Procedures

Absences:

If your child will be late or absent, please call the nurse, Mrs. Andreski at (908) 647-2313 ext. 1123 as soon as possible.

Arrival/Dismissal Procedures:

When dropping off or picking up a child, please do not use the driveway in front of the building, they are only for buses. All vehicles must enter the school from the west side of the building and go around. Traffic will move one way around to the back of the building.

All drop-offs and pick-ups will be on the East side of the building. Parents should pull up to the top of the drop off zone. All students should exit or enter cars from the sidewalk. There is no parking along the car line. Parents should remain in their cars to keep the flow of traffic moving and to ensure the safety of all students and staff. Please have your child's name in the front windshield of your car so we are able to read it.

Students dropped off in the drop-off zone will proceed up the stairs to the side of the school and go to their classroom.

All car riders and/or walkers will be dismissed by their teacher out the east side door when the bell rings at 3:05PM.

If you need to walk your child into school, please park in a parking spot of the school, not in the car line, not in the bus line and not in the Senior Center.

Students are not to be dropped off before 8:45 AM. Students arriving after 9:00 AM when the bell rings, will be marked tardy.

School doors are locked at 9:00 AM. If arriving after this time, please enter through the front door and come to the Main Office to sign your child in.

Change in Dismissals:

If you must pick up your child early, or your child's dismissal routine is different, send a note to the teacher. The note should be on a fairly large sheet of paper, not a POST IT note. When you arrive to pick up your child, come to the Main Office and we will call for your child. Do not go to the classroom, as this will disrupt instruction.

* Please do not leave messages for pick-ups or absences on a teacher's voice mail or e-mail as it may not be checked until the end of the school day.

Notices:

Check your child's backpack/folder each day for notices. Check the school website and calendar for important information. Sign up to receive E-Blasts.
