Safety Measures
    Building Access
    • All doors, including the main entrance will be locked during the school day.
    • All visitors must enter and exit the building using the main entrance before, during and after school.  Staff and students are not permitted to open up any door for visitors.
    • Visitors must sign in and out at the main office and wear a visitors badge while in the building.
    • With the exception of six visitor parking spaces, all others in the school parking lot are reserved for staff.
    • If you drive your child to school, please park along Belmont Dr, So. Ashby Ave, or Hillside Ave. There is no parking, drop-off or pick-up in the oval or school parking lot. Unfortunately, the school was not designed to accommodate this type of traffic pattern.
    • Please follow all traffic safety rules when dropping off children.
    Morning Arrival
    • All students not involved in early morning activities will line up inside the building. Supervision begins at 7:35 a.m. Do not leave your child unattended prior to that time.  Students can only enter the building from Door #9 (Kindergarten) or Door #5 (lower gym).
    • Students and parents should always use the stairs or path to access the blacktop. Running or walking down the hill is dangerous.
    • Students participating in early morning instructional activities - Band, Chorus, Orchestra, GT Art, or GT Music - may be dropped off at the main entrance at 7:30 a.m.
    • The bell rings at 7:50 a.m. The late bell rings at 7:55 a.m. and students arriving after the bell are considered tardy and must report to the office.
    • Students in grade 3 and above may ride their bicycles to school with parental permission.  Parents must notify teachers of such students. They may enter via So. Ashby or Belmont and use the bicycle racks in either area.
    Afternoon Dismissal
    • All students in grades 1-5 will be dismissed at 2:37 p.m. in accordance with the Student Dismissal from School policy and procedures.  Kindergarteners will be dismissed from their assigned door at 2:30 p.m.
    • Students will be dismissed onto to the blacktop following these assignments:

      Students are to be picked up at one of the following locations: 

         -  Door #9: Kindergarten and 1st grade
         -  Door #7 - Grades 2 and 3
         -  Door #6 - Grades 4 and 5
    • If siblings are to meet it is important that you designate a meeting place.
