Arrival and Dismissal

Arrival: 8:20

Kindergarten students will enter the building through door #2. Grades 1-3 will enter through door #5.


Reminders: Parking is only allowed on the playground side of Howard Avenue! Please cross at the crosswalk for safety!

Drop off is permitted on the school side of Howard Avenue, however, you must have the students on the passenger side of the car for curbside drop off. Please do not hold up traffic to watch your child enter the building.

Dismissal: 3:10

All students will exit at the rear of the building. The staff will only release students to a person listed on the the Pupil Supervision After School Dismissal Plan. If this form was not returned on the first day of school, your child will be dismissed to the main office and only the parent or guardian will be authorized to sign the child out.

We are looking forward to another great year at Watchung School!
