NEW Dismissal and Arrival Procedures

Arrival, Dismissal, Parking Lot, Oh My!

We are so excited for our new bus lot and parking lot! Please see below for our new procedures, pictures and a video explaining our new parking lot arrival and dismissal procedures. Please be patient and flexible as we implement these new procedures. Our best laid plans may have some hiccups and need adjustments. We will work through those together. It's going to be messy, so we appreciate your patience. Please watch the video below first and then read through the new procedures. You can also access the video on our website at www.hsd.k12.or.us/lenox


Thank you!

Lenox Arrival Procedures


For safety reasons and due to our new bus lot and pickup/dropoff/parking lot, we are instituting some changes in our procedures and routines for dropping off your child at arrival time. Students may arrive at school no earlier than 7:15. The tardy bell is at 7:45. Please have your students here before 7:45 so they are not marked tardy and miss valuable instructional time.


When dropping off your child:


  • Please pull as far forward as you can in the drop off lane and watch for directions from staff on duty to either stop or keep pulling forward.

  • Please remain in your vehicle.

  • Have students exit on the passenger side of the vehicle onto the sidewalk.

  • Students will then head on the sidewalk to the front entrance of the school.

  • Once you have dropped off your student, you may either proceed forward and out of the lot or merge into the thru lane and out of the lot.

  • If the drop off lane is full, use the thru lane to circle back around.


If you park and walk your child into the building, please use caution when crossing to the sidewalk.

Lenox Dismissal Procedures

For safety reasons and due to our new bus lot and pickup/drop off/parking lot, we are instituting some changes in our procedures and routines for picking up your child at dismissal time. Dismissal is at 2:05 on MTThF and at 1:35 on W.


If you walk to campus or park and walk up to pick up your child, please read below for the location you need to go to (see pictures below).

  • Kindergarten: front of school

  • First Grade: front of school

  • Second Grade: front of school

  • Third-Sixth Grades: front of school on the south end


In the past, many parents waited at the entrance of the bus lot for their students. Teachers would then release your child to you in that area (see picture below). This area WILL NOT be used for that anymore.

  • Parents must come to the specific location for their child’s grade level and check in with the teacher, so your child can be released.

  • Please do not put our teachers in a compromising position by trying to take your child from them while they are bringing their line of students out.

  • You must come to the designated location to get your child. This is for the safety of our students.



If you pick up your child in a car, please make sure to watch the video and read below for directions.

  • Your child will be waiting along the car pick up lane located in the south parking lot. The north lot is for buses only.

  • You must pull up as far as possible in the pick up lane.

  • You must remain in your vehicle.

  • Once your child is securely in your car, you may either proceed forward and out of the lot or merge into the thru lane and out of the lot.

  • If the pick up lane is full, please use the thru lane to circle back around.

Volunteering

Don't forget that if you would like to volunteer in the classroom, for school events, field trips, etc. you need to fill out the district volunteer application. Please do this as soon as possible so you are cleared to volunteer.
