Morning Arrival and Afternoon Dismissal Guidelines

Each grade has its own door for arrival and dismissal.  A staff member will greet students at the door for a quick temperature scan and to collect entry tickets.  Once students enter beginning at 8:15 a.m., they should proceed to their homeroom:

  • KINDERGARTEN- Entry and dismissal at Door #2 (door on Granville Avenue near intersection with Monmouth Avenue).
  • FIRST GRADE- Entry and dismissal at Door #1 (main entrance on Haverford Avenue).
  • SECOND GRADE- Entry and dismissal at Door #10 (door on Schoolyard/Winchester Ave side).
  • THIRD GRADE- Entry and dismissal at Door #3 (door on Granville Avenue near intersection with Monmouth Avenue).
  • FOURTH GRADE- Entry and dismissal at Door #6 (door on Granville Avenue).
  • Multiple siblings exit with the youngest child.

Daily drop off and pick up, it is by grade and always at the same door. Students will only be dismissed to a parent or approved guardian/adult, unless the parent has sent in written permission for the child to walk home (for older students). 

Crossing Guards will be on their posts from 8am – 8:30am  and then at 12:00 – 12:30pm for dismissal. 

 

For the first day only (SEPT 3), we will have a special drop off procedure for our Kindergarten students and families.  By staggering the classes, it will allow parents to enter with their child and wish them well for their first day in Kindergarten.  Please wear masks and maintain distance between the families.

  • Mallen’s students- Enter by Door #10 (door on Schoolyard/Winchester Ave side) and go to the CAFETERIA at 8:30 a.m. and meet Ms. Mallen and Ms. Martins.
  • McGonigle’s students- Enter by Door #10 (door on Schoolyard/Winchester Ave side) and go to the CAFETERIA at 8:45 a.m. and meet Ms. McGonigle.
