Morning Drop-off Procedures

Parents are kindly reminded to follow the morning drop-off procedures.

These procedures have been established to ensure the safety of all our students and staff. As always, your patience and courtesy are appreciated. [DROP-OFF & PICK-UP VISUAL GUIDE]

  • Student drop-off must be from the right lane only and in front of the music door entrance. Please do not drop students off in any other place in the parking lot and not from the left lane or at the main entrance.
  • The left lane is for through traffic and parking access only. No drop-offs should occur from the left lane.
  • All student drop-offs must occur at the music door entrance ONLY (the second entrance toward the back of the building) no earlier than 7:15 a.m. and up until 7:45 a.m.*
  • Students should not be dropped off at the main entrance (the first entrance toward the front of the building) between 7:15 and 7:45 a.m.

* After 7:45 a.m., students are considered tardy and need to enter through the main entrance and report to the attendance office to sign in.


Early Pick-up Procedures


If it becomes necessary for a student to leave school early, the student should:

  • Bring a signed note from your parent/guardian to the attendance office before morning homeroom period. If you are walking to a local doctor's office, the note must state that you are walking.
  • Leave class at the excused time and wait in the Main Office. A parent/guardian must come into the Main Office to meet and sign out the student. If the student is not being picked up by a parent/guardian, the signed note from the parent/guardian must state who is picking up the student or the person must be designated as an emergency contact on the emergency information sheet handed in at the beginning of the school year.


When do I need to send in a note?

  • When a student needs to leave school early to go to an appointment.
  • Students need to have written permission from a parent/guardian on file in the Main Office if they are not riding the bus.
  • Leaving on a different dismissal than the assigned one for any reason requires a parent note and/or a bus pass from the Main Office.
