Arrival Procedures

School begins promptly at 8:00 AM. Students arrive between 7:30 AM and 8:00 AM and are greeted by the school staff at the gym door behind the school. For the safety of your child, please do not drop your child off earlier than 7:30 AM.

Please do not leave until you see your child enter the building through the gym door. The gym door closes at 8:00 AM. Students will be marked tardy after 8:10 AM.

If you arrive late, students MUST be accompanied by an adult to the front office to sign in.

Dismissal Procedures

School dismissal begins at 2:50 PM. Dismissal times are staggered in ten-minute intervals to avoid back up onto Melbourne Ave. It is imperative that students are picked up at the time given. Students are dismissed through the gym door. Parents remain in their cars.

Dismissal by grade as follows:

2:50 – 3:05 Grades K-5 and Carpools
3:05 – 3:15 Grades 6-8
3:20 – Students Dismissed to Office

Dismissal Information

Students are assigned a specific number prior to the opening day of school. When entering the dismissal line, your student’s number must be clearly displayed on your car mirror. Enter the pick-up line from Melbourne Ave. onto Rosemont Ave. into the “loading zone” (see map).

Once in the loading zone, form lines parallel to the back of the building. Your child’s number will be called and your child will be promptly escorted to your vehicle. When all vehicles in the loading zone are safely loaded, the traffic director will motion for one line at a time to exit onto Midland Ave. As vehicles exit, new cars will pull into the loading zone.
