Parent Pickup and Dropoff Info

Longbranch 17.18

First Day vs. Subsequent Days

Please, please, please have your child go home on day 1 exactly as they would go home every other day during the year. This significantly cuts back on the confusion with an already very confusing day for children and adults. This is not mandated, but highly recommended.

In General

You are WELCOME to drop your children off at school each morning by 8:40am. After 8:40am, they will be considered tardy and you will need to park in the front lot, walk them in, and sign in. Late arrivals do count toward perfect attendance and/or parent notes.

Children may be picked up from school by a parent or other designee. Parents are admitted to the cafeteria at 3:35pm via the side Children Inc. entrance. All pickups occur in the school's cafeteria. Students are signed out of school, parents are not signed in to the cafeteria. This means the signing for each child occurs when the child is in your custody.

PARENT DROPOFF is a one lane endeavor. These cones signal you to not pass, even if the line is moving slowly. When the volume of people increases, the line lengthens. Please plan accordingly. Passing cars in this lane is not safe for our children or families.
