Arrival and Dismissal

Roosevelt Families,


** (AM) Cohort drop off time starts at 9:10am- (PM) Chorot drop off time starts at 1:22pm. Please do not pull into the bus loop before these times. Busses will need to pull all the way forward so they don't block the street**


**Please pull as far forward as possible when picking up students. Even if you pass your student we will send them safely to your car. If we are able to completely fill the pickup loop with cars before the light changes it will speed up the dismissal process greatly**


**As always your cooperation and patience will appreciated. The staff will continue to work hard to provide students with a safe and efficient arrival and dismissal process.**


General Information:

  • Parents will NOT be permitted to walk and gather on Roosevelt school grounds during arrival and dismissal. Parents must remain in their cars throughout the arrival and dismissal process. Students that are walkers must be dropped off at the designated locations listed below.

  • NO cars will be permitted to park in the Roosevelt parking lots OR at Santia Hall during arrival and dismissal time.

  • You may NOT assign your child to be a walker, unless he/she is in the local walking radius of Keego Harbor. All other students outside of the walking community are required to use the car line or bus transportation. Parents will not be allowed to meet walkers outside the building and walk off property to parked cars.

  • All exterior doors at Roosevelt will be assigned a color and grade levels will each be assigned to enter AND exit our building through these doors only.

  • Bus riders will be dropped off at Roosevelt, in the front loop.

  • Bus riders will be greeted by adults holding colored flags that match their luggage tag and assigned exterior door.

  • Roosevelt staff will be looking for your color coded student sign in your car window, to minimize person-to-person contact, when you reach the corner of Beland and Beachmont. He/She will communicate your child’s name to the classroom teachers, so they can get your student to the “ready position” in front of the building.

  • As you pull through the front car loop, your child will proceed to meet your car and you can exit back onto Cass Lake Road.

  • Your student may only be a walker, if you live in the walking community of Keego Harbor. To reduce the number of people in one space parents will not be allowed to park and exit cars to meet walkers outside of the building.

Tardy Students


We are respectfully requesting that students do their best to be on time, as the school day is already very short and teachers want to maximize their face-to-face time. If you do arrive late, you will need to park in front of the building and call the Roosevelt main office. Office staff will instruct you as to what to do next.
