ARRIVAL PROCEDURES 2018-2019Students NOT ENROLLED in Extended Day are welcome to arrive as early as 8:00 A.M. School begins promptly at 8:30.
CAR RIDERSIt is not safe to drop your student off BEFORE 8:00 A.M. There is no adult supervision at this time. When dropping your student off, please pull all the way up in the car rider line. Stopping in front of the door to drop off your student backs up traffic. Please do not park in the car rider line. This also backs up the car rider line. When arriving to school (at or after 8:00), ALL STUDENTS will go directly to their holding area with supervising staff until they are picked up by their teacher.
BUS RIDERSALL Kindergarten students must complete a Bus Rider Form BEFORE they are permitted to ride the bus. The form is included in the New Kindergarten Registration Packet. Please consider labeling your child’s backpack or agenda with their bus number and your contact number (especially new bus riders and K/1st grade students). Bus riders will exit their bus upon arrival and go directly to their holding area with supervising staff until they are picked up by their teacher.
Walkers and Bike Riders should walk and ride on the paved walkway once they arrive on campus. They should arrive to school no earlier than 8:00. Please remind your walker/bike rider of safety precautions as they make their way to school each day.DISMISSAL PROCEDURES 2018-2019CAR RIDER PARENTS
Dismissal begins promptly at 3:00. PLEASE make sure that you have your car rider tag. This will help the car rider line to move quickly. EFFECTIVE 8/25/15 WE WILL DISCONTINUE THE WALK UP LINE. All car rider parents should remain in their car with their car rider tag visible so that staff can call the number which releases their child. Car Rider Parents walking up DURING dismissal to pick up their child will have to WAIT until all parents waiting in their cars have picked up their children.
School Board Policy (5.42) States that:
“A student should not be released within the final forty-five (45) minutes of the school day unless the principal/designee determines it is an emergency or an excused event.”
As such, our office will be closed to releasing students during the final 45 minutes of school; after 2:15 p.m. on regular school days and 1:00 p.m. on Early Dismissal days.
Car Rider tags can be picked up during the mornings during the first week of school as you bring your child to school. After that period of time, parents will need to come to the office AFTER DISMISSAL to receive a Car Rider tag. Please be sure to have your ID.
BUS RIDER PARENTS
Buses are called upon arrival beginning at 3:00 PM. Please have siblings check for each other (once they are on the bus). All bus riding students are escorted to their bus by a staff member. Kindergarten students ARE NOT released off of the bus UNLESS there is an adult waiting to pick them up OR UNLESS you have marked another option on the Bus Riding Form. Otherwise, Kindergarten students will be brought back to the school to await parent pick up.
**Bus schedules could be off by 15-30 minutes during the first days of school.
WALKERS/BIKE RIDERS are dismissed at 3:00.
