Arrival and Dismissal

ARRIVAL

Drop Off Hours

School begins at 8:45 am for grades 1-5. The line-up bell rings at 8:42 am. Students are allowed to arrive on campus at 8:15 am. For your child’s safety, they are not to arrive before 8:15 am unless they are here for breakfast at 8:00 am. Please arrange off-campus care or KOC for them if you must leave for work at an earlier time. Playground supervision and crossing guards are not available on campus until 8:15 am. We ask for your cooperation in ensuring the safety of your child(ren). If you fail to cooperate, the proper authorities may be contacted.

Parking Lot

If you are dropping off your child, please do so in the drive up lane located in the front of the school. Please do not park at the curb and remember not to leave your vehicle unattended. At no time should cars be parked anywhere in the drop-off area. You may park in designated parking spaces in the parking lot only. Please drive slowly and with caution for the safety of all students.

DISMISSAL

Pick Up Hours

School ends at 3:10 pm (2:10 pm on Wednesday) for grades 1-5. Students walk to the front or back gate for dismissal to walk home, wait in the designated drive up area for car pick-up or to meet parents at the front of the school. Parents are not allowed to enter the school gates after school; all visitors must go through the main office and sign in properly. Crossing guards are at the back gate crosswalk and front school crosswalk from 3:00-3:30. After school supervision ends at 3:30. When after-school supervision ends, students who are not picked up on time will need to have a parent sign them out in the office. If a habitual pattern is noted, the proper authorities may be contacted. We would appreciate the cooperation of all the parents in adhering to the pick-up time.

Change of Dismissal Plans

Your child will be sent home directly after school. If a change in the normal routine is requested, a written note from the parents is necessary. There is no provision for children to play on campus after class dismissal. Students are expected to go directly home after dismissal.

Leaving School Early

Students may not leave school early unless they are signed out and picked up in the office by a parent or other person authorized on the emergency card. The office must have all names, including relatives, in writing. Valid photo identification will be required to verify the authorized person to pick up your child from school. We appreciate your cooperation adhering to this procedure for the safety of your child(ren).

Parking Lot

If you are picking up your child in the drive up lane located in the front of the school, please do not park at the curb and remember not to leave your vehicle unattended. Drivers must keep moving and pull all the way forward through this lane. Remind your child(ren) to look for their car and be ready to enter the car on the curb side. At no time should cars be parked anywhere in the pick-up area. You may park in designated parking spaces in the parking lot only. Please drive slowly and with caution for the safety of all students. Please remember, parking in a red zone or a handicapped space is not only illegal and irresponsible, but compromises the safety of all students, parents, and staff.
