Joshua Dixon: A reminder that today is the Fall Fun Day Costume Procession at Dixon at 2:00. Optimistically speaking, there is only a 30% chance of showers, in the event that it is raining at 1:30 we will cancel and I will use this platform to alert parents. Spectators are Parents ONLY. Parents should park in the First Christian Church Lot or the Far Library Lot. Overflow can use the Dixon Side Lot, NOT THE FRONT LOT PLEASE. Parents can line up on the sidewalk in front of the Library. The sidewalk in front of Dixon is for the Students. As per our Columbiana County Health Dept. approved plan to have this event, parents need to return to their cars immediately following the procession. Students will enter the building and then parents can form the dismissal lines in the front lot. The Columbiana Police Dept. will be assisting with line up and the exiting of the lots especially the side lot due to buses entering. No parents can come into the building afterwards and NO STUDENTS WILL BE DISMISSED FROM THE PARADE-UNLESS WE RECEIVED A DR. APPT. NOTE THIS MORNING. Dismissal routine will be the same. Once again, thank you to those who get in line and have their children dismiss as car riders and not walkers that go to cars. If this is a continuing safety issue, walkers will be dismissed following the car line. Links are below to review our plans for today. Thank you and have a great weekend.

Dixon Parents of Car Riders: It was brought to my attention that due to cars blocking the entrance, exit, and alley during car rider dismissal, the patrons visiting the Public Library across the street are unable to pull in or out of the library parking lot. Perhaps coming in off Stanton to make a right into Dixon would be a better option. Your consideration while in the dismissal line is appreciated. Thank you.

The administration and staff at Joshua Dixon Elem. have worked hard to create a safe school environment, which includes our afterschool dismissal procedures. Please assist me in doing my job, which is to keep children safe, and teach them that rules matter. It is unfortunate that a notification must be sent again, because some families are continuing to park in various locations, and come to the entrance, telling their child to dismiss with the walkers, when in fact, they are not a walker at all. Students at Dixon are taught to follow the rules and hold themselves accountable. Asking them to not follow a rule is causing an internal struggle for many, and may have long-term effects for some. Beginning Monday, regular walkers will be dismissed. Those car riders coming up as walkers, will be called out following the line of traffic. The dismissal routine is in place for a reason and the children know the expectations. Any questions, please contact me 330-482-5355 ext. 34507. Thank you and have a great weekend. Mrs. Sharshan.

Dixon Families: Despite our continuously improving dismissal time, there is a concern with traffic blocking intersections. That said, Sgt. Boley and I are going to try and get 2-lines of traffic in the lot, and once stopped, load those vehicles, let them exit and bring in two more rows. It is our hope that this will mitigate the overflow of traffic by at least one row each time cars line-up. Your patience and understanding is much appreciated as we tread through dismissing this higher than normal percentage of car riders. Please remember that safety is our number one concern.

Joshua Dixon: This is a reminder to all families that are car riders OR walkers at the end of the day. Walkers are considered those students that physically walk home with someone and car riders are those students that get picked up and ride home in a car. The students understand this. The high-volume of traffic is moving steadily with the circulation time lessening daily. The current dismissal protocol is a safe process. It is very confusing, and some students are getting upset when they are told to leave with the walkers, when in fact, they are getting in cars parked in the side lot. The dangers of school dismissal are all too real and this is a major safety concern. Beginning tomorrow, same as last year, the side lot will be blocked off. Please, the children respect the process and understand what they are supposed to do at dismissal time. Car riders waiting at the flag pole will be dismissed after those following the dismissal routine.
