ArrivalThe instructional school day begins at 9:15 AM. Students may arrive on campus between 8:45 AM and 9:15 AM. Students arriving in classrooms after 9:15 AM should report to the office and will be marked tardy. (Exception: students arriving by school bus after 9:15 AM) Your child should be in the classroom ready for the day at 9:15 AM. Please remember that parents walking children to classrooms in the mornings must have nametags.
Students transported by bus will depart buses from the bus loop into the cafeteria. Bus riders may eat breakfast upon arrival or may go directly to their classrooms.Students may be dropped off after 8:45 a.m. Students arriving before this time must remain in cars with parents until 8:45. Parents bringing children should remain in their cars, moving around the circle in front of the school. Students may exit car doors toward the sidewalk only. It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure safe departure to the sidewalk. Students that need childcare prior to 8:45 a.m. may enroll in the Early Morning Program. From 7:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m., students attending Early Morning Daycare will be dropped off in the bus loop and enter through the cafeteria.
Car riders and walkers are dismissed at 3:45 PM. Parents meeting walkers should wait outside in designated area. It is our expectation that parents pick up their children between 3:45 and 4:00 PM. All car riders must be picked up in the carpool line. Students will not be allowed to meet their rides in the parking lot. Picking up students prior to dismissal to avoid waiting in the carpool line is not permitted.Parents should not wait outside classroom doors for children to be dismissed in the afternoon.
Students are dismissed to buses in the afternoon as each bus arrives on campus. Bus arrivals are announced on classroom televisions, and students are dismissed directly from the classrooms. Buses depart the school between 3:45 and 4:15 PM. After 4:15 PM, buses are considered late. Information concerning late bus departure will be communicated on the school’s voicemail (telephone 919-266-8487).
