• Getting Your Child To & From School

    Breakfast begins at 8:30 A.M. in the cafeteria.  

    Adult supervision begins at 8:50 A.M.
    To insure continuity and maximum advantage of our school program, students must attend school each day, and be on time for school so they don't miss the important morning procedures which set them up for a successful day.


    Bus Students:

    will be dropped off at the front of the building and proceed directly into school, accompanied by staff members.


    will enter the back playground from Wilton Street, Cashman Road gate or the side driveway of the School.

    Drop-off and Parking:

    Students dropped off by car may be dropped off at the surrounding streets - Wilton Street, Cashman Road, and at the side driveway of the school, and walk to the back school yard.

    All regular school personnel will park in the Wilton Street parking lot. For the safety of the students, no one is allowed to enter and turn around in that lot.

    Parking for Passos Avante Pre-school will be in the Cashman Road lot.

    If a parent is planning on leaving his or her car for any amount of time, that parent must park on the side streets.


    Where Students Line Up:

    Students will line up by grade and be escorted into school by a staff member when the bell rings.

    Dismissal Schedule:

    All walkers will be dismissed from the green doors in the back of the school.

    • Kindergarten and Grade 1 will exit the Wilton Street door.
    • Grades 3, 4, and 5 will exit the Cashman Street Back door.

    No walkers will be dismissed out the gym doors.

    Bus students and those students taking private transportation (Catholic Charities, Y.M.C.A., Karate bus, etc.) will be dismissed from the gym.

    Parents parking to pick up their children must park on any of the surrounding side streets.


    Reporting Absences:

    Absences due to illness, religious holidays, death in the family or other serious reasons are, of course, undertsood. Notes signed by a parent or guardian explaining all absences, tardiness or change or routine (such as a bus student walking, etc.) are required and should be sent to the classroom teacher.
