Arrival - Dismissal Procedures
** EFFECTIVE 2017 - 2018 THERE IS A CHANGE IN THE STUDENT DROP OFF/PICK UP PROCEDURE Parents/Guardians will drop-off and pick-up students using the northern-most entrance on Main Avenue. The southern-most entrance on Main Avenue will be blocked off. When dropping off or picking up, please follow the curb on the right/West side of the parking lot around to and past the main entrance. Traffic will be one-way only within the parking lot. A staff member will open the passenger side door to let your child out. No parking will be allowed along the curb. If you choose to park and walk your child into/out of school, please park in the middle of the parking lot. To combat wait-time and congestion, we would encourage that your student ride the bus when possible, as this practice will alleviate parking lot congestion at the beginning/end of the school day.
Dismissal Procedure: If you are picking up your child, you will need to park your car and wait for the student just inside the front door. The teacher will bring your child to you.
Walkers will be escorted by the teacher to meet the crossing guard at the front door. The crossing guard will help students cross Main Avenue.
Students who do not take the bus to school can arrive no earlier than 7:20 a.m.
School closings, late starts, and early dismissal information will be announced on WCCO, KARE, FOX 9, and KSTP television stations. Parents will also be notified via phone and e-mail via SchoolView. It is important for parents to keep phone and e-mail information updated in Schoolview to receive emergency information.
Parents are reminded to plan ahead for emergency school closings. If school closes early, students will be sent to their usual destination. Due to the large volume of phone calls during these situations, office personnel will not call parents.
Picking Up Your Child Early
If you are picking your child up early, send a note. Please arrive ten minutes early to allow time for your child to be excused from class, to gather their belongings, and to be signed out in the office by parents or guardians.
Students have recess daily. If the temperature or wind chill is below zero degrees, students will have indoor recess. Please dress your student for the weather.
To ensure the safety of all of our students, all visitors to our school must enter our school using door A. All other doors are locked.
Volunteers, Chaperones, and Background Checks
Parents are welcome and encouraged to volunteer and chaperone. All volunteers and chaperones will be required to complete and pay for district background checks. For information about background checks, refer to the STMA/Parents web site.
