George L. Cooke Elementary Drop-off and Pick-up Proceedures

Aug. 30, 2016

School hours are 8:50-3:22 p.m. daily.

Morning Procedures:
Students attending the Healthy Kids morning program are allowed to be signed into the program at 6:30 a.m.

All other students are allowed to enter the school building at 8:50 a.m. The student entrance is at the end of the parking lot through the double doors. The entrance closes at 9:05 a.m.

Parents entering with children and all other visitors must enter the building through the main entrance.
Students are considered late if they arrive at 9:06 a.m. They must then enter the building through the main entrance.

The bus lane has to be left open for arriving buses between 8:50 and 9:15 a.m. There is NO PARKING IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL BUILDING.

Visitors may park in any of the spaces without numbers. Faculty and staff have numbered spaces. Please do not park in any of these numbered spaces.

For safety reasons, parents may not escort their child to the classroom.

End-of-day Procedures:
Parents arriving to pick up a child will be allowed to enter the building at 3:05 p.m. Students are dismissed from their classrooms at this time.

Once you enter the building you will come directly to the multi-purpose room to sign your child out. You will be asked for government issued photo identification EACH DAY you sign your child out. This is a safety precaution to protect all children.

Please try to make doctor appointments for your child after 3:05 p.m. We ask you to partner with us to make sure your child will get the most out of each day. Excessive lateness and picking your child up prior to the end of the school day interrupts the valuable learning of your child.

If you have to take your child out of school early, please send a note to the child’s teacher. Bus changes will not be accepted without a written note.
