Parent Pick-Up Procedures Two ways to utilize parent pick-up: Car Pick-Up Face to Face Pick-Up
Car Pick-Up Pick-up is at 2:45 AFTER all buses have left Stay in your car Pull your car all the way around the parking lot via the following: – West side for 2 nd Graders and Preschool (behind buses) – East side for Kindergarten and 1 st Graders
West Side-2 nd Graders & Preschool (Behind buses)
Car Pick-Up Lanes will continue to move forward and load students. Remain in single file line. You may need to park if your student is not ready. If your child has a sibling in 2 nd grade, they will all be with the 2 nd grade teacher.
Face-to-Face Pickup Face-to-Face Pickup will start at 2:45. If you prefer to park and walk up to the building you may use the crosswalks and an attendant will be there to direct traffic. Teachers will be in the same area each day. The teacher will make sure you are on the list and you can take your student.
Face-to-Face Pick-Up People picking up students will not be allowed to stand inside the school or in the front entry of the building. The only exception to this is during inclement weather. A staff member will hold a sign for parents to come in the foyer after busses dismiss.
Face-to-Face Pickup Inclement weather pick-up – Kindergarten – in Kindergarten hallway (by library) – 1 st Grade – in front hallway by office windows – 2 nd Grade – in front hallway across from nurse’s office. Please do not take your student without the teacher knowing.
What Can You Do to Help? Please share our dismissal procedures with anyone that picks up your child. Be patient. We have tried to address possible issues but realize there will still be some that might come up. If you have a concern, please contact me.
We are responsible for getting a third of our student population safely home through our Parent Pick-Up system. THANK YOU for your support and patience!
