Dear NCES Parents.
We are excited to begin the 2019-2020 school year. To ensure the safety of our students, we would like to remind you of our drop off and pick up procedures.
Student drop off begins at 7:00 am each morning. All students must be dropped off in the back loop of the school. Parents may walk their child(ren) in the first week. Classroom doors will open at 7:30am. If you plan on walking your child in the first week, please park in a parking spot. Do not block the drop off lanes. All students must be in class by 7:45am.
Students will be released beginning at 2:05. Bus and daycare riders will proceed to the appropriate location at that time. If you did not receive a bus pass during verification you will need to make alternate arrangements for pick up until you are assigned a bus pass.
Afternoon car riders in grades kindergarten, first or second grade (along with older siblings) must be picked up in the school's front car loop.
Afternoon car riders in grades third, fourth or fifth grade must be picked up in the school's back car loop.
All cars picking up students must display the school-issued car rider number. Please leave this number displayed until your child is loaded into your car. Students will not be released to parents that walk up with a number. Students will only be released to parents in the car pool lines.
We ask for patience from our parents during release time for the first couple of weeks. We are most concerned with safety and not speed during these weeks. Once students and parents learn the release process it will begin to run faster and smoother.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Jessica Burnett
