Arrival and Dismissal

ARRIVAL/DISMISSAL

8:40AM is the earliest students should arrive at school. Please do not drop off students before this time as there is no supervision available.

Students will enter the building at 8:40am and proceed directly to their classroom. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT AS PER SCITUATE TOWN BYLAWS AND THE SPS HANDBOOK, DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON PUBLIC SCHOOL GROUNDS.

As posted, NO cars are allowed in the front driveway of the school during arrival and dismissal time.

For the safety of our children, the circular drive is not a pickup or drop off area. Buses need this area to load/unload students. Under no circumstances should any car pass a bus in this area.


If driving your child to school, please use the north parking area (gym) entrance to the left of the building.

There will be staff to assist children out of vehicles and onto the sidewalk.

Our crossing guards will assist students as they walk or ride their bicycles to school. Drivers need to be on alert and especially cautious as they approach the school's drop-off area. Please keep the traffic flow moving.

Adults picking up students are asked to wait at the end posts of the canopy on the grassy areas thus clearing the walkway for students.

Students riding the bus are not permitted to walk home without prior parent permission.

Remember that pedestrians and bike-riders ALWAYS have the right of way. Students riding bicycles and skateboards are reminded to refrain from using them until the reach the end of the sidewalks

If your child cannot find you at dismissal, they must come to the school office. 

If your child already walks with a neighborhood group it may not be necessary for you to meet them on campus.

EARLY DISMISSAL - If your child will be dismissed prior to the end of the school day, you are asked to send a note to school with your child advising the teacher of the change in routine. To avoid classroom disruption, we ask that make arrangements prior to the start of our school day. We understand family emergencies can occur and necessitate calling the office to make a change of plans in your child's transportation. To dismiss your child, please ring the bell and announce your name and the name of your child(ren). We will dismiss the child(ren) to you at the front door.
