Important Reminders Regarding Morning Arrival

  • If you will be escorting your child into school on the first day, please park on Westlawn Ave, Bethune Street, or Sutton Street. Make sure you are not blocking driveways and adhere to posted traffic signs. There are parking spaces available in the front parking lot.
  • If you are dropping your child off at school, the drop off time is from 7:30-7:55 a.m. at the back of campus. There will be staff members on duty to assist your child.
  • There is NO drop off at the front of our campus unless you park and you escort your child into school.
  • If your child is a bus rider, they will be dropped off in front of the school at 7:30 a.m. Students will report directly to class.
  • At 7:55 a.m., the back gate will be locked.  At that time, you will need to park at the front campus and escort your child to the classroom.
  • At 8:00 a.m., your child is considered tardy and will need to be checked in by parent/guardian in the front office.

Afternoon Dismissal Procedures

Over the years, we have had many questions regarding our afternoon dismissal process.  Below you will find a map and directions regarding our expectations on getting your child to you in a safe and orderly manner.  Please review these procedures carefully.

(Bus Riders)

Our goal is to have all buses loaded and leaving campus between 2:45-2:50.  Your best plan of action is to get to the bus stop 10 minutes prior to your bus stop time and remain at the bus stop until the bus arrives.  A parent or parent designee is required to be at the bus stop to receive your child. If there is no one at the bus stop, the driver is required to return the child to school.  At Meet and Greet, you will receive a piece of colored paper with your child’s name on it, please show this to the bus driver as the bus approaches.

(Walkers)

Walkers can be picked up right outside of the auditorium in the back parking lot. Students will not be dismissed at the front of school. At Meet and Greet, you will receive a piece of colored paper with your child’s name on it, please show this to the staff member who is dismissing your child so that she knows who your child belongs to.  Only students who live within the non transport zone can be considered a walker.
