Communication & Social Skills at MAYPORT ELEMENTARY
CSS Arrival and Dismissal
CSS Arrival and dismissal is located at the back of Mayport Elementary (not the front of the school or side bus loop). Please drive all the way around to the back of the school and enter through the back gate. Please stay to the right after entering and head toward the covered area. Students will be dropped off and picked up in this area. Parents, please do not get out of your car and please do not get your child out of your car when you arrive. Students will be escorted by CSS staff.
Morning Arrival: Arrival for car riders and buses begins at 8:00am and ends at 8:30am. All students will be in their classrooms by 8:30 to begin the day. Each student will have a daily communication folder. Please sign and return daily. If there is something that your child’s teacher needs to know then please communicate this in the folder or email your child’s teacher. You can also call the front office for assistance at (904) 247-5988. If you arrive after 8:30 then you will need to bring your child to the front office to sign them in and wait with them until CSS is called and staff comes up to the office to escort your child back to the classroom. We appreciate your patience while waiting as we are a busy Department, and the CSS unit is at the back of the school away from the office.
Dismissal: CSS begins dismissal at 2:40pm in the afternoon. Students are escorted by staff out to cars and buses as the arrive. Please make sure you have your car tag displayed on your vehicles rear view mirror. Our staff will call for your child to be escorted out as you arrive for dismissal.
