• Arrival and Dismissal

    ***Please be patient during arrival and dismissal especially during the first few weeks of school while children are learning new routines.***
    Arrival Time
    All students are to be in the school by the 8:30am bell (2nd morning bell). If your student is unable to make it into the classroom before the 8:30am bell, he/she will be sent to the front office to get a tardy. 
    Arrival and Dismissal
    Drop off locations and areas to enter the school have changed for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please make note of the changes.  Extended Day drop off and pickup will take place in the front office.  There will be NO entry at the back gate by the Cafeteria starting on or after the first day of school.  Please look at the maps and visuals below carefully to look for drop off, walk up and pick up locations.  Thank you for your grace and courtesy as we implement these changes for the safety of all of our staff, students and families.  Note that ALL entry doors will be CLOSED at 8:25.

    Car Riders/Parent Pick Up
    • Students cannot be on campus until 8:00 a.m. unless they are enrolled in Morning Extended Day.
    • Do not park inside the bus loop or drop students off in the bus loop. This may cause disruption in the bus schedule not only for our school, but other schools as well.
    • Please drop your child off at the front of the school.  You will need to pull all the way to the front of the drop off zone.  If your child is not ready to exit the car at that time or if you child is not able to exit the car without your assistance, please pull around and park in a parking spot to avoid a backup in the drop off line.

    • Please do not park your car in the car loading zone.  If you wish to walk your child in, please park in the designated parking areas.
