Drop Off/Pick Up Procedures
These procedures are in place to ensure the safety of all of our students. Please do not leave your children outside the building before 7:00 a.m.
Transportation Changes/ Notes
Each day when your child arrives he/she should know how they are getting home. If your child does not have a note (signed & dated), we will send him/her home by bus or car according to the registration card. If a car rider needs to ride a bus or a bus rider needs to go to the car line, you must send a note with the child. Students will not be allowed to change their usual way of departing school without a written note from the parent or guardian or a message delivered by the office. The office will accept emergency changes until 1:50 p.m. each day. After 1:50 p.m. dismissal procedures are in place and no changes will be allowed except in the case of an extreme emergency. The teacher/office will not accept the child’s word, the parent/guardian must write a note.
Early Sign Out
If a student is signed out early, you will need to show a picture ID .
Morning Arrival Procedures
All car riders should be dropped off after 7:00 AM at the front entrance of the school. A parent is to walk with them if they cross the crosswalk. Students who arrive before 7:30 AM must report to their classrooms where their teacher is receiving students. Students arriving after 7:30 AM and 7:45 AM should report directly to their classrooms and will be marked tardy. Anyone arriving after 7:45 AM should be walked inside by an adult to the office for a tardy notice to report to class. Parents are not allowed to walk students to classrooms after 7:30. Students who arrive on a late buss will not be counted tardy.
