Please be mindful of the following procedures, as they are a safeguard for all of our students.
Safety: Your child’s safety is critical to us, and we carefully monitor arrival as to keep all of our children safe. Please say goodbye to your child at the front door. No parents/visitors shall be in the hallways or visiting classrooms unless a prior appointment is set up with the teacher and/or principal. This is to ensure that your child will be safe and that classroom instruction will not be interrupted. If you need to go to the office, please park your car in the east lot (near the dumpsters) and enter in the front doors of the building. As per District Policy, all visitors must sign in at the front office and wear a visitor’s badge or sticker.
Arrival: It is crucial that every child arrives to school on time. School begins at 9:10 a.m. and we begin instruction at 9:20 a.m. Please do not drop off your child in the front area of the school. This space is reserved for buses ONLY during the hours of 8:45-9:30 a.m. and after 3:30 p.m. If your child is late to school, then you must park in the east lot and walk them to the office and sign them in.
If you need to bring your child a lunch, it must be dropped off in the office and we will deliver it to the classroom. If you are eating lunch with your child, you must sign in at the office and obtain a visitor’s badge or sticker.
Dismissal: All students (except car riders and daycare) will be escorted to their assigned areas to be dismissed. After all classes are assembled, students will be escorted outside to each bus. Students who are car riders will wait in a supervised area (room 13). Parents/Guardians who are picking up their children are asked to park in the west lot (near playground off of Corbett Road) and enter through the back doors to room 13 then sign their child out. Daycare riders exit from the gym.
All children need to be picked up by 4:10 p.m.
***Please remember if you need to change your child’s mode of transportation, please send a note to school with your child that morning. It is extremely busy in the office at the end of the day. A note in the morning will ensure us time to get all requests and messages to each teacher so your child will get home safely.
We ask for your support and patience with our procedures. As always, our goal is for Primary South to be a safe learning environment where all students are inspired to dream and challenged to achieve.
