Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

 

The goal for establishing student drop off procedures is two-fold: the first goal is to preserve optimum conditions for instructional time for students and teachers. The second goal is to insure a safe environment for all students, kindergarten through grade three. To help this happen we have designed a drop-off and pick-up plan. Please follow the directions that are available in the main office and cooperate with our staff as they guide you to the correct location.

 

Student Drop-off Procedures
 
School begins at 8:00AM with drop off beginning at 7:30AM

 
Student Pick-up Procedures

School dismisses at 3:30 pm for all students.

Students who participate in the after-school program will be dismissed at this time to move to the designated area for the after school activities.  Families of students who will not participate in the after-school program are asked to sign-up for their preferred afternoon pick-up time, 3:00–3:15 or 3:15– :30.  Students will be released to authorized designees as the designees arrive inside the building.  During this 30-minute pick-up time, the students will quietly complete Student Diaries, gather items to go home, and listen to the teacher read orally.

For the child’s safety, a student will not be released to any person other than the parents or an authorized designee. If the person coming to pick up the child is not designated on the emergency card or “release of students” form, identity of the new person must be confirmed by written authorization. Telephone authorization will be accepted only in the case of an emergency.
