My characters stay on screen and I don't know why!

I’m introducing all my characters at the beginning of my episode but as I transition they stay on screen and it’s driving me crazy!
Here is my script:

INT. GYM - DAY

@add Sheet Paper White to REESE ADLER
@REESE ADLER enters from right to screen center

    REESE ADLER (read_paper_neutral)
(Why was this left in my locker?)

    REESE ADLER (react_shocked_awe)
(A free ticket to an island resort!)

    NARRATOR
Reese Adler:

Age: 22

Trait: Strong, Determined, Kind, Overworked

Job: In college, but wants to be a fitness trainer.

@REESE ADLER exits right
@transition fade out black

INT. BLACK - NIGHT

@pause for a beat

INT. DELTA HOUSE - DAY

@remove Sheet Paper White from REESE ADLER
@add Sheet Paper White to PHOENIX BRYANT
@PHOENIX BRYANT enters from left to screen center

When I transition to The Delta House my character Reese is still on the screen with my other character Phoenix, but I want her to be standing alone. Have I done something wrong?

What you can do is have phoenix stand off screen, like
@PHOENIX BRYANT spot 0.000 y z
@add Sheet Paper white to PHOENIX BRYANT
@PHOENIX enters from left to screen center

It’s most likely because of the remove command. It has happened to be fore. So instead, write the remove command right after Reese exits.
