****CHANGE IN TRANSPORTATION****
(Written note to the teacher or call to the office by 1:30)
If your child is normally a bus rider and you need to pick them up at the end of the day, you must send in a note to the teacher. If no note is received, your child will be put on the bus.
If you must make a transportation change after classes are in session for the day, a call must be received by 1:30 pm to the front office at 317-789-2800. CAR SIGNS (Issued within the first 2 weeks of school)
Upon entering the Glenns Valley parking lot, cars will form FIVE lines. The five lines of cars will alternate merging into one line. (see attached map)
We will load five cars at a time along the curb. Drivers will need to pull up in one of the five marked spaces. The children will be called out after all cars have pulled up and have come to a complete stop. Please remain in your car. The children will be allowed to enter the car on the passenger side ONLY not the driver. Once all five cars have been loaded, they will be released and the process will start over. If your child is not present in the car rider hall line when their name is called, you will be asked to pull around and get back in line in order to keep the loading process moving.
Your children need to enter the car/close the door on their own. If it is difficult for them, practice at home. If you need to pull forward to assist with seat belts, PULL UP to the end of the lane. Have your children practice buckling seat belts at home.
2.Please make sure you review the Car Rider Rules with your child(ren).
We are constantly looking after the safety of your children. Please help us keep them safe as well. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Morning Drop-off: 8:50 a.m. to 9:10 a.m.
Doors close at 9:10 – Late arrivals need to go to the front office for tardiness.
Entrance #5 and entrance #6 are to be used during morning drop-off only.
Please keep in mind these rules are for the safety of your children and to expedite the drop-off process so your children will get to class on time. We have many students who are car riders and in order to be safe and get everyone through quickly, we must all cooperate. If this system does not work for your morning or afternoon plans, please make arrangements to have your child ride the bus or consider carpooling.
In an effort to keep the line moving, children need to be ready (papers/books in backpack, coats on, etc…) to exit the car when you pull up and stop. Please realize your child may not get out near a specified door. If the line stops and your vehicle is in the middle, your child still needs to exit the car. We have staff present to direct your child and make sure they enter the building safely. Parents need to remain in the car.
NO VEHICLES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER THE BUS LANE WHEN BUSES ARE PRESENT!
Thank you in advance, Mr Rohl, Principal
