Morning Drop-off

The safety of the children is our primary concern during drop-off and pick-up.  We ask parents to become familiar with the drop-off and pick-up procedures. For your convenience, a drop off service is provided from 7:30-7:55 a.m.  During this time, faculty and staff will unload students from cars.  After 7:55, it will be necessary to park your car and escort your child into the building.  KINDERGARTEN parents should drop their children off in the morning under the awning, where staff will be available to unload the children and escort them inside. FIRST GRADE students and students eating breakfast should be dropped off on the east-side of the building by the awning. School personnel will be on duty to monitor children going into the building. If you are dropping off or picking up on the east-side, stay in the right traffic lane on Hoehn Drive as you approach the building.

Afternoon pick-up

Families are expected to utilize our car line pick up service in the afternoons.  Each class is escorted by their teacher to their designated place for pick-up. To help with traffic congestion, first grade parents should wait until 2:45 pm before entering in the car line traffic to pick up their first grader. For safety reasons, parents will not be able to walk up to pick up students. 

Each class has an animal decal and parents receive one for their vehicle.  The designated pick-up person should display the decal on their windshield for identification. Students who are picked up in the front of the school will be loaded on the passenger’s side of the vehicle. Students picked up on the side of the school will be loaded on the driver’s side.

All students should be picked up by 3:05 pm. Students whose parents repeatedly fail to pick them up by 3:05 pm, will be sent to extended day and charged according to the fee scheduled.
