Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Parents are encouraged to drop students off along New Brighton Drive.Only children who are late for school may use the front doors for entry. Each classroom or grade will have a preferred entrance door but are encouraged to use the entrance door that makes the most sense at entry time. At dismissal time students will have a preferred exit. For the first week of school all students will exit the school from designated exits. Kindergarten students will maintain that routine for the entire school year. Grades 1- 4 students will be able to choose their exit based on parent preference, siblings and other needs. It is important for siblings to agree upon a common meeting place outside where they can meet up before walking home together at lunch and/or after school.
