Drop off and pick up are slow in the beginning. Allow plenty of time so you aren't rushed and be kind and courteous. See below for more on drop off and pick up so you can help it go smoothly.
- We are fortunate that our school allows parents to walk their children in the first two days of school. The first day you will be able to walk your children to their classrooms. The second day you can walk your children to their designated waiting areas before classrooms are open so that they will know where to wait. Be sure to give your child enough time to get settled and seated without you before 7:30 am. Parents should be out of the classroom by 7:20 am.
- You will be sent home a LARGE packet of paperwork on the first day. Complete and return by the following Monday to help your teacher and the school stay on top of all of the paperwork.
- If you are interested in being a room parent or volunteering, speak up at Meet the Teacher. Room Parents are so important to our school and we have amazing guidance to help you through the whole thing. Team up for more fun!
- Beginning of the year fees. There are Classroom fees and PTO fees. Classroom fees are mandatory. PTO fees are optional but highly recommended. Help your room parent by getting your fees in ASAP.
- The first PTO meeting is on the first day of school in the cafeteria! Come for coffee and treats and hear from our principal, administrators, and our PTO.

Want to be involved but nervous about how time-consuming it will be or if you can do it with a little one on your hip?

- The Visitor Parking Lot should not be used as a carpool drop off or pick up. You may park and walk your child in if there is an open space.
- Please turn right into the carpool loops and do not turn left, crossing traffic to drop off as this causes traffic back ups and cuts in the carpool line.

- CAR TAGS: Each family will be provided two car tags that have your child’s name, grade, and teacher. You must have this tag to pick up whether you are using the carpool line or walking up.
- If there is a change in your child’s pick up schedule, please notify your child’s teacher or the main office in writing.
