Building opens at 7:50 AM. Students should be in the classroom by 8:05 AM. Dismissal time is 3:05 PM.
MORNING DROP-OFF: Students may be dropped off at the bus ramp in the morning between 7:50 and 8:05. Students must exit the vehicle when you are in the BLUE zone, no matter where you are in that zone. Please do not hold your child in the car while you wait to pull up to the front. Please do not park in the bus ramp area and be sure to pull forward before stopping. The bus ramp area is one lane only. Do not pass other vehicles in this area. Students are NOT to be dropped off on the street, at stop signs, or in the front parking lot. Parents (or adult) MUST escort children to and across the designated crosswalk, which must be used so that we can ensure proper traffic flow and safety. After 8:10, you must bring your child in the front office to sign them in. STUDENTS MAY NOT BE DROPPED OFF BEFORE 7:50 AS THERE IS NO ADULT SUPERVISION PRIOR TO 7:50 AND STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON CAMPUS WITHOUT PROPER SUPERVISION. PARENTS OF STUDENTS DROPPED OFF EARLY WILL BE CONTACTED TO RETURN TO THE SCHOOL TO GET THEM.
WALKERS: Your child is a WALKER if you park and walk up to get your child or if they walk home on their own. Walkers are dismissed out the south door by the bus ramp and will wait under that awning. The side strip of parking (at bus ramp) is for staff parking only. Parents MUST park in the church parking lot across from the designated crosswalk. You MUST walk with your child to and across the designated crosswalk. For safety, children are not allowed to cross the street alone or with another student. If you do walk up to get your child after school, you must wait outside the building for dismissal so the teacher can concentrate on each child’s individual needs.
CAR RIDERS: Your child is a CAR RIDER if you drive through the car pick-up line. Car riders are dismissed out the north door by the bus ramp where they will sit until you pull up and their name is called. Please wait until all buses have left before driving through the bus ramp. Children who have not been picked up by 3:15 will be brought to the office area to have parents called. We ask that you please be here on time for afternoon pick-up. Late pick-ups will be addressed by the principal.
BUS RIDERS: Students that ride a bus are to report immediately to their assigned buses. Students will not be allowed to ride a bus home with another student without written permission from parents of BOTH students and approval from the administration. The note will be given to the bus driver after the principal has signed it. This permission can only be granted on rare occasions and if there is adequate space on the bus.
CHECK-OUTS: You must check your child out of school in the front office. Children can only be released to adults listed on the registration form (driver’s license is required). NO CHECK-OUTS WILL BE ALLOWED AFTER 2:30. All check-outs are entered into the attendance system as an afternoon tardy or half-day absence depending on the check out time – see absences #1. Just like in the morning, all late arrivals or early check-outs are counted even if it’s just a couple minutes. Truancy will automatically receive a report after every 5 tardies/absences.
STUDENTS MUST GO HOME THE SAME WAY EACH DAY UNLESS YOU SEND A SIGNED NOTE TO SCHOOL STATING OTHERWISE. PLEASE DO NOT CALL AND REQUEST A CHANGE OF WAY HOME. YOU MAY FAX A LETTER TO 549-6313 IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS BEFORE 2:00 PM.
