Notice for Parents
September 5, 2014
I want to take a minute to clarify our drop off and pick up procedures as well as to explain a bit more about our closed campus policy.
Guidelines for everyone:
1. Students SHOULD NOT be on campus before 8:00 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday. On Wednesdays, the earliest they should be here is 9:00. There is no supervision on campus prior to those times, making students being here early unsafe.
2. The purpose of having a closed campus is keeping our kids safe. Although we want you to be involved, parents are invited to be on campus only if they have a specific purpose for being here. This would include things such as volunteering in a class, helping set up for a PTA function or having a prearranged meeting with a teacher. Parents are not to be on campus simply to walk their students to class. If students arrive after the bell rings (and gates are closed), students may walk through the office to get to their classes. If they need assistance getting there, someone in the office will gladly help out.
3. If you are picking up at the 2:05 time, please follow the same parking lot rules as other times. Parents should not be getting out of their cars to pick kids up and should still move as far forward as possible in the pick up line in order to allow as many people as we can through efficiently.
For TK, Kinder and First Grade students, drop off should take place at the Kindergarten gate (or in the back of the school, if you prefer). Students will walk to the playground after placing their backpacks near their outside classroom doors or, for room 12, their line. Students should not be in the halls as there is no supervision there. Pick up for these kids seems to be going really well..keep up the great work!
For 3rd-5th Grade students, drop off and pick up will take place through the gate near the MP or through the back gate. Students should be picked up in a timely manner as there is no supervision after 3:05. Again, this seems to being going pretty well-keep it up.
Overall, things have gone quite smoothly these past two weeks. I just wanted to be sure that everyone was getting the same message at the same time. If you have any questions at all, please let me know.
