** STUDENTS MUST STOP IN MAIN OFFICE BEFORE LEAVING **
If you are picking you student up early from school, please sign them out on the sign out sheet that is located between the front doors. Students will be called down. Please help remind them not to just leave, they need to scan their ID's in the main office before they leave. If they are coming back to school, parents do not need to walk them in, students will check in at the main office and scan their ID's back in.
Did your student forget something at home?
If your child forgets something at home, you can drop it off at school if it is essential. There are bins in the front entrance for each grade level. Students can check those bins during a passing period or during lunch. We cannot disrupt class every time a student forgets something.
We all forget things once in a while, however if your student is chronically forgetting things, it may be helpful to pack up backpacks the night before to avoid the morning rush. Once routines are established, sometimes, the best way to help them be prepared is to let them experience the natural consequences of being unprepared once or twice.
If it is a forgotten lunch, all students can receive a free hot lunch. There is no need to bring a lunch to school.
Drop off and Pick up
If you live close enough for your student to walk to and from school, please let them do that! There are crossing guards on duty to help them cross the roads safely.
A reminder about drop off and pick up, please pull forward in the drop off lane as far as you can before your student exits or enters your car. This helps keep traffic moving and prevents traffic backing up down Sheehan. All students should be dropped off and picked up in the lane in front of Glen Crest along Sheehan (see photo below).
Please do not enter the school lot during arrival and dismissal unless your child needs special assistance or you have a reason to come to the office. Also, please pay attention to the crossing guards and help us keep all of our students safe!
During dismissal, you may want to consider arranging a meeting place with your student on one of the side streets around Glen Crest. this may save you time in the drop off lane and help with traffic.
