Morning Drop-off Procedures

  • Students may be dropped off at the main entrance beginning at 9:30 a.m. Teachers are involved in meetings before school and are not available to supervise students prior to this time.
  • Students should get out of the car on the sidewalk side.
  • When students enter the building, they should wait quietly in the foyer where a staff member will supervise them until they are released to go to class.
  • If your child will be eating breakfast, please be sure that they arrive no later than 9:30 AM. This will allow sufficient time to eat and get to class on time.


  • Tardiness is disruptive to the routine of the school. Acceptable reasons for excused tardiness are: illness of student, medical or dental appointments that cannot be arranged out of school hours, or bus problems.
  • All children arriving after 9:40 a.m. must be accompanied by their parents and report to the office before going to the classroom.
  • If your child arrives after 9:40 AM, they are considered tardy. Please accompany your child to the office to sign in and receive a tardy pass.
