Cars cannot park or idle in the Fire Lane.DISMISSALSEarly Dismissals: We have seen an increase in early dismissals. Every time that we call into a classroom, we are interrupting the learning in that classroom. We understand that there are times that require a child to be dismissed early. Please try to avoid this, if possible, so that we can continue to provide uninterrupted instruction for our students.
Dismissal Change: It is vitally important that you send in a note if you are changing the way in which your child gets home. Occasionally, children forget that you are picking them up and get onto the bus. In order for us to expedite the retrieval of your child from the bus, please provide the staff member assisting you with the name of your child’s bus.WALKERS & BIKE RIDERSStudents who are walking or riding to school must wait in the main foyer until all of the buses have left the area. If your son or daughter is riding a bike, please be sure he or she wears a helmet.VISITORSWe require all visitors to identify themselves and the purpose of their visit by pressing our school buzzer, and then stopping at the main office to sign in and receive a visitor pass. All visitors must present a form of I.D. For safety reasons, this has become our standard procedure.FORGOTTEN ITEM DROP-OFFIn order to minimize disruptions throughout the day, we call students to the main office at 10:58 a.m. and at the end of the day, for items that have been dropped off.DRIVING DIRECTIONSSchool address: 730 Osterville-West Barnstable Road, Marstons Mills, MA 02648
