Drop-Off/Dismissal Procedures

ELI WHITNEY DROP-OFF/DISMISSAL PROCEDURES

The “valet drop-off” process is:

  • Drive into the pickup/drop-off parking area (do not park) and have your child immediately exit out the passenger side of the vehicle.
  • Pull away from the area as soon as your child leaves your car.  There is always a teacher on duty to monitor the students as they exit your car and walk to the school.
  • The drop off process is monitored by our school safety officer and a teacher.

 

The afternoon dismissal process is:

  • At 3:01 walkers and pickups are dismissed to the back of the building. 
  • Walkers are escorted to the pickup area by teachers on duty.  Teachers, along with our school security officer, monitor the pick-up process.
  • Children being picked up, wait in the designated area until a teacher directs them to load.  No children are allowed in the parking lot by themselves.
  • Bus students exit out the front doors.
  • Students waiting for their bus to be called remain in their classrooms.
  • Students are released from their classrooms when their bus number is called.


Advance notice is very much appreciated if you are picking up your child from school early.
