Drop Off/Pick Up Process

KMORNING DROP OFF:

Preschool/Kindergarten parents may park in two places:

1.  The parking lot behind the preschool on Los Higos is open in the morning hours from 7:00 a.m. until 9:15 a.m.  Parents may park on the basketball courts (parking lot) to walk students into the classrooms.  Parents are responsible to sign each student in on the sign-in/sign-out sheet, and may not just drop a student off and leave.  There is no staff supervision in this parking lot, so for everyone’s safety, thank you for being careful.

2.  The parking lot in front of the school is also available for parking, and the lot is open all day.  Please see traffic patterns and parking rules below.

STUDENTS ATTENDING MORNING EXTENDED DAY CARE:

The front parking lot is available for parents to park and walk students in to morning EDC if this is before 7:45 am.  Students are to be signed in, so there should be no drop off only.  Please follow the parking lot traffic patterns as outlined below.  EDC ends at 8:00 a.m.

MORNING DROP OFF/TRAFFIC PATTERN:

Morning drop off is between 7:45-8:15 a.m. each morning.  Students will have their temperature checked in the parking lot. If they have a fever they will not be allowed to come to school that day. 

If a parent wishes to walk their student on to campus they must have their temperature checked and wear a mask at all times.

AFTERNOON PICK UP:

All parents may use the front parking lot to pick up students.  Cars may enter from Los Higos and drive through the west side of our parking lot to pick up their student. K-2 students can be picked up from 2:45-3:10, at which time they will be taken to Day Care. 3-8 students may be picked up from 3:10-3:25 at which time they will be taken to Day Care.

ATTENDANCE:

Students that are NOT IN THEIR CLASSROOMS by 8:15 are considered tardy. Tardies for being late due to oversleeping, traffic, etc. are not considered excused.  An excused tardy would be a doctor’s appointment or other unavoidable event.

If a student is tardy more than twice during a grading period, a letter will come home to remind parents and students that timeliness to school is important.  If a third or more tardy slips are distributed during a grading period, a meeting with the principal will be arranged.  Coming to school late sets the wrong tone for the day, causing undo angst to the student.  It disrupts the class and the teacher.  If it can be avoided, it is appreciated.  Teaching timeliness to a child is a life-long lesson.

GENERAL REMINDERS:

Students who are picked up during the school day for appointments, etc., must be signed out through the school office.  Parents are not permitted to pick up students in the classroom during regular school hours.

Parents are not permitted to bring fast food lunch for students.  If a student has forgotten a lunch, a sack lunch may be brought to the school office and the student will be called to pick it up.

ALL VISITORS MUST REPORT TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE.

ONLY adults who are on a student’s emergency form will be allowed to pick up a student.  Identification may be requested before student release.
