The safety of your child is a top priority for the staff of Evergreen School. We, the staff at Evergreen School, urge you to make safety of your child and other children a top priority as well. Please do not drop your child off at school prior to 8:15am. Student supervision does not begin until 8:15am. Work and personal time commitments are important, but more important is the safety of your child.
When crossing a street, children as well as adults need to use the crosswalks. Although it may not be the most convenient or the fastest way to get to and from campus, it is the safest way to travel.
When driving, make sure you yield the right of way to pedestrians and obey all the rules of the road and signs including the “No Stopping Anytime” signs posted around the perimeter of the campus.
There are a lot of students arriving to school in a relatively short window of time. If it is necessary for you to drive your child to school in the morning, instead of walking, try your very best to pull up as far as you can in the drop off line. Your child does not need to be dropped off in front of the entrance gate. They can walk a short distance so we can accommodate more cars that are dropping off. Before pulling away, make sure the car door is closed.
If you are walking to school, the parking lot should not be used as a short cut to get to campus. This causes back up for the parents driving students to school to drop off. Please use the sidewalks to enter and leave campus when walking.
Arriving on time is an important life skill we would like to instill in each of the students. Allowing your child and yourself enough travel time will help learning this very important life skill. Make adjustments in your morning routine to guarantee a safe and relaxed arrival at school. Your child is expected to be in their classroom line or in their classroom seat at 8:30am sharp, and not running to “beat the bell.”
By working together and making the safety of our Evergreen students a top priority, we can ensure our students get to and from school in a safe manner without incident. The staff of Evergreen School appreciates your support.
