Drop Off/Pick Up

ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL PROCEDURES 

The parking lot procedures have been designed to help the flow of traffic during arrival and dismissal times. Listed below are all of the arrival and dismissal procedures as well as parking lot procedures. Please be patient during the first few weeks of school as the teachers and staff become familiar with you and can recognize your car. Please have your placards with you at all times. Even after the teacher and staff get to know you and your car, a substitute teacher will not.

 *Teachers and staff are on duty for the safety of your children. Please treat them with respect and consideration at all times, and follow the directions they are giving. We recognize that arrival and dismissal can and will cause delays, however, for the safety of all of the students we ask that you comply, without hesitation, with the directions of the school staff at all times.

South Front and North Parking Lots

These parking lots are reserved for staff only. In the South front parking lot, Pre-K parents may park since they have to sign their student in. Parents may park in the back South parking lot and walk around to the office.

Students and Parents:

Our campus opens its doors for students at 7:45 AM. Please be aware that if you drop your child off before 7:45 AM there will not be anyone outside to supervise them. We do not provide childcare for them unless they are part of our Before/After Care program. When the school opens at 7:45 AM students should proceed to the playground (K-3rd grade) and the North basketball court (4th-8th grade). The whistle will sound at 7:55 AM and students will line up in their designated spot.

Crosswalk

When in any of the parking lots on campus, everyone must use the crosswalk. We ask the adults to set the example. Safety is very important.

Students needing assistance

If your student needs assistance loading or unloading their belongings out of the car, please park in the parking lot and assist them. We cannot have any adults getting out of their car along the curb.

Please be ON-TIME to pick up your student. If your student is not picked up by 3:15 PM, they will be sent to our Extended Care program and parents will have to pay the appropriate fees. Please call the office with any questions. Drop off and pick-up runs smoothly and safely when everyone follows the procedures that have been put in place. We appreciate your patience and support.
