Students are to be dropped off between 8:00am and 8:30am in the car-loading area (south side), not in front of the school or in the bus loading area (north side). The school is not responsible for supervising students prior to 8:00am unless they are enrolled in the before school care program (Bobcat Care). Any student arriving late for class must be brought immediately to the office for a tardy slip by a parent/guardian.
Car Rider exit gate will be open at 8:00am and closed at 8:30am.
Walkers and Bike Riders are to use the sidewalks while arriving on campus. For safety reasons students should not ride their bikes once arriving on campus, but walk them to the bike rack. New sidewalks have been placed to alleviate crossing parallel of Morgan Johnson. No crossing guard or staff will be present during arrival in these areas.
Car Riders are dismissed and brought to the car-loading area (south side) to be picked up by parents. Parents are to stay in the car at all times in this area. If you have a conference scheduled with your child’s teacher or need to be on campus for any reason, please park in front of the school and sign in at the front office. *ONLY individuals on the registration/Bio form may pick up a child.
Bus and Day Care students are dismissed to designated areas. Buses to north side of campus and daycare to front of school. Remember, your child may only ride the bus to which he has been assigned. Students may not ride another bus, even with a note.
Walkers and Bike Riders are dismissed to designated areas and a staff member will escort them off campus. We do not have school crossing guards, so please insist that your child follow the adult’s directions for a safe dismissal. Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade students need to be met at the crosswalk by an adult. Bikers and walkers will not be dismissed normally if thunder or rain is present 15 minutes before dismissal. Students will be sent to the office for pick-up or you may call the office to have students sent to Car Riders.
Please do not ask your children to meet you in the parking lot or just off school grounds at dismissal. By not following procedures developed for the safety of everyone, you teach your child that rules and laws should only be obeyed if you agree with them or when they are convenient. Do not park your car and walk to another dismissal area to pick up your child. This is for the safety and security of all students. Please follow all traffic patterns on campus.
