 Dropping Off and Picking Up Your Child

  • If your child needs to be picked up during the day, please try to do so during the nutrition/activity blocks 10:15-10:55 a.m. and 12:25-1:05 p.m. to reduce classroom interruptions.  All children picked up during the school day must be picked up in the office.
  • If you are picking your child up after school, please arrive within 10 minutes of our dismissal time (2:35 p.m.)  Students should meet you outside the front door on Ottawa Street.
  • Your child's safety is important to us. Please call the office before 1:35 p.m. to let us know you are picking your child up or send a note in your child's agenda if you are making alternate pick-up arrangements.
  • The parking lot and bus area is for buses only during arrival (7:55 to 8:20 a.m.) and dismissal (2:35-3:00 p.m.)  Students are to be dropped off in the morning at the alley between WZPS and ADHS and picked up at the front of the school after dismissal.
