  • Car Riders

    All drop offs & pick ups take place at the front of the building, curbside only, along the front entry sidewalk.  Students may be dropped off & enter the building starting at 9:00am.  Afternoon pickup concludes at 4:10pm.

    In order to maximize traffic flow & minimize wait time for others, be sure to move forward as far as possible before discharging or taking on passengers, rain or shine.  Attendants will be present to direct drivers accordingly.

  • Afternoon Dismissal and Pickup Time

    Parents, if you plan to pick up your student early for any reason in the afternoon, you cannot do so after 3:40.  Your students will be dismissed at the normal dismissal time(3:50) at this point.

    After 3:20, we will do everything we can to get the word to your students if you call to make a change from a bus rider to a car rider.  But, just be aware that, depending on what class they are in, we cannot always guarantee success.

    The front office is a very busy place at this time of the day, and we appreciate your understanding.

    The Virginia Council on Educational Opportunity for Military Children voted on October 26, 2023, to approve Dixon-Smith Middle School as a recipient of the SY 2023-2024 Purple Star Award.  

    Our Dixon-Smith Middle school earned this honor by making our school a welcoming and supportive place, especially for our military-connected students.
