Pick Up & Drop Off

  • Controlling School Traffic is Essential for Safety

    Students should be picked up and dropped off at the car loops only. Parents wishing to park should walk their children to the front door.  Parents are not allowed to walk their children to their classrooms.

    Kindergarten students and their siblings should be dropped off (by 7:55 a.m.) and picked-up  in the Kindergarten car loop which is located on the west side of the school - on 113th Street .

    Grades 1 - 5 students should be dropped off and picked up in the front car loop. The school day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m. Students are admitted into the building at 7:30 a.m. Students entering after 8:00 a.m. are tardy and must obtain a tardy pass from the front office prior to being admitted to class.

    Students walking and biking to school are reminded to cross the streets only at the intersections or crosswalks where there is a crossing guard.

    Staff members provide outside supervision immediately before school in the morning and for ten minutes after school each day. Students must arrive at school between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. Students may not arrive at school prior to 7:30 a.m., as there is NO ADULT SUPERVISION prior to that time.

     

    DISMISSAL

    2:00 p.m. - Regular School Days

    12:00 p.m. -  Early Release Days

    All students will be dismissed according to parent directions only. If your child’s dismissal procedure changes, you must notify the front office and teacher in writing. Please do not tell your child of a change in dismissal without also notifying the office/teacher in writing. We dismiss students only according to your written directions.

     

    EARLY DISMISSAL
    Any student who must leave before the end of the school day must be signed out in the office by 1:30 p.m. In accordance with the Broward County Elementary Code of Student Conduct book, “no student shall be released within the final 30 minutes of the school day unless the principal/designee determines that it is an emergency.” Only those listed on the Emergency Contact Card will be permitted to sign out students. No child is to be released from the classroom without notification from the office.
