Safety First Sign

Mrs. Peragallo, Washington Elementary Principal has prepared a document showing the doors and grade levels that should use them for Arrival and Dismissal.  Please click HERE to view.

To insure that your children get to their home rooms on time and safely we are insisting on your cooperation during the morning drop off in the parking lot areas. We ask that if you are the first car in line you pull forward as far as possible so that others have room behind you. We can get everyone into school on time if everyone follows the tips below.

  • Insure that your children have their backpacks with them as they exit the car so that you do not need to leave your vehicle.
  • The Elementary and Annex entrance doors are manned by a staff member to insure your child's safety into the school - Please "Kiss and Drop Off". DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR VEHICLE AND DO NOT BLOCK TRAFFIC WAITING FOR YOUR CHILD TO GET TO THEIR ASSIGNED ARRIVAL AREA. We'll make sure they get to the door. IF YOU MUST WALK YOUR CHILD TO THE DOOR YOU NEED TO PARK ON KATHERINE STREET. YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO LEAVE YOUR CAR IN THE DROP OFF ZONE.
  • DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CHILDREN TO EXIT THE VEHICLE IN ANY AREA OF THE PARKING LOT OTHER THAN THE DROP OFF AREAS INDICATED ON THE PHOTO BELOW. However if there is a staff member present in the restricted area you may allow your child to exit.
  • The first bell rings at 8:15am...do not wait to drop off your children until 8:20, especially in inclement weather.
  • Students are tardy at 8:25am and will not be admitted through the Elementary Door.

Your assistance in this matter will help us to get your children  to class on time and safely!
