Parent drop-off and pick-up procedures:

If you are transporting your child to and/or from school by car, please follow the procedures outlined below:

For morning drop off:

  • Students who are being dropped off must exit their car using the passenger side door.  Drop-off on the driver’s side is extremely dangerous as a car may be attempting to pass by, possibly resulting in an injury to a student. 

  • The primary drop off is the parking area closest to Lincoln Street. Vehicles should pull up to the crosswalk to let students out so they can proceed safely through our crosswalks and into school.
  • When and if the primary parking/drop off area backs up onto Lincoln Street, students may be dropped off in the second parking area. Vehicles should stop just before the crosswalk to let students out, so vehicles don’t interfere with students crossing from the primary drop off area. Vehicles should not be dropping students off one, two, three or more car lengths away from the crosswalk. Also, please do not park in the second parking area, as it is designated for staff only.
  • Student should be dropped off as close to 8:25 as possible and no students should be arriving to school before 8:15. Outside supervision does not begin until 8:25 and students are let into the building at 8:35.
  • In good weather students will line up by grade level just outside the school entrance. During inclement or very cold weather, students will line up inside the school.

It is extremely important that students arrive to school on time! Children arriving in classrooms after 8:42am are marked tardy and must sign in at the office before going to their classroom. Parents are encouraged to say goodbye to their children outside of the building and should report to the office to sign in and request permission if they need to go to the classroom for any reason.

For afternoon pick up:

  • Students that are picked up from school are dismissed from class at 3 pm. and will arrive outside by 3:05.
  • Due to increase in students being transported by bus or van to MacArthur School, we are using the front entrance way for other dismissal purposes and parents are asked to wait outside for their child or children to arrive.
  • All parking should be in the parking lot closest to the Lincoln Street. Vehicles should not be parking in the staff parking lot or along exit or entrance ways. This presents a danger for cars and children alike.
  • Parents must get out of their vehicles to meet students who will be walked to the meeting area in between the staff parking area and the parent pick-up parking area (there are several black benches in this area). We will no longer hand off children right outside the school entrance.
  • Please take your time when pulling out of your parking spot. In an effort to save a few minutes, you may endanger a child or adult by leaving too quickly.
