Dismissal Procedures

Oak Hammock Middle School Dismissal Procedures

Student Dismissal is at 4:00 PM.  Please choose one main way your child will go home: Parent Pick Up, Walker, Bus, or After School Activity/Tutoring.  Many students take advantage of our afterschool activities, intramurals, and tutoring. Communicate with your child each morning if your child will be staying after school for an activity.  If you need to make changes to the way your child will go home, please call the front office before 3:30 pm.  Please do not email staff with dismissal changes, as they may not see the message in time.

Bus Riders

Students riding the bus must ride their designated bus to and from school.  In the event a student needs to ride another bus home, the request must be in writing and provided to the front office by 10:00 that same morning.  Office staff will call to inform the parent/guardian if the request is approved or denied.  Requests will only be approved according to district guidelines.


Walkers will be dismissed first.  Walkers must exit through the gates in the rear of OHMS property. The gate will be closed and locked at 4:15.   Students on campus after this time without permission will be disciplined accordingly.

Parent Pick-Up Procedures

  • Parent-Pick up ends at 4:30pm. Students staying after 4:30 will be sent to the fee based after school program.
  • Please refer to the picture below and follow the proper traffic flow
  • Drop off and pick up your student along the sidewalk adjacent to the front of the building
  • There is no parking at Manatee Elementary or in the grass between the two schools.

Afterschool Activities and Tutoring

OHMS offers many after school activities, intramural, and tutoring Monday through Thursday.  All activities end at 5:15. An activities and tutoring calendar will be available during open house and on our website.  Students attending an after school event must be picked up by 5:30 or they will be sent to the fee based after school program.  The school also provides activity busses that will drop your child off at a designated stop near your house.  The activity bus route will be available the second week of school.
