff member, who will enforce school policy in reference to disciplinary consequences if/when needed.
2. To be dismissed, by family/household, to allow for appropriate social distancing, etc.
3. To keep phones put away; they may not be used until the dismissal process is complete. Cell phones used during the dismissal process will be confiscated by teachers and brought to the office. Cell phones should not be seen or heard.
Once carline has cleared the front lot, students will be escorted, as a group, by faculty/staff until reaching the Cochran Road sidewalk in front of the school.*
*Due to the overall dismissal activity across campus, faculty members will NOT be available to walk with students beyond this point. Students should not cross the street until they have reached a CROSSWALK, and faculty or staff who observe a student's failure to comply with this restriction may report the incident to administrative staff as a disciplinary matter.
Any student who does NOT have this form on file will NOT be allowed to walk home at dismissal, and he/she will instead be taken to the school office to call their parent/guardian to arrange for pick-up. If pick-up has not occurred by 3:10 p.m., the student will be transferred to our Extended Day Program (EDP), where they can be supervised, and parents will be billed the EDP daily drop-in fee of $20 through RenWeb.
