Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

Morning Arrival Notice

(Reference the following picture for specifics)

 

Families are to use the left (outside) lane starting near the tennis court.  Please do not cross the double yellow line until you get on school grounds near the tennis courts when it turns into a single yellow line.  From that point cars are to remain in the outer lane the entire way around the building. No cars are permitted in the inner lane closest to the Jr. high building.  This lane is reserved for school buses only.  

When dropping off your child, pull all the way forward to the end of the median near Laird Avenue and the front tennis courts.    Doing so allows for students in multiples cars to exit at one time.  If all pull up directly across from the Jr. High main entrance one car at a time and then students exit, we encounter a great deal of congestion around the building.   

Please do not cross traffic at any time when departing school property in the direction of the Police Department.   Also, do not block the intersection near the Police Department.   Doing either hinders the bus drivers' ability to navigate the turn on to school property and delays student departure times.  Please use caution while on school grounds during both morning arrival and dismissal times.

Students can enter the building after 7:30 AM.  Homeroom begins promptly at 8:00 AM.  Student not in their homeroom at the 8:00 AM bell will be marked tardy.  A Grab-N-Go breakfast is served until 8:00 AM




Dismissal / Student Pick-Up Notice

(Reference the following picture for specifics)

 

Students walking home from school or picked -up will be dismissed at 2:55 PM.

Families picking-up students are to wait in the designated area by the first initial of the student’s last name.  These areas are located along the curb near the front entrance to the Jr. High and along the hillside in the back of the building (near soccer/football field).   The locations students will exit the building and the designated pick-up areas are noted on the following picture by the first letter of the student’s last name.

After your child has entered your vehicle, please do not pull around other vehicle in order to quickly depart school grounds.  Use extreme caution when exiting school grounds via the outer lane to prevent an accident or injury.  The inner lane is designated for school uses only.  

Please do not cross traffic at any time when departing school property in the direction of the Police Department.  Also, do not block the intersection near the Police Department.   Doing either hinders the bus drivers' ability to navigate the turn on to school property and delays student departure times.  Again, please use caution while on school grounds during both morning arrival and dismissal times.

 

Student riding a bus home from school will be called to their bus when upon arrival.

Families

As we all know the weather is very difficult to accurately predict.  Therefore, we ask families to develop a plan with their children in the event the District has to call a Two-Hour Delay, an unplanned Early Dismissal or cancellation.   Additionally, we ask that families please notify the school office in the event of a change to any contact information.  This is very helpful to make certain that District phone blasts and emails are received.   


Another avenue utilized to make certain all are aware of cancellations, delays, etc. is via Remind.  If you have not already done so, please visit the section on this website and follow the steps to do so.  This is just another way we attempt to keep our families informed.  If you have more than one student at the Jr. High, please only select one grade level when registering for Remind notifications.
