Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

  • The safety of our children is of utmost importance at all times. This includes arrival and dismissal. Please note the following to ensure the arrival and dismissal processes flow smoothly and safely.

    Arrival and Dismissal:    

    • Car Students — 7:45–8:15 a.m. is arrival time; dismissal begins at 2:45 p.m.

      • Arrival: 
        Please pull forward in the car line in the parking lot to drop off your child/ren at the side door where a staff member will be waiting. Your child's temperature will be taken once they are inside, and you will be given a thumbs up signal when it's okay to leave.

        After 8:15 a.m. It is important for students to arrive at school on time. If occasionally something occurs causing you to arrive after 8:15 a.m., please park in the parking lot and bring your child/ren to the Main Office. After we take your child's temperature, you may leave.

      • Dismissal: 
        At dismissal time, teachers will be with the students on the sidewalk along the side of the school on the parking lot side. They will escort each one to your car. Stay in the car line and just slowly pull ahead where the teachers will be waiting with each child. Please be patient the first days of school until everyone adjusts to the timing and flow of traffic. The safety of each child is our top priority. Cars may arrive between 2:40 p.m. and 2:55 p.m. to help alleviate congestion and the traffic flow.

        All car students must be picked up in the car line, no exceptions.

        A student may be picked up before dismissal time only when necessary for an appointment. Please call the Main Office at 585.458.3786 to notify us of an early pickup time.

    • Bus Students — In the morning, buses drop off students on Flower City Park.
      A staff member will greet students as they arrive. A second staff member will be at the door to watch students come up the walk and let them in. Other staff members will take students' temperatures and check them in as they enter the school. The safety of all is our top priority.

    Extended Care Program: Please park in a non-reserved space, come to the left side door by the parking lot, and ring the buzzer. A staff member will verify your identity and buzz you in to the building. Proceed up the stairs to sign out your child/ren. 

    NOTE: If a child has not been picked up by 3 p.m., she/he will be sent to Extended Care and you will be charged a $35 fee. We understand once in a while there is a traffic delay or one runs late from an appointment. Call us at 585.458.3786 if this happens so we can let your child know you are on your way.

    Thank you for your support and cooperation!
