For increased student safety and social distancing


Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

To ensure social distancing and accommodate the beginning of school (7:45 a.m.), we have added an additional drop off spot (see graphic below). When students enter the building they will go directly to their classroom. Please do not drop off students before 7:30 AM.

In addition at the end of each day students will be dismissed directly from their rooms. In order to do this we need your help! Below are our procedures for picking up your child. Please do not walk up to the doors of the school to pick up your child when children are exiting the building.

Car Riders will be dismissed at 3:00 PM: NO CHANGES to LOCATION! All car riders will be picked up by the last doors on the East side of the school. Everyone must remain in their cars. Parents will not be able to walk up to the back door and show their cards. Each family will receive two car tags. Additional or replacement car tags will be $3.00 each. These will be ready for pick up on August 21st (see Virtual Open House graphic below for details).

Bus Riders will be dismissed at 3:00 PM: The buses will pick up and drop off in the back of the building.

Please help us keep everyone safe by following social distancing guidelines.

New tags will be ready for distribution on August 21st. Those not picked up on August 21st will be given to students on the first day they come to school. After that time, all parents must use the new tags. Each child will be assigned a number which will be placed on the tag. We cannot group non-familial students who are riding together on one tag because the student's names will display in each teacher's classroom. Please call the office if someone is coming to pick up your child. They will need to bring ID and follow the directions for Early Check In/Out. The car tags will serve for this purpose as well.

All parents or guardians must display the new car tags when they enter the school driveway. Please put them on your rear view mirror so the staff person sending numbers to the classroom can see them easily.

Starting the second week of school, we will only be using the new car tags like one in the picture below. ANYONE WHO COMES TO PICK UP A STUDENT WITHOUT THE NEW CAR TAG MUST GO TO THE FRONT OFFICE. A SCHOOL EMPLOYEE CAN CHECK YOUR ID AND GO PRINT A NEW TAG FOR YOU. All available staff will be working the dismissal line, so they may not be available right away to go get a new tag for you. This will delay the time it takes for you to pick up your child, so please remember your tags.

Additional or replacement car tags will be $3.00 each.
