ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL RULES

WHEN TO GET TO SCHOOL AND TARDINESS

  • We encourage parents to drop children off prior to 7:30 am to avoid traffic congestion and stress 

  • Teaching begins promptly at 7:45 am and students are considered late if they are not in their classrooms by 7:40 am

  • If you arrive at 7:40 am or later, you must walk your child into the front office to sign them in - they will be considered tardy

  • If you are running late, please make an effort to arrive and drop your child off in a safe manner!  SAFETY MUST BE EVERYONE'S PRIORITY

 

​GETTING TO SCHOOL

  • Follow the carpool and walker map (see below)

  • DO NOT PASS other cars (or buses!)

  • You must STOP if a bus is loading or unloading - Red lights will be flashing

  • If you arrive between 7-7:10 am, please use the carpool lane in front of the school. The Artwood carpool lane (on the right side of the school) may be used after 7:10 am once all the buses have dropped their students off

  • Never leave your car unattended unless you have parked in designated parent parking (see map below)

  • Do not get out of your car in the carpool lane - We will help your child unload and load

  • No talking on cell phones in carpool lanes

DISMISSAL AFTER SCHOOL

  • If you need to pick your child up early from school, you must do so before 1:30 pm from the front office

  • Children riding buses are dismissed first, then carpoolers, then walkers last

  • After all buses leave, the carpool line will begin moving

  • Cars line up approaching the school from Artwood Rd. Cars should turn off their cars once they line up in the queue. DO NOT LET YOUR CAR IDLE! 

  • Walkers should be picked up near the walker's tunnel near the playground
