Pick-Up and Drop-Off Procedures

    • Drop-Off and Pick-Up

      When driving a child to school, please use the far parking lot drop-off/pick-up point.  A staff member will be present.  Please pull forward along the sidewalk to allow for others behind you to pull up as well. Students need to exit/enter cars on the curb side.  Parents are also allowed to park in this lot and walk their child to the sidewalk. Parents must walk with their child through the parking lot if they choose to park their car. The main parking lot bus drop-off lane remains reserved for the buses.



      • Students arrive at school between 7:45 a.m. and 7:55 a.m. Supervision does not begin until 7:45 a.m. Doors will be open for students to enter the building between 7:55 a.m. and 8 a.m.  

      • Students line up by class in the following areas:
        • Kindergarten will line up by Door 9: Students will go right when walking from the front parking lot to the building. Door 9 is the door after the garden before you reach the blacktop. 

        • Grades 1, 2, and 5 will line up on the back blacktop: Students will go to the right when walking past the front doors and go past door 9 to the back blacktop by the playground. Fifth grade will enter the building through door 8. First and second grade will enter the building through door 9.
        • Grades 3 and 4 will line up by door 8: If riding a bus, students will go to the right when walking past the front doors, go past door 9 and past the back blacktop by the playground to the blacktop by the parking lot and door 8. If arriving by car, students may go down the walkway to their left to line up on the blacktop by door 8. 
        • Breakfast: If your child chooses to purchase breakfast, they may enter the building through door 11 (the doors next to the front doors) at 7:45 a.m. and eat in the cafeteria. Students will be assigned a seat in the lunchroom. 
        • Note: To avoid students crossing on the narrow walkways outside, please follow the direction of walking traffic flow mentioned above. Parents may wait outside of the building with their child, but they are not allowed to enter the building. 
      • Students are marked tardy if they arrive after 8 a.m. Students arriving late should enter the main door and stop at the office for a tardy pass. Please call the office or walk your child into the office when they are tardy. Students riding a bus that arrives late to school will not be marked tardy.



      • School dismissal is at 2:15 p.m. Students are supervised by teachers as they leave the building each day. Students in grades K-2 will exit through the front doors. Students in grades 3-5 will exit through door 9. Supervisors are located throughout the building and outside to ensure an orderly and safe dismissal.

      • If you know before your student goes off to school that their transportation is going to change for the day, you must notify the teacher/main office indicating the change. Please be advised that students will not be allowed to ride on a bus other than the one they are assigned to.

      • Students are discouraged from returning to school for things they have forgotten. They should be encouraged to be responsible to gather what they need before they leave school. If a student or parent does return to school, they should check in at the office to gain admittance to the classroom.
