Morning Drop-off

  • Please do not get to Silvia School until 7:30am. We do not open doors until 7:40am. 

  • Please do NOT approach the entrance door or get out of your cars until invited by a staff member. We can NOT have people congregating around the entrance door prior to 7:40.

  • If you are waiting in the drop-off line within the back parking lot, please pull to one side so staff entering the lot can drive by you and park. 

  • Please pull all the way up to the stop sign when dropping students in front of Silvia School. 

  • Please stay in the car and have students ready to exit.

  • Please have students ready to exit the car independently when they are getting dropped off. If you would like to get out of the car, please park in one of the parking spots in the main parking lot to do so. This will help significantly with traffic and support all our students with getting to school on time.

  • Preschool pick up and drop-off is located at the left side of the building. (Please refrain from having lengthy conversations with your child’s teacher during arrival and dismissal. If necessary, schedule a time to meet or email the teacher).

 

Pick Up Notes:

For the 2020-2021 school year, the following will serve as Silvia’s pick-up locations at dismissal time:

 

  • Kindergarten, Grade 1 and siblings of K/1st graders will be dismissed out of the cafeteria

  • Grade 2 and Grade 3 will be dismissed out of the right front doors

  • Grade 4 and Grade 5 will be dismissed out of the main entrance/left front doors

  • Preschool pick-up is located at both sets of doors located at the front of the school building. (Please refrain from having lengthy conversations with your child’s teacher during arrival and dismissal. If necessary, schedule a time to meet or email the teacher).

  • Please do not arrive at Silvia early during dismissal time. Students in parent patrol are dismissed AFTER bus dismissal. 

  • Due to safety reasons, parents/guardians will not be allowed into the building 30 minutes prior to school dismissal time. This means, students will NOT be released to parents/guardians during the last half hour of the school day.  The ONLY exception is if a student is sick and is being dismissed by the school nurse.
