Arrival Procedures

In the mornings both Crowder Blvd. and Hayne Blvd. are used for drop-offs. Hayne Blvd. entrance will open at 7:45 A.M., and the Crowder Blvd. gate will open at 7:45 A.M. and close at 8:25 A.M.. Parents living to the east of the school must approach from Hayne Blvd. – not Crowder Blvd. If you live west of the school, please use the Crowder Blvd. drop-off area. Do not make a u-turn from Crowder into the front entrance gate between 7:45 A.M. – 9:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. – 3:15 P.M. This cuts off people waiting to turn into the yard from the east and is discourteous. We will temporarily extend
times due to the touch-free temperature checks and hand sanitation required before entering the classroom. Students in 3rd grade and up must wear face coverings, and students in pre-kindergarten — 2nd grade are encouraged to wear face coverings (based on current guidelines in place). The tardy bell will ring at 8:25 (again, this time maybe extended for the first few weeks). Any student arriving after the tardy bell must be signed in, and a parent must sign the tardy slip. Parents, please do
not exit your vehicle.

If your child is in Grade 3 or below, please see to it that your child wears a name tag on his or her person through September 30. No one will be accepted without this information on his or her clothing. In order for your child to be directed to the proper room in the morning and ushered to the correct P.M. area in the afternoon, it is of paramount importance that you adhere to the aforementioned. All pupils must have their parents check the form below relative to dismissal time and mail a copy to the school.
