Pick Up Drop Off as of January 2017

 

Dear Creekside Parents,

 

Due to too many close calls in the parking lot at Drop-Off and Pick-Up we are making some changes to the pattern the cones are set out. Please be aware that there is only one lane, that the exit is not an entry way and if you are a Kindergarten or 1st Grade parent that you must park in the parking lot and not the pick-up lane.  All other people picking students up should remain in their cars in the pick-up lane.

Your children’s safety is our primary concern.  We highly recommend that you drop the students off between 8:00 and 8:15. Teaching starts at 8:30 we have far too many students being dropped off after 8:25. The students enter the building at 8:20, unless the weather conditions dictate otherwise, to get ready for class to begin.  We also highly recommend that you pick your students up after 2:35. The later you come the shorter the line and the faster you get to leave the parking lot.  Please be courteous of other drivers while merging your cars.

 

Thank you for your assistance with the safety of the students at Creekside. 

 

Estimados padres de Creekside,

 

Debido a demasiadas llamadas cercanas en el estacionamiento en el momento de la entrega y  recoger estamos haciendo algunos cambios en el patrón de los conos establecidos. Tenga en cuenta que sólo hay un carril, que la salida no es un camino de entrada y si usted es un padre de Kindergarten o 1er grado que debe estacionar en el estacionamiento y no en el carril de recoger. Todas las demás personas que recogen a los estudiantes deben permanecer en sus coches en el carril de recoger.

La seguridad de sus hijos es nuestra principal preocupación. Recomendamos encarecidamente que deje a los estudiantes entre las 8:00 y las 8:15. La enseñanza empieza a las 8:30 tenemos demasiados estudiantes que son dejados después de las 8:25. Los estudiantes entran al edificio a las 8:20, a menos que las condiciones climáticas dicten lo contrario, para prepararse para comenzar la clase. También recomendamos que recoja a sus estudiantes después de las 2:35. Cuanto más tarde llegue, más corta es la línea y más rápido saldrá del estacionamiento. Por favor sea cortés de otros conductores mientras la fusión de sus coches.

 

Gracias por su ayuda con la seguridad de los estudiantes en Creekside

 

 

Arrival:
In order to maintain safety around our school premises, we would like to remind you that once students arrive at school they should line up by the appropriate door each morning. Teachers will then meet your children and walk them to their classrooms.

 
Dismissal:

Bus Riders: Will exit door #9 and will then proceed to line up in their bus lines waiting patiently for their buses to load for dismissal.

 

Walkers: K, 1st grade will exit door #4. 2nd graders will exit door #6. All other students should exit the door they entered and proceed to take shortest route home using the sidewalks. (Many students have been cutting through the yards in our neighborhood, but we need to respect their property.)

 

After leaving the building, students will meet their parents in the pick-up/drop off area. Therefore, it is recommended families pinpoint a meeting area by the side of our building.

  • If you are picking up, please stay in your car and wait patiently in the line until you pick up your child. 
  • If for any reason you are not able to pick up your child, please let the teacher and office know, so we are aware of who will be picking up your child.
  • Please do not offer to take another child home unless you have coordinated this with their parent and notified the school.

 

We ask that only buses use the parking lot that is marked “For School Buses ONLY” as the other parking lot will be available for pick-up and drop-off.
