First Day of School Procedures


Arrival Procedures

Tuesday, September 5, 2017Many parents prefer to park and walk their child to class on the first day of school. However, our parking lot cannot accommodate our entire school community at one time. For those who wish to walk their child to class, we ask that you follow the staggered arrival schedule below:

*Note: All Kindergarten students attend Day 1. Primary 3- and 4-year old students have a different staggered day arrival. See bottom of this page.

If your last name starts with: A - L please plan to arrive at 8:50 am
M- Z please plan to arrive at 9:00 am

If you do not wish to park and walk your child in, you may proceed through the car line between 8:50 am and 9:00 am. ***New families – refer to Parent Handbook for traffic flow instructions and map.

Parents please note: the first day is a very special bonding time between the teacher and the students. If you do walk your child to the classroom, please do not engage the teacher in conversation. The teachers need to focus their attention on your child at this very special time. Please do not enter the classroom. Montessori is a prepared environment and an opportunity for students to develop independence. Thank you.
