Drop-off and Pickup Policies

Drop-off and Pickup Policies

Keep your child by your side at all times when dropping off or picking up. Your child needs to walk inside the school and on all school grounds. Please, no running in the hallway. Parents do not enter the classrooms during drop off or pick up times.

Parents and authorized Guardians must Sign-In or Sign-Out the child when dropping off or picking up respectively. Ask a staff member for the Sign-In/Sign-Out terminal.

PHOTO IDENTIFICATION IS REQUIRED OF ANYONE, INCLUDING PARENTS, PICKING UP A CHILD. Photo ID could be asked for each time your child is picked up.

Pick-up Authorization
Release of your child will be made only to authorized parties in this order of preference:

  1. To parents
  2. To authorized individuals on your list
  3. To any person with written permission to pick up your child


  • No early arrivals without prior arrangements.
  • A staff member will greet your child at the half glass door located by the reception area and walk them into the classroom.
  • Children must be escorted into the building.


  • Proceed to the pick-up point (half glass door located by the reception area) and make sure a staff member notices you.
  • A staff member will bring your child to the door.
  • You might be required to show a photo-id if the staff member does not recognize you
  • Your child is your responsibility after the pick-up point.
  • If you have not picked up your child by 3:45 pm (11:45am for Morning Half Day Students) he/she will join the extended day program. Charges for the extended day care, if not paid for at enrollment time, are $1.00 per minute. We allow a grace period of 100 minutes per month. However, the delay must not exceed 15 minutes on a given day.

Tardy Arrival

  • All the students must be at school by 8:30am.
  • Students coming between 8:30 and 8:45 will be gently rushed in by the Principal
  • Students coming in between 8:45am and 9:00am will be asked to explain their being late
  • Anyone coming after 9:00am will have to return home and come back after lunch. Exceptions will only be made for those who are generally punctual.

Early Dismissal
If an early dismissal is necessary, we request that a written note be sent to the teacher that morning. This will allow us to have your child ready and will not cause disruption to the learning environment of the classroom.

Parking Lot Safety
For the safety of everyone:

  • All children must be escorted in and out of school by an adult. Please watch siblings in the parking lot. This is not a play area.
  • Do not leave your car running while dropping off or picking up your child. You are required to be with and supervise your child and keep him/her within 3 feet of you at all times before drop-off and after pick-up.{/slide}
