Drop off and Pick Up - Safety Reminders

A few reminders to help keep all of us safe as we drop off and pick up students each day.

~ When dropping off in the front parking lot, pull up towards the bike racks before stopping. Please do not drop your child right in front of the 800 building, by the office doors.. This is causing some serious backup issues into the street and through the intersection.

~ Be sure to have all of your child's things ready to go so they can safely and quickly exit your car on the side where the sidewalk is. If you need more time to get your child's things together, please park in the parking lot and walk your child across the crosswalk.

~Any person walking students up to the gate should have a mask on.

~After school come as close to your child's pick up time as possible.

~No u-turns in the middle of the street if you are dropping off or picking up on Sagebrush.

~The speed limit around the entire school during school hours is 15mph.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we bring students back onto campus and get back into a routine.

Five Steps for Self-Regulation

  1. I Am: noticing that you’ve been triggered into an upset state. An adult might say to the child, “Your face is going like this” (makes angry face), or “your arm is going like this” (shows clenched fist).

  2. I Calm: taking deep breaths (if an adult is there, they can breathe deeply with the child).

  3. I Feel: naming the feeling. An adult might say, “You seem angry” or “You seem disappointed”, “You wanted to play outside”, or “You wanted to stay up later.”

  4. I Choose: selecting a strategy to change the feeling to a desired state. This might be taking a walk, hugging a stuffed animal, petting their dog or cat, sitting in a safe space.

  5. I Solve: solving the problem that triggered the feeling.

Taking your child through these steps, with your guidance, will help them continue to learn to self-regulate. Eventually, they will go through them on their own.
