Student Drop-Off (8:30–9:00AM) Use the turn around driveway adjacent to the playground on Florence St. Please pull up to the front door of the school to the staff members and drop off students. Students will walk into school. NO students should arrive before 8:30AM unless they are attending the Before School Program.

Student Pick-Up (3:15–3:30PM) Parents will loop around the playground and drive to the far left of the building to the outdoor classroom with their family sign displayed in their windshield (family signs will be given to students on the first day of school.) Parents will remain in their cars. Staff will meet the cars, communicate by walkie-talkie to staff indoors, and escort each child to their assigned cars. No student will be dismissed to any adult not listed on their Parent Pickup form. Special or unexpected pick-ups will be form the main office. We ask that early pickups occur NO LATER than 2:50 PM unless in emergency situation, due to the preparation of bus dismissal.

Every Monday (or Tuesday if Monday is a holiday) your child will bring home their Blue Folder that will contain important notices for that week. Please make sure to look for it and make sure the Blue Folder goes back to school the next day.

Tardy/Absences If your child will be absent or late, please call our child-safe number 508.841.8886 and leave your child’s full name, grade, teacher, and reason for absence or tardiness.
