ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS

This year, Elementary students will be dropped off at the side ramp entrance, as you enter the driveway. They should exit the vehicle on their own. A staff member will be at the door to greet them. Please do not get out of the car with your children.

Primary children will be dropped off at the front of the main building. Please pull up to the front gate so that a staff member can assist your child(ren) getting out of the car. We encourage your child to unbuckle and exit the vehicle through the left door (adjacent to the yard fence). Please do not get out of the car with your child(ren). This is an instructional time and staff members need to be focused on students. A staff member will escort your children to their classrooms.

Toddler families, please park your car and walk your child(ren) through the Toddler courtyard to the front classroom door, where your toddler will ring the bell. For the safety of the students and staff in the parking lot, please be patient and do not pass cars in the car lane.
