***Kindergarten students who have an older sibling at FPDS may be picked up at the kindergarten door on the Pinehurst Street side at 2:45 carpool.
RAINY DAY CARPOOL
On rare occasions when tornado warnings or severe thunderstorms are present at 2:45 p.m., students will not be dismissed to stand outside in dangerous weather conditions. The school administration will send out a text message using our REMIND messaging system indicating that parents must come into the building to pick up their carpools. In addition, administration will place a red flag outside the kindergarten entrance and on Belhaven Street.
Security guards are posted on both the Belhaven and Pinehurst Street parking lots 24 hours a day. Cameras are also posted inside and outside the building. ALL doors remain locked. Parents will use a code or be buzzed in at one door at the Pinehurst Entrance and one door at the Belhaven Entrance
