PICK UP AND DROP OFF TIMES

 

DROP OFF:  8:50 – 9:00

 

PICK UP:  2:50- 3:00

 

Please do your best to adhere to these times.  Our staff has important places to be after work and lots of preparation to do before the students arrive.  This time without students is a very critical part of our planning and preparation time.

 

ARRIVAL

DISMISSAL

We will be modifying out pick up process this year to make it easier on you and the children during pick up time.

 

Please park in the designated parking spots.

 

We will be “staging” the students near the exit door with them already packed up and shoes changed.  The staff and students will finish up snack and start the packing up process. 

 

Starting at 2:50, there will be a teacher stationed at the door looking for parents arriving.  Please wait at the bottom of the steps for the teacher to send your child out to you.  If there is a person in front of you, please wait your turn.  Your child will come out with their tote bag/lunch box and personal belongings.

 

If you need to speak to a staff member about any details, please call ahead or email to let the staff know that you need a little “chat time.”  And be forewarned that it will be the staff’s priority to dismiss the other students in a timely manner.  If you need to speak to the staff at the need of the day, please try to arrive by 2:30 to give ample time to talk.
