Arrival/Dismissal Procedures for All Families at Old Settlers
The following information is being provided to ensure the safety of all our students, as well as to allow our staff members to perform their before and after school duties without distraction. Please read through the specific guidelines below so that there is equity for all OSE families in regard to arrival and dismissal.
- Any family who does not have a car tag needs to inform their child’s classroom teacher.
- Each day at dismissal, every student is either a walker, bike rider, car rider, school bus/yellow bus rider, day care bus rider, or ESD attendee.
- Family members should not walk up to or park and walk up to the building at any location during the arrival or dismissal time.
- All vehicles must be in the front circle drive or the east side circle drive (by the cafeteria) and pull up as close to the vehicle in front of you as possible. In the front circle drive, the first car in line should pull up even to the fire hydrant.
- At dismissal, all vehicles in both car lines must have a car tag with the assigned number hanging and displayed clearly from the rearview mirror of the vehicle until the child is in the car.
- At any given time, vehicles should not block fire lane access to the back of the school building or be parked anywhere that is designated as a fire lane.
- Bike riders that live in The Sanctuary are encouraged to use the north bike rack (near the kindergarten wing).
- All other bike riders need to use the east bike rack (front/cafeteria side).
- All bike riders and walkers will exit the front door and proceed directly to their route home.
- No one is permitted to wait outside the front entrance.
- If you walk home with your child, you may meet them at either bike rack. Please ensure that any siblings or other children accompanying you remain at the bike rack and are not playing/running around as this creates a safety concern. Once you have met up with your child, please promptly continue on your route home.
- Drivers of any vehicles should never be on a phone or distracted by a hand-held device in a school zone or while on campus per state law.
