Drop Off and Dismissal Changes 

Drop Off

  • This year, the school doors for morning drop off will open at 7:40 a.m.   For returning parents, the process will be similar to last year without temperature checks and with a few changes due to classroom moves.
  • Vehicles will drive up the driveway between the church and school (NOT the driveway between the school and the public field) at a safe pace.
  • Vehicles will proceed to the back parking lot and along the perimeter of the back parking lot.
  • As cars proceed up the school driveway along the breezeway, parents may drop off their student(s) at the following entrances:
    • Grades 6, 7, and 8:   Sabato Wing Entrance (Stop 1)
    • Grades Early Learners (PreK 3-4), Junior Kindergarten (PreK 4-5), Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 2:   Hall C (Stop 2)
    • Grades 3, 4, and 5:  Hall B (Stop 3)
  • After dropping off your student(s), proceed cautiously back onto the driveway to exit campus.

Dismissal

  • Vehicles will drive up the driveway between the church and school (NOT the driveway between the school and the public field) at a safe pace.
  • Vehicles will park in rows in the back parking lot.
  • Student dismissal will begin around 3:10 p.m.   At 3:05 p.m., we will stop vehicles coming to park in the back parking lot for dismissal.  This is for student safety reasons.
  • Walkers will be dismissed first.  Please remember that parents SHOULD NOT be picking up their Designated Walker students at the Larrymore Elementary parking lot.
  • Grade Level classes, led by their teachers, will be dismissed in a staggered manner out the gym doors.
  • Parents are asked to wait in their cars until their child / children are called to exit the school.  Then, parents may walk up to collect their child / children.stand near the gym doors to meet your student(s) and take them back to their cars and fasten their seat belts.
  • Vehicles will ONLY be directed to leave by rows after all grade level classes have exited the gym and had the opportunity to meet their parents and get into their vehicle safely.
  • Students whose parents are not in the back parking lot for dismissal will be escorted to the Parish Hall for our After C.A.R.E.S program.
  • Vehicles will be directed by row to leave via the school driveway.   Vehicles may exit cautiously either left or right onto Halprin Drive.   Please pay attention to the cones towards the end of the driveway that designates these two lanes.
  • Note – During inclement weather, alternative dismissal plans may be used.
