Arrival & Dismissal

Hours of Operation

The school day begins at 9:15 am and ends at 3:45 pm

Buses now drop off and pick up in the front of the school. Car riders will now be dropped off and picked up on the side of the school formerly reserved for buses.


Car Riders

Morning drop-off for car riders is on the side of the school between 8:55 a.m. and 9:15 a.m.

For student safety, the following procedures are in place:

  • Only the right lane, closest to the curb, will be used for student drop-off.
  • Drivers must stay in the vehicle.
  • Students should have backpacks ready to exit vehicles quickly.
  • Students are to exit vehicles on the sidewalk side at the colored cones.
  • Drivers will be directed to pull up to the furthest forward colored cone available to allow students to exit from several cars at a time.
  • Once students exit vehicles, cars will keep moving in a single lane and follow the ONE-WAY traffic pattern up Greenhill Road.
  • Staff members will greet students at the bus and gym doors to allow for multiple entrance points and social distancing.

School Bus Riders

Buses will drop students off in the front of the school near the front and gym doors. Two buses will be permitted to unload at one time. One group will enter through the gym doors and the other group will enter through the main lobby.


Car Riders

Parents/guardians must park in the former bus lanes on the side of the school and get out of the car to pick up their child. Parents/guardians should follow the guidance of the staff members directing traffic and park accordingly.

Car riders will be dismissed at the following times are to accommodate additional traffic and prevent back-ups on McIntyre Road. For student safety, we ask that once students are with their parent/guardian that they return to their car and depart following the one-way traffic pattern up Greenhill Road. This will help us prevent traffic being blocked and backed up at the end of the day.
