The pre-K school day begins at 8:30 am and ends at 2:45 pm. Children who must arrive at school early may report directly to their pre-K classrooms. Children may not be dropped off prior to 7:30 am. Please respect our neighbors by not parking in front of any driveways. If parking on Stokley Street, pull up as close as you can to the brick path, and if the car ahead of you leaves, pull into that spot to avoid parking near Midvale Avenue. Please do not park on or near the bend (corner of Stokley & Coulter). Parents/caregivers may also park on The Oak Road and use the side entrance of the Church of the Good Shepherd. Please be careful as cars and buses can come quickly around the corner at Stokley Street.
The K-5 school day begins at 8:10 am, and students who arrive after this time are marked late. Students who arrive after 8:15 am should sign in at the LS office and should indicate their dismissal plan. It is important that students arrive on time each morning as some grades have Special classes and other grades have morning meetings at 8:10 am. Lower School children who arrive before 8:05 am must go directly to the morning drop-off location (the playground or, in inclement weather, the Activities Room) and check in with the faculty member on duty. To ensure their safety, children may not be dropped off prior to 7:30 am. Lower School students may not visit their classrooms to drop off book bags or coats before 8:05 a.m. When accompanied by a parent, caregivers, or MS/US sibling, Lower School students may visit the cafeteria with a supervising adult before school, as long as they are then escorted by the same person to the morning drop-off location (before 8:05 am) or classroom (after 8:05 am).
