Our goal is to safely and effectively dismiss all of our students as quickly as possible. As adults, it is important that we set a good example for our students and be mindful of the procedures the school has put forth. Below is a reminder of how our dismissal is to work. Your child's safety is our priority.
Please be advised of our morning drop off procedures:
Morning drop-off is in the front entrance by the cafeteria (parking lot located closest to 2920) is for students needing to purchase a breakfast, buses, students enrolled in our Early Childhood, Developmental, and Pre-Kindergarten classes. For all other students please use the gym carpool for morning drop off. Gym carpool in the morning is just one lane. Please have students exit your vehicle on the sidewalk only.
Please follow this procedure so we can begin our day productively with a strong academic focus! Thank you for your support.
The front entrance carpool (parking lot located closest to 2920) is for grades 4th, 5th and their younger siblings. If you are new to our school or new to this carpool, parents create four lanes behind the color cones placed in the parking lot. We will load students by the lane closest to the street first. Each car lane is identified by a different color cone which corresponds with the same color cone on the porch. Student names are called and asked to line up behind a certain color. Please have your child’s name displayed largely on the yellow car hanger provided at the beginning of the year on your rear view mirror.
The gym carpool (PM Pre-K, Kinder, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades); we will be running as we usually have in the past, however, the first 10 cars in each lane will have their student’s names projected on to the wall in order to line these cars up immediately. Once the first 10 cars of each line are loaded and pull away, we will call names as usual. The outside line (closest to the parking lot) is called starting with the first car with roughly 10-15 cars down. We then begin calling the cars for the inside line (closest to the school) from the back starting near the curved portion of the street.
It would be much appreciated if you have your child’s name displayed largely on the yellow car hanger provided at the beginning of the year on your rear view mirror. Should you need an extra car hanger or a new one, please let us know-we have plenty available!
As always, thank you so much for helping us keep safety and order at the top of our list-especially during high traffic times such as dismissal.
IT IS ILLEGAL TO USE A CELL PHONE OR TEXT WHILE IN THE SCHOOL ZONE.
THESE PROCEDURES ALLOW FOR A SAFE AND SPEEDY DISMISSAL.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.
