Our first day of school is quickly approaching!
Monday, August 25, 2014 is the first day of student attendance.
This will be a full day for all students following the regular, daily schedule.
A.M. Kindergarten 8:20A.M.-11:05A.M.
P.M. Kindergarten 12:10P.M. - 2:55P.M.
Grade 1-6 including Primary and Intermediate Developmental Learning Program 8:20A.M.- 2:55P.M.
All students in grades K(A.M.) - 6 are to go onto the playground area no earlier than 8:10A.M. When the 8:20 bell rings, students are to line up in the area designated for their specific classroom. There will be cones in the front of the lines indicating teachers' names. Staff will be available with class lists should parents or students need to know their teacher's name.
DLP students are dropped off in the driveway at the front entrance. Teachers and instructional assistants meet the students and they all walk down to class together.
P.M. Kindergarten children should arrive by noon and will meet outside the kindergarten doorway (Door #3 on Jefferson). Mrs. Barclay and other available staff will assist children in lining up and entering the school building.
Students in grades 1-6 who are picked up by car or walk home will leave the building, and are encouraged to go directly to parents in front of the building on Jefferson or on Dunham. Bus students will leave the building from doors 4, 5 or 6 and go directly to Bus # 1 or 2. These buses are parked along the side, but more toward the back of the school building. Students must board the buses as quickly as possible. Buses leave by 3:00 / 3:02, as they have other routes to complete after dropping off Hillcrest students.
A.M. Kindergarten Dismissal: Students who are picked up by car or walk home will be walked out of Door #3 and handed off to parent or caregiver. Students riding the bus home or to day-care will be walked to the front entrance of school to wait for buses. Buses will drop students off at day care or the home address. If there is no one waiting outside the home to meet the child, the driver will return the child back to school. You will receive a phone call to come to school and get the child.
P.M. Kindergarten Dismissal: Students who are picked up by car or walk home will be walked out of Door #3 and handed off to parent or caregiver.
This should help us get the year started regarding getting our students to and from school! New parents and students will become familiar with drop-off and pick-up times quickly.
