Q. Where can I drop off my child and what is the procedure?
A. Students can be dropped off at the parking lot door. All cars will follow the lane around the outside of the parking lot. Please have your child on the passenger side of your vehicle. This will make it easier and safer for your child to get out. A staff member will be on the sidewalk to greet your children. Students should not arrive at school before 7:50. No one is available to supervise children before that time. Students that arrive late to school must be accompanied by an adult to sign them in at the main office.

A. Dismissal is 2 p.m. and students should be picked up no later than 2:05 p.m. Parents will pull up to the parking lot entrance door to pick up their children. (Same as the morning drop-off.) Please be prepared to show identification. Your child will be brought to your vehicle. A written note must be given to the classroom teacher at the start of the day when there is any change in your child's dismissal routine.
