bell at 8:40 A.M.

children to be in their classroom line “outside” each morning. Please
make sure children do not arrive earlier than 8:30 A.M. for their safety…
especially on inclement weather days. There is no supervision in the
classrooms due to the teachers greeting their classes outside.

who are driving may utilize the “kiss-n-go” (drop-off and pick-up) lane
at the front of the school building or park their cars in designated parking
spaces in the parking lot. Please
do not pull up and park in the “kiss-n-go” lane. If you plan to park and wait for your child
you must park in the parking lot only. Please follow the posted signs when dropping
off or picking up students. As a
courtesy to those needing handicap spaces please do not stop or park in front
of them. As you drop children off make sure they get out on the curbside only
for their safety. The bus
loading/unloading area is not accessible to cars. See map below:
PLEASE drive responsibly & abide by our arrival/dismissal procedures so
that our children are safe. We’d like
to remind our community of the need for safety in our parking lot and Kiss
and Go Lane. Please help us keep all
children safe by abiding by the following rules:
- Please pull up as far as possible.
- Please do not stop in the crosswalk areas.
- Please do not stop in or next to the three
handicap parking spots.
- Please remain in your vehicle while in the kiss
and go lane.
- If you can't find a place to stop, you will
need to loop back around using the street.
- The left lane is for moving traffic, and the
right lane is for dropping off and picking up.
- Please do not let your children in or out of
the cars from the left lane.
- If there aren't any parking spaces in the
parking lot, please find parking on the street.
- Please do not drive through, park, or pick up
your child in the bus loop area (buses only)
- If you park in back of the school, please do
not walk across the bus loop
- Please leave the bus loop free of cars during
Line Up Outside
have the children always go to the door where they line up until 8:40. The doors are manned until 8:40. After 8:40, children should come in through
the front door.
who arrive at school after the starting time of 8:40 A.M. are marked “tardy”
and must sign in at the school office prior to going to class. The student will be given a tardy pass to
take to the teacher and the attendance record will be corrected. To excuse a tardy arrival in advance, please
call the attendance line, 303-387-6252, and leave a message in the voice mail
Late Pick Ups
leave a message in the attendance mailbox prior
to 3:00 p.m. if you will be running late so that we can get a hand
written message to your child before class dismissal. Please
do not call in messages after 3:00 p.m. because students are in transition making
it very difficult to communicate into the classrooms. If you know that you will be occasionally
or consistently late picking up your child you must register them for paid
after school care with TBE B.A.S.E @ 303-387-6300.
Leaving During the School Day
Missing Student Items
- Please allow
enough time to come to the office to sign your child for appointments/travel. While you are signing your child out we
will page into the classroom to have them dismissed.
- Please do not
call ahead asking to have your child ready for pick up for appointments/travel. We are always working to maximize
learning time in the classroom…every interruption interrupts learning.
- NO student will
be permitted to leave the school with any other adult unless the parent or
guardian has given us permission to release the student in that person’s
custody. Identification may be
required in these situations.
Students need to remember to check the front office for any missing times that parents may bring to school during the school day such as homework, lunches or clothing. Thank you for leaving your items at the front desk so that we can keep from interrupting the learning environment as much as possible for all students.
