Arrival and Dismissal
Please note that there are three drop-off points:
WEST END DROP OFF – Cars are to enter the west end parking lot through the Highway Avenue entrance ONLY. No cars should be entering for drop-off from any other part of the parking lot. After drop-off they are to continue on in a straight line and exit on Condit Street. Please pull up one car length north of the door to the yellow line so that children from three cars may exit at the same time. As a courtesy to those behind you, please be sure children are ready to exit the car when you pull up.
HIGHWAY AVENUE DROP-OFF – Cars are to approach from the east (Delaware Street) and continue in a straight line at the curb. Students may enter either at the main entrance or the west end door. There is to be No Parking in front of school during the morning drop-off time of 7:30-7:45 a.m.
NORTH END DROP OFF – Drop off is available at the entrance.
Parents who enter the building with students are to park in front of the school at the west end only.
Both the NORTH and the WEST parking lots will be used for pickup at dismissal time. For the safety of the children, parents of students in Grades 1-8 are asked to remain in their cars at pick-up and dismissal times.
WEST LOT PICKUP-FAMILY NAMES A-K – On the WEST LOT, please park in the marked parking places FACING EAST. Students whose last names begin alphabetically from A-K or who regularly ride with someone in that category will exit from the west doors.

* Parents whose children will be regularly riding with someone who will be parking on the lot other than the one assigned to them must notify their child’s teacher in writing so that the students may be dismissed from the proper exit.
