ARRIVAL 

Parents must use the new drive entrance off Decker Prairie-Rosehill Rd on south side east entrance to the back of the school. The driveway will circle around the school enabling parents to form two lines at the stop sign. Keep in mind that when forming the two lines, the right lane must turn right on Decker Prairie-Rosehill Rd. and the left must turn left on Decker Prairie-Rosehill Rd.
 
The student drop off zones will be at the end of the circle drive on the north side of the school, right of the front entrance. The drive near the front entrance of the school is now designated for bus drop off and pick up.
 
Parents that are having breakfast with their student, delivering items left at home, visiting the nurse or are meeting the teacher may enter through the front of the school. 
 

Children will be allowed to enter the school at 8:10 AM.  Please do not drop off your child before this time.  The YMCA is offering before school care which will begin at 6:45 AM if you should need it.  

 

During inclement weather, the line moves slower than usual so you should probably leave a little earlier on these days.  Students who arrive after 8:40 will be counted tardy.

 

DISMISSAL

 

Dismissal will begin at 3:50 pm. The student pick up zone will be at the end of the circle drive on the north side of the school, right of the front entrance.  You will be given a card to place in the front window of your car which states your child’s name and grade.  Please make sure it is visible each day when you come to pick up your child in the car rider line. Your child’s name will be called and will be lined up when you drive to one of the assigned spots.  A staff member will help them into your vehicle.  Keep in mind when forming the two lines, the right lane must turn right onto Decker Prairie-Rosehill Road and the left must turn left on Decker Prairie-Rosehill Rd.    A staff member will walk out children who are walking home or riding a bicycle. You may meet your child on the school side of the street.

 

Parents will not be allowed to park and come pick up their child from the building during dismissal.

 

If your child needs to be signed out at the end of the day, you will need to sign them out before 3:30. No students will be pulled from their classes after this time, so please make arrangements to arrive at the school before this time.

   

CHANGING TRANSPORTATION

 

We understand that it is sometimes necessary to change the way a student will go home.  Please make those changes before 3:00 PM so that we can make certain that the change gets to the student.  We cannot accept changes over the phone or by email.  The change in transportation must be done either by fax, in person, or by sending a note with your child.  Our fax number is 281-357-3293.   All changes must go through the front office.
