Arrival & Dismissal
- Always drop off and pick them up in the car rider line. Yes, it may take a few minutes, but the congestion across the street is hazardous when there are so many trying to pick up at once. Ms. King has asked parents NOT to drop off or pick up their child on her property...please be thoughtful and respect that this is her place of business.
- If your child is a car rider, the individual who is picking them up MUST have a card rider sign or they need to come into the front office to sign them out.
- Also, it is imperative that you DO NOT drop your child off in the bus rider line!
If your child is a walker, please remind your child to cross only at the cross walks. We have dedicated staff assigned to help ensure they are crossing safely.
RAINY DAY DISMISSAL:
If your child is normally a walker and it is a rainy day, be sure to have a plan in place for your child. On rainy days, if they need to be a car rider, that is fine; be sure that they are aware of the plan you have in place and send a note to us here at the front office so we can keep it on file. On days such as these, be sure you have a car rider sign for picking them up. If you don't have one, just contact the front office and we will get you one.
Again, the safety of your child is our first priority. If you have any questions or concerns about the procedures we have in place, please do not hesitate to contact
We have a long list of ways in which you can support our campus! Whatever your skill set, we can utilize you. If you are available for an hour or an entire day, PLEASE know we would LOVE for you to come in to help.
Please take a moment to fill out the online volunteer application so that a background check may be completed and you can be approved to help out. You can click HERE to find out more information.
Thank you in advance for your time & commitment!
