Arrivals and Dismissals

Due to safety/health protocols, only students will be able to enter through the gates at drop-off in the mornings. There will be staff directing students to their classes starting at 8:45 a.m. Please ensure your child knows their teacher’s name. 

 

The Kiss and Go lanes off of Siena Heights are for drive-thru traffic for students 1st - 3rd grade (students will go directly to cars at pick-up and in the morning’s students can debark from cars quickly into the school gates). You can also park on Siena Heights and walk on foot to the pick-up/drop-off gated area (it is near the bike rack) adhering to social distancing and no congregating. The parking lot is closed in the morning and afternoon due to buses from 8:40 a.m.-9:20 a.m. & 2:45 p.m.-3:30 p.m. to allow for school buses to bring/ pick up students to/from campus.  Additionally, after school during dismissal, parents will have to wait outside of the gates adhering to the dots for social distancing and will need to leave campus immediately  (see more details below). 

 

At dismissal time, 1- 3rd-grade classes will head outdoors and stand on socially distanced dots near the basketball courts. We will have a staggered dismissal by last name (A-M, N-Z) and students will leave through the bike rack gate or Kiss and Go gate. Parents are not permitted to enter the campus gates at any time.

Kindergarten students will enter the kinder gate to the left of the front office.  Drop off will be one at a time and the parent/guardian will wait on the painted dots around the perimeter of the gated area to both drop-off and pick up your child. At arrival, your child will go directly to class and be directed by staff. Parents are unable to enter the gate. During dismissal, Kinder students will stagger their releases in the following order: Roqueni/Lesniak and then Shreve/Russell.

Screen Shot 2021-02-26 at 11.11.24 AM.pn

Please remember all students must wear a mask prior to entering the gates and on school grounds for the entirety of the day except at lunch. Additionally, the office will not be accepting student materials throughout the day, so please ensure students have everything they need prior to the start of the day. Lastly, please make sure you do a health check with your child prior to arrival, please see the following link: Parent and Guardian Guidance on Checking Your Student Before Leaving Home and On the Way to and From School and At School

Wearing a Mask
