Arrival At School

Students MAY NOT arrive at school UNTIL 8:50 AM. There is no adult supervision prior to the unloading of buses which begins at that time. School officially begins at 9:00 AM and 12:40 PM for the afternoon session.

If you are driving your child to school, please drop him/her off in the upper parking lot at the crosswalk. A staff member will be there to help students cross in front of the buses. Please note that all vehicles must be parked in designated parking spaces. Please do not park in the fire lane or in travel lanes. There are six spaces reserved for student drop-off and pick up. These are meant for short term parking while a student is being brought in or being picked up from school. If these spaces are filled, please park in an available parking space.

If you walk your child into the school, please say good-bye in the main entry. We ask that you do not walk your child to the classroom, as this requires a visitor’s pass from the office. If you need to speak with the teacher, we will be happy to make an appointment for you.

Pickup of students at Dismissal

Dismissal is a very hectic time in a classroom. To make the process run smoothly if your child is being picked up at dismissal, you must send a note to school in the morning stating the date, child’s full name, and the name of the person that is picking him/her up. This person must be on your approved pick up list or the school must have written notification in advance signed by legal guardian. School staff can’t take changes over the phone. Please do not call or arrive unexpectedly at dismissal time, as this creates confusion in the office and classroom. While emergencies do arise, please plan ahead by writing a note so we can be sure that your child arrives home safely. Please note that all vehicles must be parked in designated parking spaces. Please do not park in the fire lane or in travel lanes.Parent Pick-up will take place in the office. Every child must be signed out; parents may arrive at 3:25 to begin the process. Students being picked up will be called to the office at 3:25 PM. Anyone picking up a child must present a valid photo ID.
