Car Rider Information  

 

Dear Parents,

If your child is to be a permanent car rider, there are a few procedural steps that must be followed in order to keep everyone safe.

 

1.      Drivers must have a name sign posted clearly for us to see. Please place it on your visor, front window, or side window. (sitting on the dash board does not make it visible.)

We will provide as many signs as needed for the drivers.

(example: grandparents, mom and dad, babysitter, etc.)

2.      Drivers must stay in a single linecoming into the parking area.

3.      Students are not allowed in the parking area. They must enter the car from the sidewalk area. Students are expected to remain quietly inside the building so they can hear their name being called.

4.     Aides will open the passenger side door, but are not responsible for buckling in the child.

5.      Three cars at a time will be loaded. Please pull up 3 cars at a time to the marked sections of the sidewalk.

6.     Morning car riders are NOT to be dropped off at the Main entrance of the building. This is for our busses only. Morning car riders are to be dropped off at the West entrance no earlier than 8:30 am. There is no supervision before then.

 

Our primary concern is the SAFETY of all of our CHILDREN!

 

These steps will become increasingly necessary with winter months and ice. The back driveway can become quite difficult to maneuver during these times. Please remain patient through the dismissal process. *Please complete below.

·         All car riders should be dropped off at the car rider west entrance (not the main school entrance) no earlier than 8:30 for breakfast, the first bell rings at 8:40 and school begins at 8:50.

·         For dismissal drivers must have a name SIGN posted clearly, please let us know if you need another sign. Have your license available for verification if you do not have a sign.

·         Drivers must stay in a single line in the parking area. Wait to move forward or exit until the car in front of you moves. For our students’ safety DO NOT pull around another car.

·         Three cars at a time will be loaded, please pull close to the curb.

·         Aides will open the passenger side door and students should enter and exit through the passenger side door only.

·         Students are not allowed in the parking area at any time.

Our primary concern is to keep our children SAFE while maintaining a smooth and efficient dismissal. We have met with our students to reinforce arrival and dismissal procedures. Thank you for your cooperation!

Thank you for working together with us!

Mrs. Barnes
