Arrival and Dismissal Procedures


PARENT DROP OFF AND PICK UP PROCEDURE Students who are brought to school by their parents should not be  dropped off before 8:30 a.m. There is no supervision before that time. Please be aware that the procedure has changed due to COVID-19. 

Morning Drop Off: (between 8:30 - 8:55 a.m.)  

  • Parent traffic will flow single file to the playground entrance.  
  • CRES staff members will greet cars that need to unload. 
  • Parents should remain in the vehicle. 
  • CRES staff will NOT be able to lean in to help unbuckle students.
  • Students need to have their mask on prior to exiting the car. 
  • Students will enter through the playground gates. 
  • Students head directly to their homeroom using the playground doors.  
  • Breakfast will be available in the lobby for those who ordered it and should be eaten in the homeroom. 

Morning Walk-in: (between 8:30 - 8:55 a.m.)  

  • Parents may park and walk their child to the playground gates.  
  •  A CRES staff member will greet them.  
  • To ensure a safe social distancing for all, only CRES students and staff will be allowed on the playground. 

Busses will be met by CRES staff members at the Main Entrance. Students in Grades 2 – 4 will enter the building through the  Main Entrance doors and head directly to their homerooms. Kindergartners, Grade 1 and Multiage students will enter through  the old main entrance and head directly to their homerooms. 

After 8:55 a.m., all arriving students must enter the building through the Main Entrance doors and head straight to homeroom.  School begins at 9:00 a.m.  

Parent/Guardian Pick-up will take place at the two playground gates abutting the parking lot. Additionally, Kindergarten and  Multiage classrooms that abut the parking lot will dismiss directly from the classroom to a parent/guardian on the sidewalk. This  year parents/guardians must wait on the outside of the playground. 

Pickup follows a staggered schedule by grade:  

o 3:00 -3:10 - Kindergarten/Multiage (Early Release Wednesday 12:30)

o 3:10 - 3:20 - First/Second (Early Release Wednesday 12:40)  

o 3:20 - 3:30 - Third/Fourth (Early Release Wednesday 12:50)

Students will wait under large tents on the playground, one for last names A-K and the other L-Z (except for K and Multiage classes that abut the parking lot).  

Students will be matched with their parent/guardian at the gate by a CRES staff member.  

All children in the same family will be dismissed following the scheduled time for the youngest student.  

Bus riders will be released from classrooms as busses arrive and travel through grade level hallways to an exit door.  Students will access the busses using various exits from the building.  

YMCA After Care students will be released from classrooms at 3:20 and travel to the cafeteria. They will move to the  playground once CRES has dismissed all students.
