Welcome to Yellow Springs Elementary School



Back to School Letter

***Important Change***

Morning Car Rider Arrival Process

When you enter the property, you will round the first circle and head towards the back of the school, towards the gymnasium. Car Riders will now exit cars at the sidewalk near the cafeteria.

  Do not enter the original front loop which is now designated for buses.  Staff will be on duty to help exit your child from the car.

Afternoon Car Rider Dismissal

Parents picking up their children, as car riders, will now have the convenience of remaining in their cars as the children are brought to them.  Instead of parking and coming in the building, cars will proceed to the back of the school towards the gymnasium and make a big loop.  There will be signs and staff members to direct you.

The process will go like this: The school will have several staff members on duty with walkie-talkies.  One staff member will go car by car and ask for the child(ren)s name(s).  The staff member will radio into the gym and the students will be escorted outside.  When given the signal by the staff member on duty, the students will proceed to the car.  The process will continue in this manner.  The process will move quickly as you see our plan for loading ten plus cars at a time.
