Welcome to Marlton! Some of you may have attended Pre-K at Marlton last year, but many of us are new to the school. We will hold orientation for kindergarten and their parents on Friday, August 25, 2023, at 9:30 am. This is the time to meet the teachers, visit the classroom and learn about the kindergarten program.
The school doors open at 7:30 for students to enter the building, walk to class, and have the option to eat breakfast served in the classroom. The morning announcements begin at 7:45 am. Instruction begins after the morning announcements. If you are transporting your scholar to school, please drive to the lower parking lot, kiss them goodbye, and drive off. For your safety and the safety of the children, please do not stop on Old Colony Drive to drop off your student. Take the time to drop off at the lower parking lot where our Magical Mustang Staff will receive them.
If your child is a bus rider, please ensure they have the bus number written on a card inside their bookbag and know their bus number. During the first 2-3 weeks of school. please be patient with transportation. The drivers are learning the routes; therefore, the pick-up and drop-off times may be later. Please ensure your scholars are at the bus stop at least 15 minutes early. At dismissal, allow for traffic as the times are approximate.
If your child is a car rider, this means your child will walk down the steps on the side of the building, stand and line and enter your vehicle once you pull up to the front of the car rider line. Please do not park in the parking lot and walk up to pick up your child. Drivers are to remain in their cars.
If your car is a walker, your child will leave the front door to their designation.
If your child goes to a daycare, they will be dismissed once the daycare arrives.
Please be patient the first few weeks as we perfect our dismissal routine. Thank you for being so cooperative.
