2022-2023 Arrival and Dismissal Procedures for Car Line
Arrival: Please drop your child off using the car loop anytime between 7:00 and 7:35 (the tardy bell will ring at 7:40). We're going to do our Morning News Show at 7:40. The instructional day will begin immediately following the NPE Morning News, which will typcially be 7:50 or earlier. Please make sure to arrive in time to drop your child off before the tardy bell. When you arrive, students should be prepared to exit the vehicle on the passenger's side anywhere from position 1 to the end of the covered walkway (or to the sidewalk by the Multi-Purpose Room, if a staff member is present). During periods of heavy rain, we will unload only under the covered walkway.
Dismissal: Please get in the car line starting at 2:10.
Use two lanes all the way up until the white line. After the white line, please use an alternate merge (one car after the other) as you move towards positions 1-6. Please have your car sign*clearly displayed from the rear view mirror all the way through the line until your child is loaded in the car. If you need to assist your child with buckling in, please pull up to the area past the Kindergarten playground to do so. Pick-ups at the crosswalk will not take place until 2:45 daily
Early Dismissal: Every minute is precious with regards to your child's education and is especially important this year. If the need to dismiss your child becomes absolutely necessary, you may do so by coming to the Main Office before 1:50p.m. After 1:50, we will be unable to dismiss your child and you will need to get in the car line.
*We suggest a plastic pants hanger to clip your car sign to. Please display it from your rear view mirror from the time to enter the car line until your child is loaded in the car. We use these at multiple points during the dismissal process. Need more car signs? Simply write a note to your child's teacher and request. We'll send them home in your child's book bag.
