First Day Procedures


- Students should report to the playground area (K-2 primary playground, closest to McLaughlin,  3-5 intermediate playground, behind the school)

- Beginning at 8:10, all teachers will be out on the playground with a sign indicating their name and grade level. Students should proceed to their teacher and check in with them.

- If you do not know your child’s teacher’s name, other staff will be available on the playground to assist you.

- At approximately 8:20 teachers will line up their students and enter the building for the start of school.

- I know many of you like to drive your child/children to school on the first day. Please remember you are not allowed to drive and or park in the front of the school where busses drop off the students.

*Please note that for safety and security purposes parents should not come into the school unless they have business in the office in which case they should enter through the front door.

**If we are unlucky and it happens to be raining on the first day, students should report to the gym. Once in the gym, report to the area that has a sign for their grade level. Staff and volunteers will be available to escort your child/children to their classroom. Again for safety and security purposes, parents will be limited to the gym area.


- Once arriving at school, all students, with the exception of kindergarten, should enter through the front door and proceed to their classroom beginning at 8:10.

- Starting on the 8th …Kindergarten students should line up in the area outside of the A wing door on the primary playground. The kindergarten teachers will open the doors at 8:10 allowing students to enter the building and classrooms. Kindergarten students arriving after 8:20 should enter through the front door of the school.
