    STUDENT ARRIVAL TIME BEGINS AT 8:42 AM 


    By Car: 


    Cars enter the Concord Road Campus and stay to the left.  Drop-off will take place in the clock entrance parking lot starting at 8:42 AM. This is the ONLY drop-off location, as no other areas are permitted during morning arrival.  Prior to 8:42 AM, students must remain in their vehicles as supervision is not available.  Vehicles should line up along the curb in a single line.  The first car must pull all the way around to where the curb first starts at the gate and all other vehicles must pull forward to the greatest extent possible.

    Staff members will be guiding the flow of traffic within the clock entrance parking lot. To ensure the safety of all members of the CRS community, please follow the guidance of the staff outside.

    All cars must remain in the queue and wait until the cars in front of them drop-off.  Cars may not pull around vehicles that are still in line for any reason.

    Parents must remain in their cars.  If, for any reason, a parent plans to step out of the vehicle to support drop-off, s/he must park in a designated parking and escort the child to the main entrance.

     

    • Students should be wearing a mask as they exit their family car. They must exit their car from the right, positioning them safely on the side of the curb.
    • Staff members will be present to support an efficient drop-off process.  Students will open their car door, exit the vehicle and close the door.
    • If your child is unable to dismount the car independently, please park your car in a legal spot and walk your child to the primary entrance.


    All students will walk along the sidewalk and proceed to the following designated entrances:

    • Students in kindergarten and first grade will enter the building through the primary entrance doors and transition to their classrooms.
    • Students in second, third and fourth grade will enter the building through the clock entrance doors and transition to their classrooms.

     

    Cars must remain in line and exit the lot in the order they entered.

    Starting at 8:52 AM, staff members must leave the drop-off area to join students for instruction in classrooms.  Students arriving late will enter through the main entrance.  As of 8:52 AM, parents dropping off students in kindergarten and first grade must park in a designated parking space. Security will call the main office and your child will be escorted to their classroom through the main entrance.

    Please note that the gate to the lot will be closed at 8:50 AM.

    Our buses proceed down the entry drive to the main entrance lot.  Students proceed directly to their classroom.  Staff is stationed throughout the hallways to direct and supervise student arrival to ensure social distancing as students dismount the bus and walk to their classrooms.

     

    Late Arrival Procedures: 


    • All students (K-4) who arrive after 8:55 AM are considered late and must enter through the Main Building and sign in at the security desk. 
    • Only our Main Entrance is accessible to students who are arriving late. 
    • After 8:55 AM, parents dropping off students in kindergarten and first grade must park in a designated parking space, enter through the main entrance and receive a late pass. Your child will then be escorted to their classroom/special by a member of the staff. 
    • Students in grades 2-4 will be given a late pass and proceed directly to their classroom/special, unescorted.

    Our security guard will have a master list of class specials to ensure that your child will join his or her class efficiently.  In all cases, our Health Office is notified of late arrivals and this information will appear on your child’s permanent attendance record and report card.

The exit locations will be in close proximity, which should result in an efficient and timely transition.
