Kindergarten Carpool

Thank you for your cooperation in providing a safe environment for drop-off and pick-up.  We appreciate your patience.

Grades 1-6 Carpool

Do you want to avoid waiting so LONG in carpool?  You can solve that problem by coming later and joining the 2nd wave of cars.  Yesterday all of carpool was done by 2:50pm – that’s 30 minutes from beginning (2:20pm-2:50pm) to the last car exiting!  If you are waiting an hour before carpool/dismissal even begins, you have arrived on campus too early!

Student Appointments or Early Dismissals

Be sure to call the office when you are in the parking lot.  Remain in your car.  We will walk your child to you. 

Medication at School

During the course of the school year, your child may need to take medication at school. A “Permission to Administer Medication Form” must be completed with a physician and parent signature. All medications, OVER-THE-COUNTER and PRESCRIPTION, require a completed form and must be in their original containers. Prescription medications, including inhalers must have a prescription label. Please label OVER-THE-COUNTER medications with your student’s first and last name. Forms are available in school office or on Parents Web.
