Parking, Pick-Up, Drop-Off

General information related to arrival and dismissal:

BEFORE SCHOOL MAP

AFTER SCHOOL MAP

  1. Parents are encouraged to utilize the drop-off and pick-up lane and not exit their cars.
  2. Parents will not be allowed to wait out in front of the building to meet their student(s) after school.  There will be a “meeting spot” on the blacktop playground area.  Parents are encouraged to follow all social distancing guidelines.
  3. Students will be utilizing different doors to enter and exit the building throughout the day.  Safety measures will remain in place with all doors locked during the school day.
  4. We acknowledge that there may be an increase in wait times during dismissal.  Please use patience during this time and allow yourself plenty of time to pick-up your student(s).  Remember that there will only be ½ the number of students or less each day so wait times may not increase.
  5. Students may enter the building at 7:40 and should NOT arrive at school prior to this time.  We will no longer be providing supervision for students in the gym before school.
  6. After students are trained (1-2 weeks) on which door to enter and exit they will not meet at the spot that was utilized during the first 1-2 weeks of the start of the school year.  They will walk and enter the building through their designated door.  A hand sanitation station will be located at each of these entrance points and will be supervised by a staff member so that we can ensure that each student uses hand sanitizer and is wearing a mask as they enter the building. These supervision points will remain in place throughout the year.

This process will not change from past practice.  Students will ring the bell, enter the building and report to the office and receive a “pass” to class.  Parents will not be signing the students in as we are not allowing parents to enter the building unless absolutely necessary.

Dismissal Protocol

 
BUS/DAYCARE STUDENTS:

  • Kindergarten students will be escorted to bus pick-up areas by additional staff members.
  • 1st-5th students will be escorted to bus pick-up areas by one of the grade level teachers..
  • Students will exit the building through the same days as arrival.

PARENT PICK-UP (FRONT OF THE BUILDING):

Students will be given a windshield sign on the first day of school for parents to complete and place in the front windshield of their car.  We will utilize much more of the “u-parking lot” to ensure students are socially distanced.  Each grade level will have an area where they will wait by grade level and individual classroom assignment.  We will not have younger siblings waiting with older siblings so parents will need to stay in line and make multiple stops along the “pick-up” zone until all siblings have been picked up.  Please see attached map for these locations.

WALKERS/MEETING SIBLINGS:

If parents are meeting students after school this needs to occur on the blacktop.  Parents will not be allowed to “congregate” in the pick-up zone in front of the building.  If students are walking they should leave school grounds immediately after dismissal.  If walking with a sibling they should meet on the blacktop after dismissal and NOT at the classroom, locker, etc.
