Arrival and Dismissal

Utilizing the hybrid model, our school hours for 2020-2021 are 8:55 a.m. to 11:25am for K-5 students in Cohort A, and 12:55 to 3:25 for K-5 students in Cohort B.

Early Childhood Center hours are 9:10-11:40 for AM session, 12:25-2:55 for PM session. At this time there is no full day session.

NO cars are allowed in the front driveway of the school.

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.


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.


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.

If you are headed north on Tilden Road (toward Egypt Beach), meet at the grassy area to the front left of the school.

  • AS PER SCITUATE POLICE DEPARTMENT, THERE IS NO PARKING ON EITHER SIDE OF TILDEN ROAD, ESPECIALLY AT THE CROSSWALK AREAS.
  • At drop off/pick up in the north parking lot, please patiently follow the queue of cars and adhere to the traffic pattern.
  • If you do not access the north parking lot for drop off/pick up but rather a side street, please adhere to the traffic rule of parking on only one side of the street facing the correct way.
  • Traffic patterns for Edith Holmes Drive area - Clover Lane is a heavily used side street and we have a large walker population that enter that area. Park only on the east side as parking on the west side is prohibited.
  • Turns in driveways are prohibited as are three-point turns because they are a safety issue.

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.
