RCES Handbook

 Morning and Afternoon Procedures:

Children may arrive at school between 8:00-8:20. A reminder to parents who drive their children to school: only use designated drop zone area to let your child out of the car. We have adults present to safely watch them cross.

Any child arriving after 8:20 needs a tardy slip from the front office.

Parents who prefer to walk their child to the building must park and come in through the main entrance. Children will be escorted to class, as needed, from the lobby area.


In the afternoons, car riders are brought to the front lobby at the final bus call, around 3:30. If you pick your child up, you must park and come into the lobby to sign your child out. Children will be brought to you at 3:30. Parents will be asked to wait in our new foyer area.

We ask that parents plan to wait until the 3:30 pick up time, as we want to protect our instructional time at the end of the day.

Any changes in afternoon pick up or bus transportation need to be sent in by note the morning of the change, or called in NO LATER THAN 2:00 to ensure the messages get to the children and teachers.


Thank you for your cooperation!
