Safety during Arrival/Dismissal

During arrival and dismissal, you can help us keep students safe by unloading and loading students on the right side (passenger side) of the vehicle only. It's easy to forget that Houston Street is a city street. We try our best to block traffic with barricades but it isn't always successful. Talk as a family and let the students help problem-solve on ways to keep everyone safe while loading/unloading on the passenger side only during arrival and dismissal.

The exception to this rule would be preschool car riders. The PreK teachers will bring PreK students to your vehicle, and they can be loaded on the driver's side of the vehicle.

We also understand that the occasional "walk-up" to the school to get students at dismissal is expected. If it is your everyday dismissal procedure - we prefer that you pick up students in your vehicle. More times than not you will have to cross through traffic with students to reach your car or destination and this creates a safety hazard.
