Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

In an effort to accommodate the increased number of students being dropped off and picked up by parents, procedures have been developed to increase safety and reduce congestion in the front of the school. Please be patient and understanding as we implement these procedures to start the school year.

Arrival Procedures

All Bell Top students will have their temperature checked upon arrival. Four entrances will be utilized. Teachers will direct children to specific entry doors based on their grade level.

Parents who are dropping off children at school will need to enter the lower level parking lot and follow the line of traffic around the loop. A staff member will be there to assist your child out of the car. You may then exit the parking lot. Parents may drop students off anytime between 8:45 – 9:00 a.m. Once the bell rings at 9:00 parents must park and escort their child to the front entrance.

Dismissal Procedures

Student pick-up by parents will begin at 3:20 p.m. Please park in the lower lot and walk up to the front, main entrance. Check in at the front vestibule and your child will be released to you. Buses will be loaded as they arrive and students will be dismissed from their classrooms over the PA system. Three announcements will be made throughout the building before the buses will be released.

Face Coverings/Masks

Face masks are optional inside schools and on school buses regardless of vaccination status, effective March 2, 2022.

Masks are also optional when outdoors on school property.

Daily Health Screenings

Parents/guardians are asked to check their children for COVID-19 symptoms each morning. Students exhibiting one of the following symptoms should not be sent to school that day. Please keep your child at home and call your family doctor.

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
