The two small hoses at the upper most part of the coolant system that T into one hose and connect to the top of the radiator coolant reservoir are supposed to do that function. As long as those two fittings/nipples are at the highest point in the engine cooling system, all air "should" make its way to that highest point and then to the reservoir for the degas function.

There should be nothing higher in the cooling system than those two nipples on the lower intake, this means that the heater core, and any other cooling system lines/hoses must be below those two nipples. Once the thermostat opens, the coolant "should" push the air through the system and it will make its way to those two high points.
