We are looking forward to having our Comets here with us tomorrow for the first day of school! We just wanted to send you a few reminders to ensure the day goes as smoothly as possible.
The front doors will open at 7:20 a.m. The classroom doors will be open at this time as well, so students can go into their classrooms right away. Beginning on Wednesday, students will wait outside their classrooms until 7:30 a.m. We prefer to have students settled in their rooms by 7:40 a.m. so they will be ready for the school announcements at 7:45 a.m.
You are welcome to drop students off using either of our two pick-up/drop-off lines, or you are welcome to walk your child into the building. If you plan to park and walk your child into the building, please make sure to use the side parking lot that is labeled “Staff and Visitor Parking”. We try to minimize traffic in front of the school as parking is limited and we have many students who walk to school and use the crosswalk in the front parking lot.
The dismissal bell will ring at 2:45 p.m. You are welcome to pick your child up using either of our two pick-up/drop-off lines. Students who are using the pick-up/drop-off lines will exit the building through the side doors closest to the line they will be using. Make sure your child knows which line you will be using. We will have all walking students and bike riding students exit the building through the front door of the school. Please plan a meeting place with your child so that you can be easily located.
Please plan a meeting spot outside of the school building as our hallways get crowded during dismissal time.
