*Morning Drop-Off Procedures*

If you decide to drop off your child/children please be aware our procedures have changed. Drop-off will continue to take place in front of the building at the Main Entrance.

· You must enter the entrance closest to Rt. 559 (Somers Point/Mays Landing Road).

· Upon pulling in you should get in drop-off lane which is next to the curb/sidewalk.

· At 8:45, once duty staff is present, we will begin to unload the cars; approximately 5 at a time.

· As children are exiting your car curbside, your car should be in park.

· Once you are in the drop-off lane you must wait your turn and remain in that lane until your child/children have exited your vehicle and it is safe to proceed forward.

If you need to come into the school during morning drop-off (8:45 am-9:00 am) you must use the entrance closest to Rt. 40, park in the large parking lot and escort your child into the building at the main entrance.

Please be aware parking in the front of the building will be closed during the morning drop-off time and will re-open at approximately 9:10 am.
