Drop-Off & Pick-Up Procedures

Student Hours

Students reading books on the floorStudents may enter the school building starting at 7:30 a.m. There is no adult supervision for students prior to 7:30 a.m. Students who arrive between 7:30 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. should report to the cafeteria until school starts. Our school day officially begins at 8:00 a.m.; therefore, any students arriving after 8:00 a.m. are officially tardy. If your child arrives after 8:00 a.m., please park in a designated parking spot and enter the building to sign him/her in so he/she can receive a tardy pass. A student who is consistently tardy misses vital instruction. Please strive to have your children at school on time daily. It will help to develop a positive pattern for them as they mature.

Morning Arrival for Car Riders

You may drop your child off at beginning at 7:30 a.m. The designated area for drop-off is in front of our school. A staff member will be present beginning at 7:30 a.m. to supervise students as they make their way into enter the building. We encourage all students to open the car door closest to the sidewalk and walk on the on the sidewalk to ensure individual safety.

Escorting Your Child Into the School Building

Parents who wish to escort their children into the school lobby should park in the parking lot in front of the school building. Beginning the second week of school, we will designate our lobby as the “Hug and Kiss Goodbye Zone.” We encourage parents to use this zone to wish their children a great day at school, then allow students to walk to their classrooms without a parent to foster their independence.

Notifying Staff of Changes in Afternoon Dismissal Plans

If you need to alter your child’s typical dismissal plan, please send a note to your child’s teacher in the morning. If an emergency arises and you need to make a last minute change, please call the school office at 723-3560 before 1:00 p.m. We ask that you follow up with an email and be prepared to show photo identification before your child is released. 

Early Dismissal for Appointments

If your child has a medical appointment that requires early dismissal, please complete and send in a note to make your child’s teacher and or our office staff aware. Parents who wish to pick their children up prior to our regular dismissal (2:30 p.m.) should plan to pick up their child in the office before 2:00 p.m.
