Pick Up & Drop Off

Student pick up and drop off at Mary E. Dardess Elementary School is as follows:

Morning Drop-Off:

Please drop off students at the front door. There are cones on both the inner and outer lanes –  when it is your turn, please pull up to the cone furthest ahead in your lane and wait for staff to ask you to let your student(s) out. Please do not exit your car.

Walkers should arrive at MED after 7:45 am as there will be no supervision to ensure social distancing outside the front door before that time.

Afternoon Pick-Up:

The pick-up location is the entrance near the gym to the left of the main entrance. You must park in a parking spot as the inner lane will be blocked off. Please arrive during the time slot designated for your child’s grade and have your ID ready. If you have children in multiple grades we will send both students with the younger child. After showing your ID please wait along the front of the school on the social-distancing markers and we will send your child out to you.

Changes to your child’s dismissal plans must be made by 10:00 am.
