  • Arrival and Dismissal

    We are asking that in the parent pickup/dropoff loop:

    - Please refrain from using cell phones.  Please hang up the phone prior to entering the area where students are exiting vehicles.  

    -If your child exits from the passenger side of the vehicle, please have them cross IN FRONT OF YOUR VEHICLE to make sure your child clears your vehicle before moving.

    - Encourage student independence in buckling and unbuckling, especially for preschool and Kindergarten.

    -If you are picking up your child, please keep your eyes forward watching the vehicle in front of you and not the children waiting for the vehicles.  We have had several close calls with fender benders.

    -As we get to learn about your children and vehicle, please have your yellow placard up until your child is in your vehicle.  This helps to expedite the process.
