*If your student is being bussed somewhere other than your residence (i.e. family member, daycare, etc) transportation needs to be notified prior to the start of school – 509-922-5480.
Student Drop-off: Earliest drop-off time for students is 8:45 a.m. Prior to that time, there is NO ADULT SUPERVISION. Please do not drop students off at the front of the school or on the playground prior to this time. Students can be dropped off at the side of the Playground or at the Front Entry. Please note that parents cannot accompany their students onto the Playground. All adults must check-in at the Front Office.
Parent Pick-up / Walker Station: Please be sure to take it slow. Your patience at the pickup area is greatly appreciated. There are many students that exit this location, so it can take some time to get all students out.
Student Dismissal Locations: For the safety of our students, they will only be released to busses or the walker station. Students cannot be picked up or released at the front office at dismissal time. Also students cannot be picked up from the bussing area. The safety of our students is very important to us, we appreciate your support!
Inclement Weather / Recess Guidelines During Cold Weather:
Please remember that students will play outside at recess throughout the winter. It is important, therefore, that students dress warmly. Clothing appropriate for the weather will ensure that your child is comfortable during the winter months. Students who are feeling uncomfortably cold should talk to one of the playground supervisors about staying inside or coming inside to warm up.
Principals, or a designee, will have the final say when determining if an outside recess will be authorized. The following temperature guidelines will be used:
- When the temperature feels like 20 degrees and above (considering wind chill) - Outside Recess
- When the temperature feels like 16 - 20 degrees (considering wind chill) - Outside Recess with and an Indoor Option for students wishing to remain indoors and for students with inadequate winter clothing.
- When the temperature feels like 10 - 15 degrees (considering wind chill) - Abbreviated Outside Recess 5-10 minutes with and an Indoor Option for students wishing to remain indoors and for students with inadequate winter clothing.
- When the temperature feels like 10 degrees or below (considering wind chill) - Inside Recess.
Rain, wet/slushy snow, strong winds and other adverse conditions may cause us to remain indoors, also.
