Drop Off and Pick Up Safety Tips

1. Please DO NOT use the bus zone to drop off students. This area is for our buses only.  Cars should enter into our larger parking lot.

2. Please ALWAYS use a cross walk to cross the parking lot or street.

3.  If you are driving your child to school we recommend that you stay in your car and use our drop off system to drop your child off at the front of the school.  This is much safer than parking and trying to cross traffic and all of our students – from Kindergarten to Grade 5- know where to go and how to get to their classrooms in the morning. Being independent is a great skill to practice during morning arrival!

4.  No dogs are allowed on school grounds. We love dogs but for consistancy and safety of all, no dogs are allowed.

As a reminder, school starts at 8:00AM. This means that students should be in their classrooms and ready to learn at 8:00.  The school doors open at 7:45 and our playground has supervision starting at 7:40.  This leaves plenty of time to get to school and get to the classrooms.  Teachers take attendance right after the bell rings and any child who is not in the classroom by 8:00 recieves an unexcused tardy.  The best way to prevent the tardy and to ensure your child is on time is to leave enough time to get to school and to the classroom early. We highly recommend riding the bus, if you have bus service!
