Morning Drop Off and Afternoon Pickup Procedures

PRESCHOOL:

Our preschool hours are 8:50 a.m. to 11:55 a.m. and 12:45 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./12:45 p.m. or leaving before 11:55 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, please proceed to the rear parking lot near the gym.  We ask that you park and walk your child to the door next to the music room.  At 8:50 am a staff member will be available to greet your child as they enter the building.  Students can proceed to their classrooms independently after they enter the building.  Please do not drop students off at the upper entrance, as your vehicle will interfere with bus traffic.  If you need to help your child carry something to their classroom in the morning, please park in the main office parking lot; enter the building, sign-in and get a visitor badge at the main entrance.

 

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 must use the entrance at the back of the building near the music room.  You will need to sign-out your child before leaving.
