Arrivals and Dismissal Procedures
ARRIVALS: We will start arrivals promptly at 8:30 a.m. We ask that you do not arrive early to form a “parking” line in front of the school building or in front of the gym as these are FIRE LANES and must remain open. We are offering two alternatives. First, we ask if you need to pull in prior to 8:30 a.m. to park in a space in front of the school and wait until staff arrive outside and walk your child across the parking lot by means of using our school crosswalk in front of our school building. Second, by pulling in by the gym side, we are asking you to park in a space facing the Randel House and wait until our staff member arrives near our gym. Once you see them, you may enter the entrance lane and proceed in front of the gym. We will do our best to be present the first couple of weeks of school to direct you if needed. We appreciate your willingness to help keep us safe in these FIRE LANES. REMEMBER, our school parking lot is a cell phone-FREE ZONE and we ask that you drive with caution at all times. Please share this information with those who drop off your children in the morning.
DISMISSAL: We will open our parking lot at 2:45 p.m., starting with our preschool group. Further information on preschool dismissal will be discussed at the parent meeting from our preschool director, Mrs. Kelly Carlin. We ask our parents, guardians and caregivers to enter our school from East Smith Road. We also ask that you do not form a “parking line” in our school entrance drive off of East Smith Road before 2:45 p.m. The school entrance drive is a FIRE LANE and can not be used as a waiting area. If you do arrive earlier, we ask that you park at the Randel House or in our school parking lot on the school side and wait for your child to be dismissed and meet them at the big rock by our school gymnasium. Our kindergarten – grade 2 car rider students begin dismissal promptly at 3:10 p.m. Once you have your child, we ask that you leave our parking lot promptly and slowly to make room for other car riders. Those students who have older siblings will be supervised by teachers and wait until their sibling is dismissed. Car rider students in grades 3-8 will be dismissed at 3:15 p.m. We ask that you meet your child by the rock and, once you retrieve your child, you leave promptly to make room for other car rider parents to enter our parking lot. You MUST exit by way of Rt. 18 if you park in our playground. If you park in our school entrance parking lot, you must exit on Spring Grove Street in the far lane closest to the church along with the buses. PLEASE REMEMBER our East Smith Road is ONLY AN ENTRANCE during school hours until 4 p.m.
If your child is a car rider and you are running late, we will hold your child in the front entrance to our school building or, in case of inclement weather, inside our school building.
