Drop-Off & Pick-Up Procedures

Student Hours

Students may enter the school building between 7:30 a.m. and 7:50 a.m. There is no adult supervision for students prior to 7:30 a.m. Our school day officially begins at 7:50 a.m.; therefore, any students arriving after 7:50 a.m. are officially tardy. If your child arrives after 7:50 a.m., please park in a designated parking spot, and enter the building to sign him/her in so he/she can receive a tardy pass. A student who is consistently tardy misses vital instruction. Please strive to have your children at school on time daily. It will help to develop a positive pattern for them as they mature.

Morning Arrival for Car Riders

Parents may be drop off students beginning at 7:30 a.m. The designated area for drop-off is the parking lot loop in front of the school. Please enter the lot and continue around the perimeter until you reach the sidewalk closest to the building. Once teachers are present in front of the building and you have pulled forward to where they stand, your children may exit the car. A staff member will be present beginning at 7:30 a.m. We encourage all students to open the door and exit onto the sidewalk independently to prevent traffic congestion. We ask, for the safety of our students, that there be no passing in the car loop.

Escorting Your Child Into the School Building

On occasion, parents wish to escort their children into the school building in the morning. If you need to escort your child, please park in the lot in front of our building and sign in at the office.

Notifying Staff of Changes in Afternoon Dismissal Plans

If you know your child’s typical dismissal plan will be altered, please fill out a “Note to the Office” (available in the front office) or send in a written note. If an emergency arises and you need to make a last minute change, please call the school office at (804) 365-4640. 

Early Dismissal for Appointments

If your child has a medical appointment that requires early dismissal, please complete and send in a “Note to the Office” to make your child’s teacher and office staff aware. Parents wishing to pick their children up prior to our regular dismissal (2:20 p.m.) should plan to pick up your child in the office before 2:00 p.m. We will not dismiss any students between 2:00 p.m. and 2:20 p.m.

Afternoon Dismissal for Car Riders

If you plan to pick your child up from school at dismissal, please enter the parking lot in front of the school and join the parent pick-up line. Please have your student pick-up pass visible to pick up your student.
