Morning Drop Off and Afternoon Pickup Procedures

PRESCHOOL: 

 

Our preschool hours are 8:50 a.m. to 11:35 a.m. and 1:05 p.m. to 3:35 p.m.  Please observe these times if you are dropping off or picking up your child.  Any child arriving later than 9:05 a.m./1:05 p.m. or leaving before 11:35 a.m./3:35 p.m., must be signed in or out of the office.  We cannot provide supervision to students before or after their instructional day and would ask that you observe the start and end times of the a.m. and p.m. sessions.  We understand that dismissal plans can change during the day due to unforeseen circumstances. Therefore, we ask that you call the main office directly to communicate any changes. Please do not use email communication for this purpose.  Thank you for your attention to this matter. 

 

For safety purposes, students will not be dismissed to an adult other than their parent/guardian unless the parent has contacted the school either by phone or in writing.  If the school cannot contact a parent/guardian in the event of an emergency, the emergency contact will be called and asked to pick up the student.

GRADES K – 4: 

Students are not permitted to arrive at school before 8:50 am as adult supervision is not available until that time.  In order to begin our instructional day at 9:05 am, we request that all students are in their classrooms by 9:00 am.  Our dismissal time is 3:35 pm.  Any students arriving later than 9:05 am or needing to leave before 3:35 pm must be signed in or out of the main office.  

 

For safety purposes, students will not be dismissed to an adult other than their parent/guardian unless the parent has contacted the school either by phone or in writing.  If the school cannot contact a parent/guardian in the event of an emergency, the emergency contact will be called and asked to pick up the student.  

 

Morning Drop-Off Procedure:  We encourage all students to ride District provided transportation.  If you need to drop your child off at school in the morning, pull into the upper-level parking lot between 8:50 and 9:05.  Please follow the directions/hand signals of the staff to keep things moving smoothly.  Here are a few tips/reminders for families that are dropping students off in the morning: 

  • Please don’t try to pull in ahead of cars, we want to avoid accidents! 

  • Students should be exiting on the passenger side of the car.  Students who are able to open the car doors themselves can do so, otherwise a staff member will assist with this.  

  • Cars that are on the back end of the drop-off area can pull around cars that are still unloading once your child has exited the car; we simply ask that you do so slowly and use your signal light.  (Cars that are in the inner half-circle at the front of the drop-off area should wait for the car in front of them to pull out.) 

  • The staff will supervise students as they enter the building.  Please leave the drop-off area as soon as your child leaves your vehicle in order to keep the flow of traffic moving.   

 

Afternoon Pick-Up Procedures:  If you are picking your child up at the end of the day you should send a note in with your child that morning.  We understand that dismissal plans can change during the day due to unforeseen circumstances. Therefore, we ask that you call the main office directly before 12:00 pm to communicate any changes. Please do not leave a voicemail for your child’s teacher or use email communication for this purpose.  If you make arrangements to pick your child up from school at dismissal (3:35) you will park in the parking lot behind the lower building.  You will need to sign-out your child before leaving.
