Morning Drop off procedures:

  • Early Bird Class students may be dropped off in the front from 7:20 am – 7:30 am.
  • Buses will unload in the front between 8:00 -8:30 am
  • All other students should use the back loop for drop off. The gym will be open for all students starting at 7:30 am.

Afternoon Pick Up:

  • The front pickup will be for carpoolers/multiple children pickup and high school students.
  • At this link, you will find a map for pick up in the afternoon. Please note the no parking areas and the one way flow.
  • Parents may park in the second or third lane areas to wait for students.
  • Only buses will pick up from the front lane closest to the building.
  • All others will need to pick up in the back loop.
  • In the back, cars arriving early should double stack up to the designated spot (see map).
  • Please only pick up students in the lane closest to the building. The inner lane will be for exiting cars.

⇒ Check Out Procedures

Please allow some extra time (about 10 extra minutes) for us to find your student and for them to get out of class, go to their lockers and get to the front office. If you know you are going to get them early, it is helpful to send in a note in the morning and we can have their attendance card ready. We cannot call them out of class until you arrive at school, but this can speed up the process.

If you are checking out your student towards the end of the school day, please do so before 3:20 pm to avoid end of school day dismissal traffic.

 New parent / family FAQs (includes carpool interest sign ups / lists)

⇒ Parents – be sure to sign up for our e-newsletter, which is the primary way we communicate with our families. Old issues can be reviewed here on our website.

⇒ Recycling Program: This year we will be partnering with SMART Recycling, a local food waste hauling company, to send our food waste to the Bees Ferry Compost Facility instead of putting it in a landfill. Students will be instructed to separate their lunch waste into three different sorting containers: landfill items, recyclable items, and food waste only items including all food scraps, napkins, and brown paper lunch bags. Our goal is to avoid contamination, so this will be an ongoing education effort at PSA to ensure students understand the importance of sorting correctly. Whenever possible, parents are requested to send lunch items in reusable containers to reduce and avoid plastic wrappers and sandwich baggies. Thank you for supporting our sustainability initiative!

⇒ Requesting Records:  When you are requesting your child’s school records, please do so by completing and submitting a Transcript Request Form (available from the front office) and allow a minimum of 24 hours for the school office to prepare the records for you. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
