Car riders and walkers may enter the building at 8:30. School begins at 9:00 a.m. We do not have supervision for students before 8:30 a.m. Car riders, please enter the parking lot entrance to the school and pull up to the curb and stay in the car. For safety, we need to maintain a single line of cars along the curb. Parents will not be permitted to walk their students into the school. We will have staff outside and inside to direct students to their classrooms. Bus riders will enter through the bus doors, as we have traditionally entered. Breakfast is available to all students. Tardy bell rings at 9:00 AM.
If you plan to pick up your student, please enter the parking lot and stay in your car, in the pick up line, along the curb. We will have staff to walk with our prek and kindergarten students out to the cars. This will take some time to become efficient, please be patient as we develop this routine with our students. It is helpful if you have a large sign on your passenger door with your child’s name and grade level so that we can easily see the names to call. If the traffic gets stopped at the light, please feel free to park in the parking lanes nearest to Karl Road, and then walk to the sidewalk. We have a teacher on the sidewalk calling names. We ask that you social distance on the sidewalk.
Cars are not allowed in the bus lane. This lane is only for buses and Day Care vehicles. We appreciate your cooperation in making sure that students are safe at dismissal.
Please call the office before 2:30 p.m. if you are changing your child’s dismissal plan. We deliver messages to the classrooms between 2:30 and 3:00. During dismissal we cannot answer the phones because we are all working to make sure that students are dismissed safely and efficiently. Some students are arriving by car in the morning, but expected to ride the bus home in the evening, or by bus in the morning but car rider in the afternoon. Please communicate all dismissal changes. If a student is on the bus list, it is possible that the student will be sent home on the bus unless the parent has communicated to the office or teacher that the student is a car rider.
Late Arrivals/Early Dismissal
If your child is late to school, please escort to the main office. Your child will be signed in by the front office. For early dismissal a valid id is required for student pick up, and your child will only be released to adults listed on Infinite Campus. If you are sending someone else not listed on Infinite Campus to pick up your child, please call the office ahead of time to let us know, and make sure the individual has a valid id.
