Before and After School Procedures

Please follow these rules for the safety of our children

 

Students are not permitted anywhere on campus before 8:00 am (by the school clock) unless they are going to the before school program. Breakfast is not served until 8:00 am.

Breakfast ends at 8:25 am.

If your student is tardy in the morning, arriving after 8:25 am,  an adult MUST come into the office and sign the student in and a pass will be given to the student to head to class. 

 

CHECK-OUT POLICY/LEAVING EARLY

WE DO NOT CHECK STUDENTS OUT AFTER 2:15. Leaving school prior to the dismissal time will be counted as an absence if the dismissal time exceeds two hours. 

In the event you need to check out your child, you must come to the office with a valid photo I.D.  and be at least 18 years of age. Students may only be checked out by those who are on the pickup list.  We will not make any exceptions. At any time during the school year, legal guardians can add or delete any names on the emergency list by going to their ParentVue account. 

STUDENT PICK-UP/DROP-OFF PROCEDURES

  • Student drop-off and pick-up is along the EAST side of campus. Traffic runs from north (Eastridge) to south (Constitution) LEFT TURN ONLY
  • Families walking to school are asked to use the crosswalk at the west gate on Chelwood and Constitution or the crosswalk on La Charles and Constitution. 
  • The south (front) parking lot is for DAYCARE VANS AND STAFF ONLY. The only exception is if you have a handicap parking placard. 

The north (back) parking lot is closed all day. There is no entrance or exit for families. 

 

KINDERGARTEN DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP

  • Located on the south side of the campus on Constitution and La Charles
  • Families dropping off kindergarten students will use the 1st family drop off entrance west of La Charles
  • Follow the arrows. Do not allow your child to get out of your vehicle until you see a Chelwood staff member. 
  • Exit the drop off lane is RIGHT TURN ONLY

PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE FRONT PARKING LOT. IT IS FOR DAYCARE BUSES ONLY.

Vehicles with handicapped tags must park their vehicle and walk their student to and from their car. Unless arrangements have been made in the school office, you may not just drop off your child off in the parking lot. It is for the safety of the students that you wait until all daycare buses have left the parking lot before you leave. 

Obey the person who is directing cars and students...without exception. If you don't, there could be a real tragedy.. and you will be held liable.

There are no exceptions to these rules, and if you get angry or upset because your are"late" or "the line is too slow" ...we are doing the best we can, but we will not allow unsafe acts, and we will tell you if you are going against these rules. WE ARE HERE TO PROTECT AND SAFEGUARD OUR STUDENTS. 

 

FAMILIES WHO REFUSE TO FOLLOW OUR SAFETY STANDARDS MAY LOSE ACCESS TO OUR CAMPUS.
