The First Day of School is August 16, 2022!
Morning Drop Off / Afternoon Pick Up
Drop off begins at 8:15am. (There is no supervision prior to 8:15am)
Before School Line Up Locations
Grade Kindergarten, 1st , 2nd by door 6 and 7 and enter door 5
Grade 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th on the basketball courts and enter door 4
**Bus Riders will line up by Door 1.
After School Pick Up
Students will exit the door they enter.
Our teachers need your child's pick up information. Please share with them whether your child is a parent pick up, walker, turnabout pick up, Boys & Girls club or older sibling picking up.
If you are driving your child to or from school, you must use the turnabout on Streamwood Boulevard. Drivers must stay in their cars. Staff will escort your child to their line up location. There is no parking in the turnabout.
Reminder--The staff parking lot is for staff. No parent parking or drop off is allowed.
We encourage all our parents to walk their child to school on the first days to see the traffic and better understand how drop off and pick up work.
** In order for our process to work, it takes patience. **
At roughly 8:45 am on Tuesday, August 16, all students and staff will gather around the flag pole in front of Ridge Circle. We will start the year will the pledge of allegiance, our paw law pledge, and a few words from our principal. We will also welcome our execute director, Mrs. Winters as our special guest.
All our parents and families are welcome to join us! Come out and cheer us on!
