Morning Arrival Procedures

  • Breakfast is available for students each morning between 8:35-9:00 am. Students who eat breakfast at school and ride the bus will be allowed off their buses upon arrival through the main door.
  • Students who are dropped off and/or walkers SHOULD NOT be on school grounds before 8:50 am. No student will be allowed in the building before 8:50 am, unless they are eating breakfast.
  • Parents dropping students off will use the "loop" outside of the K/1 wing (see map below). If you prefer to walk your child to the building, you must park in the visitor parking area outside of the loop.
    • To keep traffic moving smoothly and efficiently, we ask that your child exit your vehicle as quickly as possible.
  • At 8:50 am doors will open:
    • PK/K1 will enter the doors nearest the ramp to the K/1 wing.
    • Grades 2-5 will enter through the lobby doors.

Afternoon Dismissal Procedures

  • Early sign outs will end at 2:30 pm. Should an emergency occur where you need to sign your child out after this time, please call the main office.
  • Please send a note with your child for any daily dismissal changes. Changes may be made by phone call to the main office in emergency situations only.
  • Dismissal will begin promptly at 3:20 pm.
  • All students being picked up by an adult will be dismissed from the doors at the end of the K wing, closest to the visitor/parent parking area (see map below). Parents/guardians should park in the Visitor Parking section nearest the drop off loop, and will sign their students out at the doors of the Kindergarten wing. PARENTS/GUARDIANS MUST SHOW PHOTO ID TO SIGN OUT STUDENT(S).
  • Dismissal of pick up students will be on a first come, first serve basis and will begin as soon as students begin to arrive at the pick up location. Parents may begin lining up at the far end of the K wing NO EARLIER THAN 3:10pm.
  • Once dismissal procedures start, parents/guardians will not be allowed in the building.
  • Walkers (grade 2-5 students who are not being picked up by a parent/guardian and are leaving the school building and/or campus by themselves) will dismiss from the K/1 ramp door that exits to the playground (behind the school). Students will be allowed to walk themselves to the doors. The students will be checked out by a staff member daily (at the doors.)
