ELEMENTARY ARRIVAL and Dismissal PROCEDURES

Arrival Procedures

Student safety is our #1 priority!

Students Who Ride A Bus

When the bus arrives at 7:30 a.m., students will exit the bus and go directly to their classrooms. Students will walk on sidewalks, entering the school building through the west/main entrance of the school, using the doors by the office.

Students Who are Dropped Off at Arrival

Drivers must obey all traffic safety signs and directions. Cell phones should not be used during drop off. Drive slowly and watch for children. Students may be dropped off at 7:30 a.m.! Students who are dropped off will utilize the designated student drop off area north of/behind the school. Elementary students cannot be dropped off on the south side of the building, next to the highway. Given restrictions for health and safety, parents and visitors are not allowed inside the building, so walking students to classrooms is not possible at this time.

There are two options for drop off:

1. Parents/Caregivers will pull into the lane heading east designated for drop off, next to the yellow curbing, pulling all the way forward to the northeast door. A yellow line and curb mark the areas where students may be let out of vehicles. This is the area where staff monitor safety and provide supervision. Drivers must remain with their vehicle in these lanes. Students will exit the vehicle on the side closest to the building and use the designated walkway, never walking in front of, behind or between cars. Students must walk in the area designated as a walkway, maintaining social distancing, and entering through the northeast doors of the building. As students enter the building, a staff member will welcome them to school and assist them with the use of hand sanitizer. Students will proceed down the right-hand side of the hallway to their classroom.

2. Parents/Caregivers who enter from the east/heading west, in the street lane closest to parking, will pull forward, stopping right before the crosswalk with the signage for student drop off. Students will get out of the vehicle on the side next to the parking areas, never walking in front of, behind or between cars. Students will wait behind the sign, maintaining social distancing, until the crossing guard escorts them safely across the roadway and into the school building. As students enter the building, a staff member will welcome them to school and assist them with the use of hand sanitizer. Students will proceed down the right-hand side of the hallway to their classroom.
