Bright Beginnings Preschool Pick Up and Drop Off Procedures
Please follow the guidelines below when dropping off and picking up your child from preschool. Please share this information with all caregivers so that it is communicated to everyone who might be responsible for transporting your child to and from school. Have your child’s car-rider sign clearly displayed in your front windshield EVERY DAY at pickup. If you or the person picking up your child does not have a car rider sign, proper identification will be requested.
AM DROP OFF:
Please pull into the main drive off of Grafton and stop at the sign that reads Stop Here Until Directed. There will be two lines of cars that form. If you are the first car to pull in, please start the line to the left. A second line will then form immediately to the right of the first line. All vehicles in the line to the left, which is formed first, need to pull up to the preschool door to drop off their child BEFORE any vehicle from the line that is formed to the right. This is to ensure that students are dropped off in the order that they arrived. Please keep in mind that there will be busses that will need to park in front of you and may require additional space for wheelchair access. Classroom aides and teachers will COME TO YOUR CAR to get your child out of the car and walk with your child into the building. Please do not release your child until a staff member has come to your car. We ask that you remain in your car and do not enter the building with your child.
AM Drop Off - The first car in line may pull up to the preschool door no earlier than 8:50 AM. Other cars may follow.
PM Drop Off - You may pull up to the preschool entrance door at or before 12:30 PM. Remaining cars will form a line behind the first vehicle. Once again, two lines will need to be formed beginning at the “Stop Here Until Directed” sign. First, completely form the line to the left, then start the line to the right. All vehicles in the line to the left, which is formed first, need to pull up to the preschool door to drop off their child BEFORE any vehicle from the line that is formed to the right. This is to ensure that students are dropped off in the order that they arrived.
AM and PM PICK UP:
Please form a line beginning at the preschool entrance door. Vehicles may line up at the door at any time. Two lines will likely be formed, near the “Stop Here Until Directed” sign. Please form the line to the left first, then start a new line to the right to ensure children are picked up in the order that their parent/childcare provider arrived. Preschool staff will bring your child out to the vehicle. The person picking up the child shall get out of the vehicle and walk around to take the child from the preschool staff member. The person picking up the child shall then assist the child in the vehicle and buckle the child in their seat. BRIGHT BEGINNINGS STAFF ARE NOT TO BUCKLE CHILDREN IN THEIR SEATS.
WHEN DROPPING OFF AND PICKING UP, ALL VEHICLES MUST EXIT ON MELROSE DRIVE. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO VIEW A MAP.
