Pick-Up and Drop-Off Procedures

Drop-Off

Two Options for "Driving" Walkers: College Ave. is one-way going north at drop-off:

1. Pull up to the car drop-off line at the College Ave. curbside cut-out.

• Drive up to the forward-most spot available so others can pull in behind you.

• Discharge on curb-side ONLY.

• Don’t double park and let your child walk between cars to get to the curb.

• Don’t discharge your child until you are IN the cut-out

Do not get out of the car. A staff member will open the door and assist your child out of the car.

• Staff will supervise kids as they walk to Courtyard Door F.

• The safety of the children is our primary concern.

2. Park your car in a legal parking spot and walk your child to Courtyard Door F.

• Don’t park in the College Ave. cut-out, in either staff parking lot, in the Mt. Hebron Rd. circular drive, or blocking a resident’s driveway, even “just for a minute.”

• There is plenty of parking in the neighborhood, but give yourselves a few extra minutes to get to school on time. The township is vigilant about enforcing the rules and has reminded the school that they will be ticketing frequently if a car is parked illegally.

• Do not park at the yellow curb (College Ave and Mt. Hebron).

• Do not park beyond the 'No Parking from here to the Corner' sign.  

• Parking is allowed on only one side of the street.  Please do not park on the 'No Parking' side of the street.

Dropping off "Walking" Walkers:

Walk your child to Courtyard Door F (not the front school doors). Doors don't open until 8:40 a.m. and close promptly at 8:50. For your child's safety, you must bring him or her to the school's main entrance after 8:50. Please allow your child to walk into the building/to the classroom by him/herself. They can do it – really! We have plenty of "morning duty" adults posted in the hallways in the school to ensure that your child gets to his or her destination safely.

Biking to School:

The bike rack is located outside the music room near the College Ave. parking lot. Children should enter through Courtyard Door F. Don't forget to wear a helmet and bring a bike lock!

Late Drop-Off:

If you arrive after 8:50 a.m. and don't see a staffer at the College Ave. curb cut-out, don't drop your child off there. Courtyard Door F will be locked. Use the front doors on Mt. Hebron Rd. Students must report to the office to get a late pass.

Pick-Up

Pick-Up: At dismissal, (3:05p.m.) walkers are dismissed in the courtyard. All students who are walkers must be released to the parent(s), legal guardian(s), or escort(s) designated by the parent or legal guardian (P-5142.2). Any parent(s) or legal guardian(s) who would like their child to walk home alone must submit written consent to the office in order for the child to be released on his/her/their own.

 

Bussers are released when they hear their bus called and walk directly to their bus. If a parent or legal guardian or designee is not at the bus stop, the child will be taken to the next school on the bus’s daily route. Be sure that someone is waiting for the child at the bus stop when the bus arrives to avoid this hassle.

 

Please note: If your child has a play date with another child, they may not take a bus home unless it is his/her/their regular bus. If it is his/her/their bus and the stop is changing, then you will need to send a note for the bus driver/aide, and also notify the Transportation Department at 973-509-4055. Please note that children are not allowed to switch to a different bus for any reason unless authorized by Transportation.

 

Dismissal time is a very busy time of day; please make sure to call the office before 2:30 p.m. if there is a change in your child’s dismissal plans. A note is the best way to get a message to your child’s teacher.
