Important Information

Parents, as we kick off our first week of having the entire school together each day, please remember that this means there will be twice as many car riders and walkers. Dismissal may take a bit longer than you are accustomed to and it is VERY important to follow procedures pertaining to student drop off and pick up.


  • If you are a parent that picks their student up to walk home, please remember that you should have on a mask when interacting with our staff. Also, please remember to socially distance with the other parents at the door while waiting for your child.


  • If you use the car rider line, please remember the following:
  1. Pull all the way up to the car in front of you. We do not drop off at the grade level specific doors. The children will walk to their assigned door.
  2. Please do not get out of the car to help your child in and out of the car. These are skills that should be practiced at home. If you must assist with a car seat, first get the child into the car and then pull all the way up into the front of the car rider line (ahead of the number 1 spot) to assist. This allows our car rider line to continue without delay.
  3. If you are at the school for drop off at 7:05, please do not allow your child(ren) to exit the car until you see an adult outside. This ensures student safety.
  4. Please note that although there are adults outside on duty, there is not a guarantee that someone will always be available to open your child's door for them to either enter or exit the vehicle. That is why it is important to practice at home.
