Drop-off and Pick Up Procedure
Our bell rings and doors open at 8:00 am*. We encourage all students to arrive at 8:00 to unpack and start their day. Our doors close and instruction begins promptly at 8:15 am. Establishing a routine ensuring an on-time arrival encourages effective executive functioning strategies and gives students the opportunity to settle into their day before instruction begins.
Students arriving by car: Enter through the main parking lot on St. Roch Avenue and pull up to the first cone by the front doors labeled “Spot #1”. Our staff will be there to assist students with exiting the cars. Please be sure to pull all the way up to allow for adequate room in our parking lot. Parents should exit through the exit only lane and obey the traffic sign, turning right only. Our driveway on Hamilton Avenue is closed to through traffic and reserved for school bus access.
Students walking and biking to school can store bikes in the bike rack near our playground and enter through the front doors of the school. Please remember to retrieve bikes at the end of the school day, as our playground is open to the public after school. Walkers should use the access points around the field to arrive at the main doors. (DO NOT ALLOW WALKERS TO WALK THROUGH THE DRIVEWAY)
Our bell rings and dismissal begins at 2:45 PM. Bus students will be dismissed to the bus hallways. Kindergarten and first grade students will be escorted to their dismissal locations by their teachers. Car Pick up at the main doors begins at 2:45 PM, please follow staff instructions. Please be sure to pull forward to the cone labeled “Spot 1” so that we have adequate room in our parking lot. Our staff members will escort students to cars; there is no need to exit the vehicle. Please follow the directions of our staff members in order to maintain safety. We will not have students walking through the parking lot so you must pull up to the appropriate spots according to the traffic flow. All other students will be dismissed at the main entrance, escorted by teachers. Walkers and parent pick ups will be dismissed by the bike rack on the field. There will be signs labeled alphabetically by last name in order to support our staff to match you with your child during parent pick up dismissal.
