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 8:15 and 8:45. If you arrive within these times and no one is visible to take your child, please call the school for someone to come and get your child from your car. If you need to drop off between 8:00 and 8:15, please call the school and someone will come up to get your child.

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 above. 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 school bag, disposable lunch and snacks, and walked into the school, They will be signed in, asked to wash hands, and moved 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 Part Day:  Pick-up for Part-Day before lunch and after lunch students will be 11:15 or 12:30.  The process is 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 if no one is waiting for you. Please do not come into the school.

Pick Up Full Day: Pick-up for full day students will be from 4:00 – 5:00.  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 if you arrive before 4:50 and someone will bring your child to you. Between 4:50 and 5:00 children will be waiting upstairs for a smooth pick-up procedure. 

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. In order to avoid either children or adults stepping into oncoming traffic, we ask that you place your child’s car seat on the left side of the back seat behind the driver.  Staff members are NOT allowed to buckle children in. Please be patient as this process may take some time.

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.
