For the safety of students, please drop-off according to procedures. Cars dropping off in the morning must form a single file line and drop students off at the curb. Parents must stay in their vehicles. In order to move traffic efficiently, have your student ready to depart the vehicle once it has come to a complete stop. If you plan to walk your student to the door or classroom, you must park in a designated parking place.

Please do not drop students off from the street or across the street in order to bypass the traffic in the loops. 


Parents must stay in their vehicles. Please do not park at neighborhood businesses and walk across traffic to pick up your students. Cars are subject to being towed. Students will only be loaded at the curbs. Display your school issued name tag prominently in your front window. The duty teacher can call for your child before you reach the front and this will speed up the loading. Once you are at the front of the line the student will then be allowed to load. Students will not be allowed to walk through traffic to reach a parent. Students not picked up by 4:05 through the line will be taken to the offices. Grades 2-3 in the Lower Office & 4-5 in the Upper Office. In the event of inclement weather, students will be kept inside the buildings until their parents move to the front of the line.

Student Check In-Out Procedures:
If a student arrives late, parents must walk the student into the office and check him/her in with the secretary before he/she proceeds to class. When checking a student out early, the Parent/Guardian (stated in file) will be required to provide identification before the student will be released. We appreciate your understanding. Interruption of the instructional day is disruptive for your child and others in class; therefore, an interruption to call a student from class may disrupt the learning process for all students, so we ask that it be done only as needed. However, at times it is unavoidable and completely understood. Remember- 3 early pick-ups and/or 3 tardies will equal one absence. Please remember elementary students will NOT be checked out after 3:30p.m. If you arrive after this time, you will be asked to remain in the office until 3:50p.m. before leaving the building. This is a policy in place for the safety of our students and staff. No students will be called out of class prior to the arrival of the parent/guardian.
