    Arrival - Dismissal

    Morning Drop Off Procedure

    In compliance with Rutherford Police Department, Parents/Guardians must drive into the parking lot via Home Avenue and use the Home Avenue entrance to the building. This is the only entrance for drop off. Cars must remain in a single lane. Cars are NOT permitted to pass the line of cars nor are they permitted to park in the parking spaces in the main parking area.  Students must ONLY exit vehicles while the parent/guardian’s vehicle is situated within the designated area.  Our Safety Patrol will help escort students into the building. Parents/guardians who wish to walk their children to the building must park on the street.

    Students arriving before 8:00a.m.will be directed to the Before Care Program. No student will be allowed in the classroom prior to 8:00a.m.
