Morning Drop Off Begins Thursday, August 22nd

Students can get dropped off at 7:30 AM as long as they have work to do or a book to read. We will also continue the walk and talk fitness walking before school. No students are allowed to be on the playground until 8:20 when there is staff supervision.

Student Lunches

To ensure that all lunches make it to your student(s) prior to their lunch, please try to make all attempts to get the lunches in the box with the students name clearly labeled at the main office by 11:15 AM.

Thank you!

Birthday Celebrations & Treats

The following practices remain in place this year regarding treats in school. Your cooperation will help ensure a safe and healthy environment for all children.


  • Edible birthday treats are not permitted at school. This policy expands the district's wellness program to promote student health and wellness. If treats are sent in, they will not be distributed.


Please know that each grade level has a unique way of making your child feel special on his or her birthday. Birthdays will also be recognized during the morning announcements for all students. We will continue to provide numerous opportunities for positive social experiences and celebrations throughout our curriculum and PBIS Program.

Dismissal Procedures

  • Students will be dismissed at 3:00 p.m. to the same classroom lines they line up at in the morning.
  • If your child is attending the YMCA Aftercare or the Berwyn Rec Aftercare, they will line up in our building to be dismissed to the staff members of the aftercare.
  • If you are picking up your child by car, please read carefully the directions for Parent Pick Up. Your child will be dismissed from the door on East Ave labeled 7W (closest to East Ave and 26th Street). You can pull up and stop to pick up your child. You may NOT park in this area, if your child is NOT outside you will need to circle around the block. We appreciate your attention to this in order to keep traffic moving and keep our students safe.
