Arrival Procedures

K-5 students may be dropped at school starting at 7:45 am. Please enter the driveway on Ridge Rd and proceed up the driveway to the school. Pull all the way to the front of the line and stop there. Remain in your car while your child exits your car on the passenger side only. LaPerche staff will be located along the driveway to greet families and assist students during arrival. Students will enter through the main door (#1) or the walker door pick-up location (door #2). They will proceed to the cafeteria or the playground depending on the weather.

PreK students may arrive 5 minutes before their scheduled time. Students will proceed to the prek door where they will be met by LaPerche staff members.

Students who are walking to school can stand with their family members socially distanced from other families until an adult approaches to collect tickets.

Bus drop-off and pick-up will take place in the back of the building. Students will be met by LaPerche staff and enter the school through door #9. They will proceed to the cafeteria or to the playground depending on the weather.

Dismissal Procedures

The dismissal bell rings at 2:45. At that time, car riders and walkers will be dismissed.

Families will still park in the long LaPerche driveway (access the driveway on Ridge Road--it is one way only) and line up at door #2 to pick up their children. Cars may be parked on the flag pole side of the driveway only. Please do not wait for a spot to open and block the traffic behind you. You may have to take a few laps around until you find a spot to park. Just put on a great song, sing along and relax. A spot will open up quickly after dismissal starts.

As always, we ask everyone to DRIVE SLOWLY in the driveway! Let's work together to keep everyone safe.

Inside the building, there are arrows on the floor that are six feet apart from each other. During dismissal, students will each sit on an arrow as they wait to be picked up.

Students who are walking or being dismissed to families who park in the neighborhood next to the school will meet Mrs. Beckel near door #3 and be escorted to the crossing guard. Please meet your child on the school side of the crosswalk or provide written permission that they can walk home unsupervised.

Busses will be called over the intercom and students will proceed from their classrooms to the bus door. We are no longer having all bus students line up in the gym. Students will be escorted to the bus.

All of these routines and procedures will be explicitly taught to all students so they fully understand the process.
