Two and a half weeks in and we are off to a great start. As we begin to settle in to the year ahead, I thought it a good time to highlight a few items that will help our arrival and dismissal run safely and smoothly.
Hunnewell is a busy place at arrival and dismissal. Please drive with extra caution!
Reminders for the “LIVE” drop-off line:
Pull as far forward as you can and make sure the children are ready to exit with backpacks in lap or nearby.
The children should exit on the curb side.
The driver should remain in the car.
After you drop the child/ren, please move out of the drop-off line. We can monitor the child’s arrival into the building.
Please do not pull around cars, unless you are waved forward.
Reminders for bikes and scooters:
Bikes and scooters must be walked on school property.
As the Brook Path is not ideal for scooters anymore with the new gravel path, I have noticed more scooters on the sidewalks. Please remind your child to be mindful of pedestrians.
Reminders for Dismissal:
Please send changes in dismissal in the morning! If you need to make a change later in the day, you can email Amy and the classroom teacher before 2:45. Teachers are rarely on email during the day, so cc’ing Amy ensures the child will get the change in dismissal. After 2:45, CALL Amy. She is usually out notifying students of changes after 2:45, so you may need to call back. If you leave a message, it will not be heard in time for the child to receive the message.
Fourth and fifth graders can only pick-up second and third graders.
One final note, the school day begins at 8:30. Please make sure to have your child ready to begin the day with their class.
