If you are dropping off your child to school in the mornings, the drop off area is at the back of the school on West School Lane. From 8:35 to 9:00 am staff members are at the back doors to let students in the building. Please do not drop off your child in the bus lane in the front of school during these times.
Students who arrive to school after 9:00 will need to brought into the school office, signed in by an adult and a tardy card will be issued before going down to their classroom.
A Drop Off & Go desk for items that your child may have “forgot", i.e., lunches, sneakers, homework, etc. is located inside the front door of the school. You may leave these items on the desk. The school secretaries check this table frequently all day and make sure these items get to your child in a timely manner.
Please remember to use the buzzer at the office door when entering the school office. Everyone must sign in on the visitor log and take a "visitor pass" if you are entering the school to volunteer, see the nurse, etc.
We have 3 or 4 "visitor" parking spots in the front of the school if you are quickly coming to school to drop something off, pick up your child early, dropping off your late child, etc. If you plan to be at the school longer than 15 minutes please use the parking lot in the back of the school.
Please remember to write a note for your child if he/she is going home a different way than they usually do. If they are going home with a friend, BOTH parents must write a note for this. If your child will be picked up early from school a note to the teacher will expedite the pickup when you arrive. The teacher will have your child packed up and ready to go! A note pad for this purpose was placed in the first day Welcome Packets! More notepads are available in the school office.
Our absentee phone line should be used to report when your child will not be in school that day. Makeup homework requests can be made if they will be out more than a day. The number is 215-321-2420 and press 1. These messages are checked every day between 9:30 - 10:00 am.
