Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

Arrival

Students may enter the school at 7:40 a.m.

All students should be in the building by 8:05 a.m. to allow them time to be in their classrooms by the time the tardy bell rings at 8:10 a.m.

*Children riding the bus will enter through the gym doors located in the front of the building.

*The bus driver will drop off children who eat breakfast with us at the cafeteria doors.

When dropping off your child, circle around the back of the building. Car riders will enter the building through the cafeteria doors, also located in the front of the building. Our safety patrol team and staff will be on duty until 8:05 a.m. to greet students and help them as they exit their vehicles from the passenger side.

You may park your car in one of the visitor parking spaces in the front of the building and **escort your child to the cafeteria doors. However, you are encouraged to use the car lane and circle behind the building to drop your child off and promote independence.


**Please note: If you park in the front of the building, you must accompany your child across the parking lot.
For safety purposes, pulling up to the front of the building is not permitted by private passenger vehicles during morning drop off. This area is reserved for our school buses.

Adults are not permitted through the cafeteria doors. If you need to visit the office, enter the building through the main doors.

Students who have registered and been accepted into our LEAPs program will enter the building through the gym doors located in the front of the building beginning at 7:00 a.m.


Dismissal

Students are dismissed from school at 3:10 p.m.

If it is necessary for you to pick up your child before the end of the school day, you must do so prior to 2:45 p.m.  This assists us in our efforts to keep traffic flowing smoothly.

If it is necessary for you to change your child's transportation plans, you must call the office by 2:00 p.m. to ensure that we have time to get a message to your child.

During dismissal, please enter the car line from the southbound lane of Volunteer Parkway--making a right turn onto our property as pictured below.
