Student Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures
We discourage students from being picked up in the circle drive. Please pick your child up according to these guidelines:
- Kindergarten and 1st grade parents are asked to park on West Street (south of the circle drive by Peter Pan Park) and walk up to the primary wing to pick students up.
- 2nd grade parents, park on Randolph Street (north of Peter Pan Park). Staff will walk students to that area.
- 3rd-5th grade students will be dismissed to walk to Randolph Street and can cross at either West or Washington Street (north of Riverside).
If you have students in multiple grades, ask the older child to pick up the younger child/children and go to the older child’s pick up location. If you have a pre-arranged pick up place for your child so that they know where to walk, that is the best solution.
