Arrival/Dismissal Procedures

  • Safety First! 

    Drop-off and Pick-up of Students – Please remember that our front driveway turn-around is closed in the morning from 8:45 a.m. to 9:20 a.m. This driveway, as well as the driveway next to the ball diamonds, is closed from 3:00 – 3:25 pm. For cars parking in the back parking lot prior to 3:00 pm, at dismissal time, students can walk to the edge of the playground near the bike racks. Parents can then meet their children there to take them to their cars.

    Also, we ask our parents not to walk their children to their classrooms in the morning. Parents should not proceed past the lobby area. Only the front doors are to be entered by any visitors. This is for everyone’s safety. Anyone in the building who proceeds past the lobby needs to sign in at the office.

    Parents who pick children up during the school day or 10 to 15 minutes prior to the end of the school day cause a disruption to their children’s learning. Please try to make dental and doctor appointments later so that children do not need to leave school early.

    Reminder – We understand that emergencies come up during the day and sometimes plans have to change on how a child is going home. However, we ask that your child knows before he/she comes to school how they will be going home. We have too many children coming in at the end of the day not sure if they are being picked up, riding the bus or walking. We also receive a great many calls asking us to tell a child how they will be going home. This causes a lot of confusion for all involved. We would greatly appreciate any help that you can give us to make sure that your child/ren know how they will be going home.
