Arrival/Departure Procedures: Students are not to arrive at school before 8:30 a.m. The staff will begin supervision outside at 8:30 a.m. Therefore, students will need to dress appropriately. Walkers should adjust their travel time accordingly. At 8:40 a.m., students will be allowed to enter the building. Once in the school, students will go directly to class and get prepared for the 8:45 a.m. start time. This door closes promptly at 8:45 a.m.
If you drive your child(ren) to school, please use the rear of the school on Mallard Drive for drop-off. Children Grades K-3/4 will line up on the upper blacktop; Grades 4-6 on the lower blacktop.
Students who arrive late (after 8:45 a.m.) must enter through the front door and check in at the office.
Students will be dismissed as a class using their designated exit. All students who ride the bus will exit and proceed to the designated bus area. At dismissal, K-2 students who are not bus riders will meet on the upper blacktop for parent pick-up. Students in Grades 3-6 that are walkers or have parent pick-up will exit Door #14, located on the Mallard Drive side of the school. Parents who would like to drive their children home need to park on the east side (side closest to school) of Mallard Drive. Drivers may also use Illinois Avenue, but do not park east of the fire hydrant, as this is a fire lane. Specific pick-up information can be found on the school website.
For the safety of our children, all parents who bring their dogs at the end of the school day are asked to stay across the street away from the children and wait for their children to cross the street by the crossing guard.
Walking to School/Crossing Guards: A crossing guard is posted at the corner of Mallard and Illinois before and after school. All students who cross Illinois Avenue must use the crossing guard. Bicycle racks are located behind the school on the upper blacktop. Students are asked to walk their bikes once they arrive on the upper blacktop.
Parking: Our visitors and volunteers are asked to park in our parking lots whenever possible for all of our school activities. We also have a parking option on the south side of Illinois Avenue between our driveway and the stop sign on the corner of Harvard Drive and Illinois Avenue. Community parking is allowed for large events like Open House or Parent Orientation. However, “No Parking” postings must still be observed.
