Welcome back! As many of you know, our building is still under construction, which presents some challenges where drop off and pick up are concerned. We will need your support at drop off and pick up to keep the chaos to a safe minimum. Below, you will find drop off and pick up information specific to each level. In addition to these norms, we ask that all family members dropping off or picking up students at the Open School adhere to the following guidelines: 

  • Our playground is not open for free play during drop off or pick up times (not even if parents/guardians are supervising). 

  • Please do not double park along 10th Ave in front of the school.

  • Please do not park across the street from the school and have kids run across the street to meet you. 

  • Please do not make u-turns in front of the school. 

  • If you intend to get out of your car for more than 10 minutes during drop off or pick up, please park in one of our parking lots rather than taking up a space in front of the school. 

  • Only those picking up or dropping off preschoolers or kindergarteners are eligible to park on the bus loop off of 12th Ave.

  • Students having breakfast at school in the cafeteria, can enter through the main entrance starting at 8:00 AM.

  • Students arriving after 8:40 need to be signed in at the front office.
