Arrival & Dismissal

1st-5th grade arrival:

Students arrive to campus between 8:10 am to 8:20 am.

Students may spend time on the blacktop or the play structure. They may not go on the field, into hallways, behind buildings, or past the yellow boundary lines.

Please do not go to classrooms before school to make deliveries.

To prevent tripping and collisions, students may not run on the basketball courts in the morning. Students and younger siblings may not play on the play structure or lunch tables.

On the first day of school, classroom teachers will be on the blacktop basketball courts with signs to show their class where to line up. Students find their assigned teacher’s sign and line up with him or her in a single file line. Parents say goodbye in the line and then step well outside the basketball court to allow a walking path for teachers and students.

This blacktop location is the same for arrival, dismissal, recess and evacuation.

A warning bell will ring at 8:21 am to prompt adults and students to line up for morning meeting. At 8:25 am, the bell rings and morning meeting begins.

Once the bell has rung, students are considered tardy and must go to the main office for a tardy slip.

Parents, at the conclusion of morning meeting, please provide lots of space around the basketball court to allow classes to process out.

On days with substantial rain or deep puddles, between 8:10a and 8:25a, students may proceed directly to their classrooms. Fog, wind, and cool temperatures do not typically interfere with outdoor morning meeting.

1st-3rd grade dismissal:

Families are asked to wait outside the school gates to enter campus so classes can use the blacktop. Teachers will process out to the blacktop with their classes at the 2:35 pm bell. Families pick up their child from the teacher one at a time. Please proceed off campus to allow classes still in session to use the campus. If you have an older child, please wait for them off campus.

4th-5th grade dismissal:

Teachers will process out to the blacktop with their classes at the 3 pm bell. Please proceed off campus to allow our partners including Footsteps to use the space they lease on campus.
