Bus/van students will be dropped off at the bus loop between 8:15am - 8:30am. Students using these modes of transportation will be dropped off in the bus loop and will be directed into the school.
Students transported to school by car should be dropped off no earlier than 8:15am. Families may drop off their child on Walnut Street, (north side), Emmons or Grant Streets. Parents are asked to use the Crossing Guard located at the intersection of Grant & Walnut Streets when crossing Walnut Street. The Bus Loop will be closed when the first bus enters the bus loop, approximately 8:10 a.m. Families are asked to not drop off their child(ren) in the school’s parking lot. This is not a safe area for children to exit and enter a vehicle. After the buses vacate the bus loop parents may enter the bus loop for tardy arrivals. The approximate time would be 8:25 a.m. For tardy arrivals, if there is no adult outside you will need to walk your child into the building and sign him/her in. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Students walking to school should walk to the crossing guard and cross at the crosswalk. Students will then proceed along the walkway and enter the school, no earlier than 8:15 AM.

This will hold true at dismissal as well. Parents, guardians and other family members are asked to wait outside during the dismissal procedure. You are welcome to meet your child outside the door. The students will proceed through the front lobby then to the bus loop in a quiet, orderly fashion. Staff members will be on duty to supervise all dismissal procedures.
