HOW CAN AVALON EAGLES BE SAFE, RESPECTFUL, AND RESPONSIBLE IN MORNING CARLINE?

  • By driving slowly and carefully through the line
  • Remembering that kindergarten families (many of whom are new to Avalon) will begin dropping off their young students Tuesday, August 31 - please be patient
  • Dropping off no earlier than 8:30 a.m. (if you need to drop your student off earlier, please look into the Latchkey Program)
  • Having backpack and mask on and student ready to exit the vehicle independently on the school side of the vehicle
  • Holding questions for staff to a minimum to keep the carline moving (calling the school or emailing specific teacher or staff member before or after drop-off instead)
  • Arriving to school before 9:00 a.m. to avoid being tardy. If a student arrives after 9:00 a.m., he or she will be considered tardy and will need to push the call button (can be out of reach for small children) to the left of the door on the outside wall to be let inside. Students who are tardy will need to stop at the window to give their name and get a slip to take to class.

WE SHARE BECAUSE WE CARE

Did you know there are 16 languages spoken amongst our Avalon families?! Nearly half of our student body is bilingual and represent a variety of cultures.
