We’ve used the first 8 weeks of school to reassess the bus and drop off procedures, and effective Monday, November 4, there will be changes.
Buses will no longer drive around the back of the building. All students will get on and off buses at the bus loop by the main entrance. PreK through 3rd grade students will use the PreK-3 wing entrance by the ramp. All other students will use the main entrance.
The bus loop by the main entrance will be CLOSED to cars between 7:20 and 8:00 am, and between 2:30 and 3:10 pm. Families are invited to drop off students along the sidewalk in front of the school, by the flagpole. Those needing to turn around can do so in the library parking lot.
If PreK through 3rd grade students arrive after 7:40 am, they should come in through the main entrance doors. If they arrive earlier than 7:30 am, they should enter through the main entrance doors to wait in the entrance area until the PK-3 wing opens at 7:30 am. Aides will be monitoring all locations.
Students in grades 4-12 who arrive after 7:40 am will sign in at the main office, as usual.
We anticipate that this change will improve safety, order, and efficiency for students.
