Arrival: Students who ride the bus will be dropped off on the west side of the building and enter through the back playground doors.Students who walk or ride bikes will also enter through the back playground doors or the east alley door.

Students who arrive to school by car will be dropped off in the alley to the east of the building. Please do not drop off in front of the building. In order to improve traffic flow and ensure student safety, we will be allowing students to get out of their cars 7 at a time. Please pull all the way forward in the alley. Teachers on duty will instruct your child to get out of the car in these waves of seven. Please have your child ready to go so they can get out of the car quickly and safely when they pull up to their spot. It is easiest to have your child in the backseat on the driver’s side; however, if your child sits in the passenger seat or on the passenger side, please instruct them to walk in front of your car to cross. Please remain in your car while your child gets out of the car. Students should not arrive to school any earlier than 7:30AM. Thank you for helping make this process safe for our students!

Dismissal: At the end of the day, students who are walking or riding bikes will be dismissed at 2:22pm and are to leave school property upon the conclusion of the day.Students who are going home via car, will stand on stenciled tornadoes on the sidewalk to the east side and front of the building and wait until their ride arrives.Students who are going home via bus will walk down to the bus room/cafeteria and wait for their bus to arrive.

Thank you for helping make our arrival and dismissal safe for our students!
