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.

Morning Drop Off

  • School opens at 9:00 a.m. Parent Drop will take place at our main entrance. Faculty will be available to conduct temperature screenings at 8:50 a.m.
  • Our instructional day starts promptly at 9:15 a.m.
  • Drive slowly in a single file.
  • Drop-off is at the Red Curb on the front right side of the building.
  • Drivers should remain in vehicles.
  • Staff will be at the curb to assist students as they exit your vehicle.
  • As you exit the parking lot, please drive around the front parking loop and exit to John Street. 
  • Just a reminder that buses should never be passed coming up our hill.
  • Any students arriving after 9:15 a.m. will need to be escorted into the building.

Afternoon Pick Up

  • The school day ends at 3:30 p.m. Students with Parent Pick-Up will be dismissed from the Front Door, beginning at 3:20 p.m.
  • Parents will not come into the building for P.M. dismissal.
  • Proceed slowly to the curb on the front right side of the building (same as a.m. arrival).
  • A staff member will greet you in the car line, and you will sign your child out on the clipboard. They will radio into our dismissal team in the main hallway. Drivers remain in vehicles.
  • Written permission is required for anyone picking up a student other than a legal guardian. Every effort should be made to submit information regarding an alternate pick-up to the main office prior to 12:00 p.m. Email Renee Hale at: or Roxanne DeJohn at
  • If our staff is unfamiliar with you, please be prepared to show identification upon request.

Face Coverings/Masks

Face masks covering both the mouth and nose will be required for all students, staff and visitors inside schools and on school buses regardless of vaccination status. Bandanas and neck gaiters will not be permitted.

Masks will be optional when outdoors on school property.

Students will be provided mask breaks when seated in class and socially distanced.

Only those with medically documented reasons for not wearing face coverings would be exempt from this mandate.

Temperature Checks

School staff will conduct temperature checks of students as they enter school each day. If a student has a fever (100 degrees or higher), they will be sent to the designated isolation room to be evaluated by a school nurse. Parents will be contacted immediately and asked to come pick up their child.

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
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting

The Health Screening Form from last year does not need to be submitted.
