Arrival & Dismissal

Arrival
7:45 Drop off - We strongly encourage all students to arrive after 8:10; however, we understand there may be situations where parents need to be at work. Students will be permitted to enter the school through the main entrance at 7:45 a.m. Students will be seated in the gym from 7:45-8:10. It is likely that our traffic line will begin to form at approximately 7:45-8:00 a.m. and parents should consider traffic congestion near Schutte Rd. & Peerless Rd. Once the traffic begins to move at 8:10, traffic will be routed around the back of the building. It is very important that parents do not leave their children before 7:45 and ensure they enter through the main entrance.

Student dropoff begins at 8:10 a.m. and takes place behind the school. During morning dropoff we ask that students exit the car upon the first stop. Parents should pull up as far as possible (in the U drive) and have their children exit once they stop. Students can enter the building through two different doors (at the east and west entrances). Staff members are stationed inside the doors to help direct students' to their classroom. Please do not hold your child (children) in your car after you stop the first time, as the constant flow of traffic ensures everyone can get where they are going on time. There are multiple staff members outside to help students out of cars and into the building.

Bus riders will enter the school through the main entrance.

Dismissal
We begin afternoon dismissal at 3:20 p.m. Our afternoon procedures are different from the morning as we do not have the constant flow of traffic. To ensure the safety of all students and staff we ask parents to pull behind the school, making two rows that wrap around the U shaped drive. There is an established place for the first car to stop. Once the driver has pulled as far up as possible, we ask that you shut your engine off. Our staff members will call students car by car as they make their way around the track. All cars must have a sign in the windshield with your child(ren)s' last name. Once your child is safely in your vehicle, we ask that you remove your sign. Once all the students are safely loaded, we will dismiss cars, one row at a time. We typically have two rounds of dismissal. All drivers should arrive at West Terrace by 3:10; dismissal concludes at 3:35 (if all goes as planned). Students who are not picked up by 3:35 will be sent to the office and those not picked up by 3:50 will wait at our extended day program.
