If you are picking your student up in the DRIVE UP LINE only, your child will now be a "wheels" child.
They will be waiting out front.
If you are getting out of your car or walking to the school to pick up your child, they are a "meet and greet" child and will be
out back on the playground.
Please discuss this and decide if your child will be a
"wheels" or a "meet and greet" child each day.
Also, kindergarten and 1st grade students will need to be signed-out with the adult on duty.
This change is a result of the extreme foot traffic in front of the school during dismissal time. We appreciate your help in making this transition to the new procedures
as smooth as possible.
