“Arriving to school on time everyday helps students develop of the habit of being punctual with important commitments and helps them focus and prepare for the day ahead.”
The safety and close supervision of our students during arrival and dismissal is an important and necessary responsibility of our staff. Students are not to be dropped off and left unsupervised under any circumstances in any areas outside of the school. In the event an emergency arises, please notify our office staff for assistance.
To maintain security of the campus we are limiting entry access during arrival and dismissal times. During arrival times, we ask that parents drop students off their child at one of our 3 entrance doors (Main entrance of school, Bus entrance and primary entrance) which will be supervised by school personnel. We encourage all parents of students in grades 2nd – 5th to utilize the Vehicle Drop Off area where students enter the school by the primary building and report to the cafeteria for breakfast if they arrive before 8:15 a.m. or report the to line up in the PE Pavilion.
Arrival procedures are stipulated as follows:
- All students in Pre-K through first grade are to be dropped off in our school main entrance door and students will proceed to the cafeteria where they will be supervised.
- Teachers will pick up the students in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and First grade from the cafeteria grade between 8:05 a.m. to 8:10 a.m.
- If a Pre-Kindergarten through 1st grade student arrives after 8:10 a.m. parents may drop off the child at the gate by the playground, however parents may not enter the school building.
- Students in Second through Fifth grades will be supervised on the PE Pavilion. Teachers will pick up their students between 8:20 a.m. to 8:25 a.m. from the PE Pavilion.
Inclement Weather Drop-off (morning arrival):
During days with light rain, all student will report to the cafeteria.
We ask that parents do not walk through the staff parking lot or enter with their vehicles. This creates an unsafe situation for students and parents while teachers are entering the parking lot. Please remind your child not to wait by their classroom for the teacher in the morning unsupervised.
Students should not be in school earlier than 7:30 a.m. Free breakfast is served at 7:30 a.m. Students arriving after the teacher has picked up the students from the cafeteria are to be dropped off by the parent in the front main entrance where students can walk directly to class, staff will be staggered along the hallways to assist students as needed.
Classroom instruction begins promptly at 8:20 a.m. for pre-Kindergarten through first grade and at 8:35 a.m. for second through fifth grades. If a student arrives to class after the bell (8:20 a.m. for Pre-K, K, 1st or 8:35 a.m. for 2nd – 5th), he/she is considered tardy and must report to the office for a tardy pass.
