Drop Off and Dismissal
Our Drop Off and Dismissal process remains the same as last year. Students in Grades K-8 may be dropped off as early as 7:30am and dismissal will be directly from your child/ren’s classrooms when called. Please enter the parking lot from 28th Ave. SW-across from the church and follow the painted arrows toward the drop off line located in front of the gym. Officer Tony and a number of school personnel will be outside to assist.
PK3 and PK4 drop off and dismissal will continue outside of the respective classrooms on 2730 53rd Terrace SW and students may be dropped off as early as 7:30am.
Kindergarten Parents: You may walk your child to their classroom during the first week of school. Please park your car along the Parish Center side and walk your child in through the gates any time after 7:40am.
Prayers will continue each day in the gym. At this time, we invite parents to join us for prayers and announcements on MONDAYS. Should you choose to take part in our school prayers, you must drop off your child first before parking and entering the gym. This ensures that only adults are walking through the busy parking lot.
