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.

Morning Drop Off

  • School opens at 9:00 a.m. We will begin unloading students at 9:00 a.m. 
  • Our instructional day starts promptly at 9:15.
  • Drive slowly in a single file.  
  • Vehicles should hug the right side of the road as you come down the drive. (Buses will be driving in the clearly painted bus lane on the left side of the drive).
  • 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, go directly to the back row of the parking lot to make your exit from the lot, so as to not pass the buses.
  • Any students arriving after 9:15 will need to be escorted into the building.

Afternoon Pick Up

  • All parents planning on P.M. pick up should let us know prior to the start of the year. Email chiaccde@egcsd.org indicating who will be picking your child up each day (e.g., mom, dad, grandparent).
  • The school day ends at 3:30 p.m. Students with Parent Pick-Up will be dismissed from the Gymnasium Door,  beginning at 3:25 p.m.
  • Parents will not come into the building for P.M. dismissal.
  • Proceed slowly to the Red Curb on the front right side of the building (same as a.m. arrival). 
  • A staff member outside will get the student name from you, and radio into our dismissal team in the gymnasium. Drivers remain in vehicles. The dismissal team inside the gym will electronically sign your student out.
  • 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. Email Denise Chiacchia at: chiaccde@egcsd.org or Carissa Spencer at spencerca@egcsd.org.
  • If our staff is unfamiliar with you, please be prepared to show identification upon request.
