Elementary Supply Lists for 2012-1013
Parking Lot Safety - In order to keep our students who are dropped off and/or picked up at school safer, we are going to designate a “drop-off/pick-up zone”. The drop-off/pick-up zone will be between the two cross walks in front of the school building. Students who are being dropped off will need to exit the car once you are in this zone in order to keep traffic flowing in the morning. Students being picked up after school will need to wait on the sidewalk in the pick-up zone until their ride approaches the curb in this zone. Students will not be allowed to walk to cars waiting in line outside the pick-up zone or to cars in the “second lane”.
Parents are still welcome to park in the lot and come in to the school to pick up their children.
Look for the cones on the sidewalk marking the drop-off / pick-up zone. Please be patient as we try to make our students safer. Thank you for your cooperation!
Arrival /Dismissal Time - Buses will be arriving at 8:05 AM to drop off the elementary students. Students who walk or are dropped off are asked to arrive between 8:00 AM - 8:15 AM. There will be no supervision of children prior to 8:00 AM. The tardy bell will still ring at 8:20 AM as in the past. Dismissal time will be 3:05 PM. Students who walk or are picked up will be dismissed at around 3:00 PM.
Breakfast Program - At Archbold Elementary breakfast will be served from 8:00-8:25 AM in the elementary cafeteria. Students who are dropped off or walk may report to the cafeteria at 8:00 AM for breakfast. Students who ride a bus will need to report to their classrooms to sign in and then report to the cafeteria for breakfast. The cost of breakfast is $1.50.
