Dear Harrison Park Families,
We are looking forward to the upcoming school year! ! I am writing to send a
friendly reminder about our morning drop off and afternoon dismissal procedures.
Please remember that these procedures are put in place for our students’ safety.
Staff members and parent volunteers are present to ensure student safety and to
assist with a smooth drop off/arrival process. Please note that staff will
immediately address any issue which jeopardizes our students’ safety. If you have
any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please feel free to contact me at the
school. We thank you in advance for your continued support and patience.
●Students may start arriving at the school at 8:30 a.m. and wait in the APR
until 8:45 a.m. At that time, all students are permitted to proceed to their
homerooms. After 9:00 a.m., parents and guardians will need to walk their
child into the school to sign in at the main office.
●All cars should enter the back/recess parking lot and form a single file line.
●As you approach the drop off area, please have your child walk to the
sidewalk and proceed to the front entrance.
●Once students are safely on the sidewalk, cars should exit to the left. Please
proceed cautiously as bus traffic is also arriving at the school.
●Once all buses have arrived, staff will signal that cars may enter the front
drop off area near the main doors.
●The drop off areas are no passing zones . Please remain patient as students
are exiting their cars from both the driver and passenger side doors.
●If you child needs extra time, please feel free to pull into a visitor parking
space. If assistance is needed, please notify a staff member on duty.
●Please review procedures with grandparents, aunts, uncles, or anyone else
who may be dropping off your child.
●All parties need to follow outlined procedures and staff directions to ensure
the safe daily operations of the school.
●PM kindergarten parents: Stay with your child until their teacher picks them
up at 12:45p.m. Prior to 12:45, students who are running, shouting, and
roughhousing are a distraction to our first grade classrooms.
●Early dismissals are for students who need to leave prior to parent pickup.
If you do not want your child to dismiss in parent pickup, please write a
note stating you would like an early dismissal at (time) . Please pick your
child up prior to 3:00 p.m. for an early dismissal.
