End-of-School-Day
Dismissal Procedures

Each day for dismissal, Griffin Middle School will start by dismissing Car Riders at 4:15 (if a majority of buses are present). This timeline is linked to how many of our buses are present. After Car Riders have excited, and if all but two buses are present, then GMS will dismiss students to buses by zones. We have 3 zones based on the number of students in each area. Walkers will be dismissed with bus riders but will go to the cafeteria until all buses have left campus and then Walkers will be dismissed. We do this for safety purposes. Our goal is to get all buses off campus by 4:30 and this past year we were successful a majority of the time.

On the first day of school, students will let their homeroom teacher know which mode of transportation they will be: Car Rider, Bus Rider, or Walker. We will record this information, and they will need permission from you to change it to one of the other two. With over 1,300 students, our number one goal is to keep all kids safe and we need your help in doing this. 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.


Thank you, Volunteers!
Griffin Looks Great!!

A very special "thank you" goes out to our Annual "Spruce-up" volunteers. Thanks to our volunteers, students will be greeted with a new garden walkway, a manicured lawn, and fresh paint along the sidewalks and in the bus lanes. #BeGreatBeGriffin
