Welcome to Pre-K! This is such an exciting time in your child's life! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's life this y ear! We are going to have so much fun, and you will be amazed at how much and how quickly your child will learn this year!Just a few notes before bringing your child:Drop off and Pick up Procedures: NEW Pre-K Schedule: 7:55 a.m.-2:00 p.m.For Drop off, students can be dropped off by the median outside door #11 and #12 on the Dodson Primary side of the school. When your child comes in the building, they will be going to the Dodson gym until the bell rings (new this year). There is one-way traffic around Kelley Elementary and Dodson Primary. There will be a lane to park if you are dropping off or picking up students (but please do not get out of your vehicle), and there will be a passing lane to the left of the drop-off/pick up lane. So, there will be 2 lanes of traffic, but going in the same direction. This should make traffic flow easily. Of course, we encourage you to walk your child in until they are comfortable coming in on their own. If you choose to do this during the first couple weeks of school, you must park in the lot over by 6th street. After you park, then walk your child in door #11 by the bus loop.For dismissal, Pre-K will dismiss at 2:00 p.m. If your child is to be picked up from school by someone other than yourself or another person that normally picks up your child, please send me a note in your child's folder, call me, or send me an e-mail to explain the situation. We will walk your child out our door at dismissal time to meet you in your car. Please, please stay in your vehicle when you come to pick up your child. This helps the flow of traffic tremendously! We will walk your child to you! Dismissal for all of Pre-K will be in the bus loop. There will be 3 stops for cars to pull up to in the bus loop. We will send your child to the stop according to the order of the cars picking up students. So, it may or may not be me that puts your child in the car! :-) If there is bad weather, we will wait inside and bring them out to the bus loop one at a time outside door #11.
