School Year Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures

At the elementary our #1 priority is safety and therefore want to share the process of pick up and drop off to assure we run a smooth and safe transition each school day.


Please review the following:


  • Parents are not allowed to drive into the bus loop for ANY reason between the hours of 7:00 am - 4:30 pm
  • All children MUST get in and out of the car door closest to the sidewalk thus not having to get out in traffic and walk around the car
  • No parking or pulling car up in front of the cross walk in the loop (signs will be posted)


Parents can drop off children at two locations:

- Down on Division Street from Elm Street to Main Street and allow children to walk up the sidewalk to the school doors OR

- In the loop by the front of the school but we ask that you stay in your car in order to keep the traffic flowing


Parents can pick up children in the following ways:

- Park in the parking lot or street and walk into building

OR

- Pull into pick up loop and wait for your child to be called out to come to the car

- If pulling up to the loop you must remain in car

- You must have a yellow pick up card posted in your car with your child's name on it to allow them to come out



****Children will not be allowed to be dropped off and/or enter the building before 7:15 am and must be picked up by 3:45 pm each day or your child will be sent to Kids CARE at your expense. I apologize if this inconveniences you but again, there is not supervision before or after these hours and safety is our #1 priority. Thank you for understanding.


Please see this video from a couple of years that might help you better understand how it works.
