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 7:30 a.m. There is no supervision before that time.

Morning Drop Off: (between 7:30 - 7:55 a.m.)

      Parent vehicle traffic will flow single file to the flagpole crosswalk.

      CRES staff members will greet cars that need to unload.

      Parents should remain in the vehicle.

      Students will enter through the playground gate.

      Students dropped off between 7:30 and 7:40 a.m. will start the day outside with staff and enter the school at approximately 7:40 a.m., when the first bus arrives. *

      Students may choose to enter the lobby after 7:30 to eat breakfast and/or sit on the bench outside the main office.


Morning Walk-in: (between 7:30 - 7:55 a.m.)

      Parents will park and walk their child to the playground gates via the sidewalk to avoid crossing traffic. 

      A CRES staff member will greet students at the playground gate.

      Only CRES students and staff will be allowed on the playground.

After 7:55 a.m., all arriving students must enter the building through the Main Entrance doors. School begins at 8:00 a.m.

Parent/Guardian Pick Up

Pick up will take place at the two playground gates abutting the parking lot. Additionally, Pre-K, Kindergarten and Multiage classrooms that abut the parking lot will dismiss directly from the classroom to a parent/guardian on the sidewalk.

      Parents/Guardians will wait on the outside of the playground.

      Pick up follows a staggered schedule by grade:

o   2:20 Pre-K, Kindergarten, First, Multiage

o   2:30 Second, Third, Fourth

      Students will wait at the gates on the playground, one for last names A-K and the other L-Z (except for Pre-K, 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.

      Parents are encouraged to follow sidewalks to avoid crossing traffic whenever possible.

* Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather in the morning. If there is inclement weather (rain, snow, extreme cold), students will instead get some exercise walking around the gym in the lower level hallways. When the first bus arrives, all students will enter the lobby, get breakfast if they need it, and report to their classrooms.
