School Protocols for Families
- Doors open for students at 8:00 AM
- Please have your child in the building by 8:20 a.m. since instruction starts at 8:30 AM
- Dismissal bell is at 3:00 PM
- Latest time for early pick up is 2:30 PM
All walkers must enter through the front doors. Parents will say their “goodbyes” either on the porch or inside the lobby (not walking to the classrooms due to teachers needing to have all their energy and attention on the students). If a parent walks into the building, they must have completed the Visitor Management System at the door using the QR Code posted on each outside door (you must have a cell phone and photo ID to use the system). Please note that parents can not park their car on Darien Drive during drop off, 8:00-8:45 a.m., due to the City Ordinance. Parents can park in the Highland Methodist Church parking lot and walk from there. There is one crossing guard at the intersection of Lake Boone Trail and Ridge Road.
For safety reasons, students should remain in their vehicle until you enter the staffed carpool unloading area (this is after you pass the front steps). Please have your child exit from the passenger side of your car. They should have their bookbag on and ready to exit the car when the door opens. All goodbyes should be done before the car door opens. Only right-hand turns entering and exiting the carpool loop. All carpoolers will enter the building through the doors at the top of the steps by the flagpole.
