Car Rider Numbers

As we approach the end of the school year, please review the following rules for car rider pickup at the end of the day to ensure student safety at all times:


  • When picking up your child as a car rider, please pull into the parking spots in the middle of the parking lot. You MUST park in a spot in the upper parking lot. You MAY NOT park in the grass or in the lower parking lot designated for staff.
  • If you have not registered in the main office, do not have a number, or forgot your number provided by the main office, please be prepared to show identification at dismissal.
  • Staff members will be taking no more than two numbers to ensure that students are meeting up with the appropriate person who is picking them up.
  • Between the hours of 7:40am and 3:00pm the playground is to be used only by elementary school students. As per Board Policy #7513-Recreational Use of Playgrounds, “during the day when school is in session, including summer sessions, the playground cannot be used by community residents.” Please wait until all students are dismissed to use the playground. You may not park in the car rider parking lot to use the playground until after 3:00pm.

NO SCHOOL-May 16 and May 27

There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, May 16, 2016. This a change on the school calendar as we did not use all the snow days that were built into the school calendar.


There is NO SCHOOL, as planned and listed on the school calendar, on Friday, May 27, 2016.

Beach Day

Our students have earned 20,000 paws as part of our School-Wide Positive Behavior Support Program! We will celebrate with a Beach Party on Friday, May 13th! Students and staff can wear school-appropriate beach clothing. Some examples are Hawaiian shirts and dresses, summer shorts, sun glasses, and hats. Please do not wear flip flops or bathing suits. We will also celebrate at the end of the day with an ice cream treat, donated by Shop Rite of Greenwich Township.
