Car Rider Information
Arrival and dismissal for all car riders and daycare van riders will occur along the full length of the sidewalk in front of the school. Please find the map demonstrating the traffic pattern attached.
Please remember that for your child to be picked up as a car rider in the afternoon, we require a note, email, or phone call to the teacher/office from a parent/legal guardian only. We will not accept your student informing us of their car rider status.
Each family of car riders will be assigned a unique number. Your family number will be located on two car rider tags to be displayed in your vehicle(s). Your child(ren) will also receive a number tag that will be attached to their backpack. Please note, that car rider numbers are only needed for dismissal. They are not necessary during AM drop-off.
Please consider signing up for a car rider number, even if you only plan to pick up your child on rare occasions. To sign up for a number, please complete the Google form linked here by Sunday, August 20.
At arrival time (8:30-8:50 AM), please follow the traffic pattern identified on the map, and pull up as far as possible along the front sidewalk. Students must remain in their vehicles until a staff member is present, and the student’s vehicle is safely aligned with the front sidewalk.
At dismissal time (3:25-3:35 PM), please follow the traffic pattern identified on the map, be sure your car rider number is visible, and remain in your car. Please pull up as far as possible along the front sidewalk. Upon seeing your car rider tag number, a staff member will call your child to be brought to your vehicle from inside the building. For safety purposes, please note that all students will be entering vehicles from the passenger side.
Please share this information with anyone else who may pick up your child. As long as the individual has the car rider number tag provided to you, they will be permitted to pick up your student from the car rider line.
The safety and well-being of your children is our top priority. It is imperative that all vehicles follow this established traffic pattern at all times. Ensuring students remain in their vehicles until a staff member is present on the sidewalk will be a point of emphasis this year. Even if the time is 8:30 AM, students are not permitted to exit the vehicle and approach the building without a staff member present. Thank you for complying with these directions to keep all students safe and the arrival/dismissal process as efficient as possible.
Please feel welcome to contact our office with any questions.
School supplies are not required at the elementary buildings. Teachers will communicate with families if they have a specific request for their classroom.

This summer, our students who just completed K, 1st, and 2nd grades have the opportunity to participate in the YT Summer Library Reading Adventure. Students who complete 10 puzzle activities (linked below) can earn a reward! Please return all papers to Mrs. Roberto by September 1st.
Reading puzzle papers were sent home the last week of school, or can be found here. Printed copies are available in the school office by request as well. Many of the challenge activities are paired with the wonderful reading events and opportunities provided by the York County Library throughout the summer.
