Drop Off & Pick Up
ARRIVAL ON CAMPUS
With the exception of the breakfast program, students should not arrive earlier than 8:15 a.m. We do not have supervision on campus prior to 8:30; please do not have your child on campus prior to that time. Students should go directly to their classroom door and wait outside until the teacher arrives. Students who arrive after 8:45 will be considered tardy. The playground is off-limits until first recess.
BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL DROPOFF/PICKUP
Student safety is our highest priority at Badger Mountain Elementary. We have policies and procedures on how to drop students off at the school, and how to pick students up after school. Please make arrangements to drop off or pick up your students at the paved area on Elementary Street in front of the primary playground swings/fence. If your child is in a portable classroom, these same procedures apply. This area has been created to provide a safety zone and to keep students from having to be in an area with car traffic. The side and back parking lot is for staff only.
We also have a drop-off/pick-up area at the front of our campus. If your child is in a portable classroom, please note that you must pick up and drop off at the front of the school. The map on the next page shows the traffic flow procedures. If you choose to use the drop-off and pick-up area in front of the school, please pull to the curb to allow your child to exit and enter your car from the passenger side directly onto the curb. We will not allow children to walk into the driving lane to enter or exit cars on the driver’s side of the car. Thank you for helping us keep all children safe, and teaching your child this procedure. You must stay in your car if you pull up to the curb, as this is a fire lane. As cars exit this lane, please pull forward to allow more cars to access the curb.
If you need to come into the school, or wish to meet your child on campus, please drive through the drop-off and pick-up lane on the left hand side, pull into our parking lot, park, and proceed to escort your child onto the school grounds using the walkway provided. If your child is late to school, or if you are picking them up early, parents need to come into the office to either sign them in or sign them out. When walking your child to your car, please use the walkway provided, with a crossing guard. This is a safety issue. We have taught ALL students to cross with our safety personnel.
