The PTO would like to to join us on Remind 
Morning Arrival for Students in Inclement Weather
We would like to remind you that in the event of inclement weather (snow, rain, temperature below 32 degrees) students should arrive at the side door, Door #11.  The door will be opened at 8:40 AM by Mrs Metropolis, Mr Brenner or a parent volunteer who will hold the door open for the students.  Students should proceed down the stairs into the cafeteria.  Students in Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 may wait in the cafeteria at their assigned tables.  Students in Grade 3 and Grade 4 may wait in the cafeteria on the ramp.  Grade 5 students may wait in the hallway near the cafeteria under their classroom sign.  Teachers will pick their students up at 8:50 AM and escort them to their classrooms.  It is very important that your child arrives to school on time every day.  However, children should not be left unattended until the door is open by an adult.  Please try not to arrive before 8:40 AM on inclement weather days so that no one is out in the cold weather or precipitation.


* Please do not pull in the back area of the school to drop off or pick up your child.

* Please do not park under signs that say No Parking Between the Hours of 8:30 to 9:30 and 2:30 to 3:30.

* Please do not stop on Lynn Street to drop off or pick up children.

* Please do not stop in front of the school safety lane, next to Louie’s Lix where students line up, or at the circular drive way in front of the school.

* You may park in the church parking lot and walk your child to the crossing guard or to the school area.



All students are expected to arrive at school on time at 8:50 AM. The first 10 minutes of the day are used for important procedural activities such as ordering lunch, taking attendance, collecting homework, establishing routines, and completing morning work. If students are even a few minutes late, they start the day rushed and behind schedule. Please ensure that your child arrives on time each day.
