Half Day E-Notice

Half Day School - August 18, 2021

Back to School Reminders

On Thursday, Aug. 19, please send your child to school with extra child-sized masks and a filled water bottle. We encourage your child to take the school bus as traffic can be heavy during pick up and drop off times and can back up onto surrounding roads. If you drive your child to/from school, please observe the following procedures.

Riding the bus? Please re-check Unified Classroom for possible bus stop changes. Here are directions on how to find the UC information. Also, please familiarize yourself with busing procedures.

Directions for Driving to/from School

Please follow these map directions for picking up and dropping off students.

Morning drop off begins at 8:40 a.m. The safety of our students is our top priority and your cooperation is greatly appreciated with the following safety procedures.

  • PULL FORWARD: When dropping off, please pull forward as far as possible, and do not stop at the front door. There may not be cars behind you when you arrive, but a line can form quickly.

  • EXIT CURBSIDE: All students should EXIT CURBSIDE for safety reasons. Cars can be passing through on your left as you are dropping off. If your student is unable to exit curbside, you should PARK in a designated parking lot and walk your child to the sidewalk in front of the school.

  • SIDEWALK: Students can safely exit the car curbside when you have reached the front sidewalk. Do not exit earlier.

  • ENTRY: Third-grade students should enter the main entrance - Door A and walk straight to their classrooms. Fourth- and fifth-grade students should enter through Door B, also accessible by the front sidewalk, and walk straight to their classrooms.

Pick up begins at 3:30 p.m. upon student dismissal.

  • If you are picking up your child after school, please enter the front drive and join the carpool line by following the designated traffic flow pattern on the traffic flow diagram below.

  • Please stay in your car for pick up and follow the direction of teachers and staff outside during this time.

  • Please remember not to use your cell phone in our school zones; all cell phone use is prohibited while driving in a school zone.

  • To alleviate traffic congestion at the end of the school day, we respectfully ask all families to use the pick up line to keep the flow of traffic in motion as best possible.

  • Please consider carpooling if your family chooses to opt out of district transportation.
