Currie Elementary School Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures


DAILY DROP-OFF PROCEDURES:  Families who choose to drop children off at school are asked to do so between 8:45-9:15.  Students arriving to their classroom after 9:15 will be considered tardy to school.  The drop off location for students not riding a Mathews bus will be at the sidewalk at the south-most part of the parking lot.  This is different from the drop off location and procedure in years past. A staff member will be waiting at the end of the walk to meet your child.  This is the door nearest the shed at the rear of the building.  Parents will exit the parking lot by following the orange cones.  You will notice buses parked near the playground and you will exit near the center of the parking lot.  Staff cars will be parked in the back row.   

Students in grades 1 and 2 wishing to receive a school breakfast will enter the building and pick up a grab and go breakfast and proceed to their homeroom.  Kindergarten students will proceed to the multipurpose room.  

While we are asking all families to complete temperature checks prior to leaving for school in the morning, we will also be conducting temperature checks of all students and staff upon arrival.

If your child arrives late, please go to the front door nearest the office and ring the bell.  Someone will meet you at the door.

DAILY PICK-UP PROCEDURES: Due to the large number of families who are not using the Mathews transportation to start the year, the pick-up procedures in the building have changed.  

All cars must display the numbered parking tag which you will receive in the parking lot on your first day of pick-up.  Please hang this on your rearview mirror.  

Parents of students in grades K-2, must park in the first row of the parking lot closest to the building. Parents must fill in the first row facing the building from right to left (North to South). Once the row is full, begin the second row in the same format.  Parents will stand by the driver’s side door and children will meet you at the cars.  Students will be delivered to their vehicles at this time. Please buckle your child in and remain parked until the signal has been given to dismiss from the parking lot.   Please leave in a straight line in the order you are parked, beginning with the first car parked at  the north end of the  lot.     Staff will be present to assist with this procedure in this loading area.  

BUS RIDERS WHO NEED PICKED UP BY THE FAMILY AT SCHOOL:  Families who use Mathews transportation, but will pick children up on an as needed basis will always park in the same way described above.   In order to arrange this pick-up, families must call the school prior to 11:00 AM or send a note with your child on the day of the requested pick-up.  Please understand, we are not able to allow families into the building to sign children out.  As long as we have a note or phone call prior to 11:00 AM, we will deliver them to your parked car at 2:50.
