Arrival / Dismissal


Morning Arrival


  • We have very few students being dropped off at the main office doors.  Quick tip—drive down the hill; go wide under the basketball hoops to avoid the preschool drop-off lane and drop off at the front!  Great express route for parents on the go!

1. Students may arrive no earlier than 7:45 am and no later than 8:25  am (they should be in their classrooms no later than 8:30 bell)

2. Students will enter one of THREE entrances :

  • East Entrance (Main Office Entrance) (location #1 on map)

  • North Entrance (Entrance  across from Rectory) (location # 2 on map)

  • PreSchool Entrance (West Entrance by garage door) (location # 5 on map)

  • NOTE - NO LONGER able to enter through Recess Doors (#7 on map) 


3. All students in ALL GRADES must wear a gaiter or mask (with lanyard) to enter the building. (STLCO) - please have mask on PRIOR to exiting the car.


4. Students should be ready to exit with their belongings and mask as quickly as possible so as to not cause a bottleneck.

5. Teacher will be present at each of those three entrances with a computer to confirm via a live updated spreadsheet that the student's family has completed the daily wellness form.  NOTE - please complete PRIOR to arriving (by 7:45 if possible).  IF you have forgotten to complete, please pull forward and park so as to not create a bottleneck.  Student's will NOT be allowed into school without a completed form. (Form is on homepage). If a student has symptoms or has had close-contact with a COVID-19 positive/suspsected positive person, they AND their siblings should not enter the school (refer to form and guidelines at for more info).

6. Staff members will monitor each of the THREE entrances to encourage physical distancing, to assist younger students with door and assist students to their classrooms. (Students in grades PreK-2 may be walked to their classroom by a parent (parent must wear mask) the first three days of school.

7. Students will proceed directly to their homerooms. They will not have before care in the cafeteria.

8. If arriving after 8:30 (sharp), please enter through EAST entrance (office entrance) and report  directly to office.


Afternoon Dismissal​

Most Recent Note:

 Be sure to park AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE to the car in front of you.  Cars are going out on Clayton Road and this can be avoided. We know everywhere is saying 6' apart, but let's make sure that's NOT the case between our cars! 

  1. Please arrive no later than 2:55  (dismissal begins at 3pm no longer 3:10)

  2. The fast lane is discontinued. The white gate will be down each day from 8:35 until cars are dismissed. No cars should be driving through the parking lot or back of school. The school grounds will be used more thoroughly for outside classrooms and breaks.

  3. Parents will continue to park in lanes in the large parking lot same as prior years. (new parents - click here for more info:)

  4. Gathering of parents is discouraged.

  5. Parents should exit their car only at the designated times of their children's release. Parents should wear masks when outside of their car.

  6. Staff members will remain with students and encourage students to go directly to their cars.

  7. Students that are walking home will meet the designated staff member at the front of the school and be escorted to the sidewalk off the property.

  8. With additional families and no after school activities like we normally have, the pick up lines are at a max!

  9. We are going to try to keep FIVE lanes as LONG as possible and NOT MERGE down as early as we usually do.

  10. If you are one fo the earlier ones parking, be sure to curve in FRONT (school side) of the dumpster so that we can have four lanes up until it has to merge to fewer lanes up near the church.

  11. Please REMAIN PARKED until the lead parking teacher starts letting cars exit at the beginning of the line.

  12. Please make sure you are wearing a MASKwhen you are outside of your car.
