Laura B. Sprague School - October 4, 2020
Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures
Drop Off Procedures AM K-2
AM Kindergarten, First, and Second-Grade student drop-off is 7:55 a.m. - 8:10 a.m. Drop off is located in the EAST parking lot. Enter the lot from Reliance Ln.
Make a right into the parking lot, pull forward to the drop-off lane. Staff will be wearing bright colored vests and will hand signal when to pull up in line. When you arrive at the drop-off line, put your car into park, a staff member will open the door, your child should be able to independently exit the car, and walk to the sidewalk.
Staff members will then hand-signal for you to proceed forward to exit. Please stay in a line, practice patience, and DO NOT PASS other cars. The line will then exit on to Reliance making a right hand turn. Parents of children that are not independent with seat belts, or are in a car seat, will need to park legally and escort your child to the side walk.
Students who are dropped off after 8:10 a.m. are considered late and will need to be walked to the front doors, and signed-in using a QR code located on the outside front door of Sprague.
Dismissal Procedures PM K-2
Students will be picked up in the Pick-Up Drop Off lane beginning at 2:35 p.m. Parents should enter Sprague’s East parking lot from Reliance Ln and pull up to the pick-up area. Staff will be wearing brightly colored vests. Have your child’s name placard in the passengers side windshield.
Dismissal will start at 2:35 PM. We ask that students who have siblings, stand in line with their siblings so that they can be loaded into their cars together. Please put your car in park.
A staff member will open the door and load your child(ren) into the car. Staff members will then hand-signal for you to proceed forward to exit.
Please stay in a line, practice patience, and DO NOT PASS other cars. The line will then exit on to Reliance making a right hand turn. Parents of children that are not independent with seat belts, or are in a car seat, will need to park legally and pick-up your child from the parking lot.
Walking and Biking to School
Children are allowed to bike and walk to school if they live in the neighborhood. We ask that people who are picking up their children wear a mask and socially distance themselves. Students who are being pick-up and walking or bike riding, will also be picked up on the sidewalk adjacent to the east parking lot.
Early Childhood Pick Up & Drop Off Procedures
Parents will begin to drop-off Early Childhood students at Sprague’s front doors at 8:15 a.m. Please park your car legally in either the east or south parking lot. Walk your child to the front doors of Sprague. Students can enter at 8:15 where staff will be at the doors to greet students. Parents will also park and walk to the front doors at 10:30 AM to pick-up students. Do not use the bus lane for drop-off or pick-up. This is for bus use only.
