Safety Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Safety Arrivals & Dismissals Procedures

We, at Our Lady of Lourdes School, are concerned for student safety and want to do all that we can to ensure a safe environment. Please review this policy.
Arrival
- Drop off time begins at 7:50 a.m. That is when there is a teacher on duty. The bell rings at 8:00am.  All children should be at school by then, even for inclement weather. Please make sure that your children get to school  on time.
- If you arrive after all classes have entered the building, you are considered late!  Students not entering their classrooms with their classes must get a late pass. Please make every effort to be on time. It is very disruptive to your class to come in late.  
- If parents need to speak to the teachers, please make an appointment rather than engage them in conversation before or after school. 
- If driving to school, please do not drop off your child/children in the areas of the bus zone. 
- Parents must stay on the sidewalk by the priests' residence.   Please do not stand next to the children's class lines in the mornings. 
 
Dismissal:
Our faculty dismisses students to parents, guardians, or approved persons.
 We ask that grades N - 8 take the following measures:
- The students should not be on the lawn of the rectory/priests' residence.
- The students should not be on the lawn premises closest to the school.
- The students should not be on school grounds across from the school.
- The students should not be near the yellow-chained area. This is strictly a parking area.
- The students should not be climbing, running, or sliding on any apparatus such as: cellar basement doors, school steps or vehicle garage waiting for class to start.
- Faculty supervision is available until all students are released safely in parent/guardian care.
Note: Exemption: Students with bicycles.

Do not bring dogs to dismissal.  This is a major safety hazard.  Please ensure that those  persons permitted to pick up your children, e.g. babysitters, strictly adhere to this regulation.

*These procedures are designed to ensure the well-being of all students during the school year. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support.
 
A SPECIAL NOTE: If a student is to be picked up by someone other than one of the parents, the faculty/office must receive a written request from the parent to that effect. It is also necessary for the school to have written permission to release a student to a non-custodial parent/guardian.
