Kindergarten and 1st grade students who ride the bus to school will be dropped off and picked up at the circle drive area at Wilson and Union Streets. Kindergarten and 1st grade students who walk or are brought to school should arrive no earlier than 8:00 AM. Students who are dropped off may enter the playground using entrances from Monticello St. on the east side of the playground or Grant St. on the south side of the playground. Small Wonders students should report to the main entrance at Buchanan St. at their arrival time.
Dismissal Procedures: Small Wonders and Mrs. Beauchamp’s students will meet parents/guardians/daycare providers on Grant Street.
Kindergarten and 1st Grade Students Riding the Bus:
If we cannot wait outside then the students will wait in the Kindergarten hallway until the bus they ride arrives. Teachers will take students to the buses.
Kindergarten and 1st Grade Students Being Picked-up to Walk [home or to a parked car]:
Meet the student at the Grant St. gate to the playground on the southside by the basketball hoops. Your student’s teacher will send the child to meet you [from the blacktop if we are outside or from the gym if we are inside]. Please remember to be courteous of neighbors’ yards and driveways if you need to park on a side street. As much as we try, we do not always recognize the adult who is waiting for each student. Please bring your child’s name sign so that we can ensure we are releasing the student to the correct person.
Kindergarten and 1st Grade Students Being Picked-up by Car:
Please follow the designated route in order to pick up on Monticello Street. Remain in your vehicle at all times. Have the sign with your student’s name and class in your passenger window or front window where it is easily visible to staff. Follow street signs and do not block nearby driveways. To ensure everyone’s safety, stay alert and follow staff directions to the loading zone. Stay in the vehicle and have your child enter the car through the passenger side only. Please remember cell phones can not be used in a school zone.
If you are picking up your child and do not feel he or she can open the passenger side door and buckle independently, please park on a side street and walk up to get your child at the Grant Street gate.
Reminders: Students who shuttle to Lincoln from a different school will arrive at Lincoln after our dismissal begins. Those students will still pass through the playground gate on Grant Street. Please communicate with your White Heath or Washington student to tell them where you will be waiting for them to meet you.
If someone is going to pick up your child who does not typically pick them up then please share our pick up procedures with them.
Again, thank you for your patience as we dismiss the students to you as quickly as we are able while making sure they are safe.
If your child's after school transportation arrangements change please complete a "Change in Transportation" form to send to school to your child's teacher.
