Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures

Drop Off

We will institute a temporary car-pool drop-off from the parking lot between the hours of 8:00 and 9:00. 

If you arrive and no one is visible to take your child, please call the school for someone to come and get your child from your car. 

You are asked to drive past the entrance, turn around, and pull up to the walkway that leads to the west front door. 

Someone will be there to take your child’s temperature (using a contactless thermometer) and the parent/guardian will be asked about any potential health symptoms within the child’s family and close contacts as discussed in Health Check

This information will be necessary BEFORE a child will be taken into school. When all checks are performed and the child is confirmed to be fever free, they will be taken from the back left side of the car, along with their disposable lunch and snacks, walked to the CHMS door, and passed to someone that will be waiting inside to take them downstairs, sign them in, have them wash hands, and move to their classroom. 

Please be patient as this process may take some time to coordinate. Students MUST arrive by 9:00 as by this point the instructional day has started. 

If you arrive after 9:00 due to a prearranged absence, please call the school for someone to come upstairs and go through this procedure with you. 

Pick-up for part day before lunch and after lunch will be similar to our full day pick-up procedures below. Please call the office when you arrive in the parking lot for upstairs pick-up arrangements. Please do not come into the school. 

Pick Up

Pick-up for full day students will be from 4:00 – 5:00. 

School will remain open until 5:30 for those occasional times when you need a little extra time. but we strongly urge you to pick up by 5:00 so teachers can concentrate on the extensive cleaning and preparing of the environment required by the CDC to be ready for the next day. 

Parents will be required to pull up outside the building in the same manner as morning drop-off and stay in their car. 

Please call the school when you arrive and someone will bring your child to you. 

Due to state safety laws, parents will need to get out of their car, put their child into the back seat, and buckle their child into their car seats. 

Staff members are NOT allowed to buckle children in. 

Please be patient as this process may take some time. Parents are urged to pick up before 5:00 and all children must be picked up by 5:30. We thank you for your understanding. 

Our intention is to minimize the number of adults that come into the building. If you need to pick up at any other time, such as for a doctor’s appointment, please call the office to make arrangements for someone to bring your child to you in the parking lot.
