• Arrival and Dismissal Procedures Pinedale Elementary School 2019-2020
    Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

     

     

    For the safety of our students, please follow these procedures:

    Arrival
    ● Students should not arrive at school prior to 7:20 a.m. unless transported by a school bus.
    ● Students arriving to school in a car should ALWAYS be dropped off in the car line located by the gym and enter the building by the gym door.                                  
    NEVER drop off students in any of the parking lots, unless you are parking at the brick Pinedale sign in front of the school and escorting them to the Pinedale staff member on bus duty.
    ● Drive vehicles all the way up to the first cone when dropping off in the car line. This
    allows as many as 8 cars to drop off their children at the same time and clear out traffic sooner.
    ● Children should be prepared to exit the car in a timely and efficient manner.
    ● The driveway by the front office is for school buses and daycare vans ONLY.
    ● Students are counted tardy if they are not in their classrooms by 8:00 a.m.

    Dismissal
    ALL car riders will exit out the gym door.
    ● Car passes will be required daily. Have them visible in your car or in your hand.
    ● Please make arrangements for your child(ren) to be picked by 3:20 p.m.
    ● Students designated as WALKERS should be walking off campus - not walking to their
    parent’s car in the parking lot.
    ● We prefer all cars to go through the car line. If you must walk up to get your child, come to the front of the school and write your child’s name on the form by the main entrance doors. You will need to park in the parking lot in front of the brick Pinedale sign or on the side of the road by the playground fence and follow these procedures:

         ○ Have your car pass in hand.
         ○ Stand in the designated area out front for parents.
         ○ Wait in the designated area until someone calls for your child.
         ○ Children will exit the building and then be escorted by you to your vehicle.

    DISMISSAL DURING THE FIRST DAYS OF SCHOOL CAN BE FRUSTRATING FOR EVERYONE.  WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND POSITIVE ATTITUDE AS WE WORK TO PROVIDE THE SAFEST ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR CHILDREN.
