STUDENT DROP-OFF / PICK-UP PROCEDURES
Our priority remains student safety. We need your help and cooperation for a safe and smooth drop-off or pick-up. Please be familiar with our procedures.
Please remember that the car drop-off line is a cell phone free zone. For the safety of your child as well as other children and teachers, please refrain from talking on your cell phone while you are in the line.
ARRIVAL / DROP-OFF
Children should not be dropped off at school before 7:30 a.m. Prior to this time, there is no supervision.
Students should be dropped off at the designated drop off zone located at the rear of the building near the gymnasium.
Please loop around the circle and pull your vehicle to the end of the drop off circle.
Students may go directly to their homeroom or to the cafeteria to pick up breakfast.
Before 7:30 a.m. continue to use the right lane to allow for teachers and staff to arrive in a timely manner so that teachers can get in the building and prepare for greeting your child.
At 7:30 a.m. traffic may use 2 lanes. This is to allow for traffic to move off of Berkeley Dr. and for closure of the gate.
Please stay in the car line and do not pass other vehicles.
Please stay in your car and allow your child to enter the building under the supervision of the administrators and safety patrols on duty.
Front gate closes at 8:00 a.m., after which the tardy bell will ring. If you arrive after the gate is closed, please park and escort your children to the front office. All students arriving at this time must be signed in. For their safety, children should never be unsupervised in the parking area.
Remember that the handicap spaces are reserved for cars with a handicap tag.
Parking in a designated fire lane may result in a fine. Please avoid the red curb!
For safety purposes, parents should have a visitor's pass when entering the building.
If you have items to deliver to the classroom, leave them in the office. We will be happy to deliver them for you.
DISMISSAL / PICK-UP
If you wish to pick up your child before 2:15 p.m. dismissal, you should sign your child out before 2:00 p.m.
If there is a change of dismissal plans for your child/children, please notify the school in writing prior to 1:30 p.m. the day of the change. This ensures that we are able to deliver the proper information to your child/children before dismissal.
Please inform the office and teacher if there are persons who are not allowed to pick up your child. Pertinent custody documents will be kept on file in the child's school record.
The school-provided hangtag, with the number assigned to your child/children should be displayed in the front window, prior to entering the school campus and remain displayed until your child/children enter(s) the car.
Dismissal for K-2nd grade only car rider students begins at 2:15 p.m. in rear of the building.
Dismissal for 3rd-5th grade car rider students and their younger K-2nd siblings begins at 2:25 p.m.
Dismissal for walkers begins at 2:20 p.m.
Drivers should only use the right (outside) lane when arriving on campus to pick up students.
The staff member running the Driveline will be in the left lane. You could be redirected by this staff member to enter the middle of the parking lot if you are early for 3rd-5th grade dismissal.
Please remain in the right lane for exiting after student pick-up, unless directed by staff, then proceed cautiously to the left lane.
Staff members will be on duty to assist students who are being picked up and will supervise each child to his/her car.
Parents who are picking-up should remain in their vehicles at all times.
