Please bear with us as we start the school year. Our first priority must be the safety of our Grayhawk students and families. Thank you for helping us keep your children safe!

Important Arrival/Dismissal Reminders:

Procedures

  • Morning drop off will begin at 8:40 AM and ALL gates will be open at that time.

  • Students will go directly into their grade level door straight to their classrooms.

  • When dropping off your student(s), use the back bus lane (opposite of how we normally do this).

  • Because there is no morning recess, we are utilizing the back of the building to make it easier for students to go directly to their grade level door and classroom. Enter from 76th St. and exit onto Grayhawk Dr.

  • All families are encouraged to use this procedure. There will be staff in the bus lane to assist students with getting out of their car and making sure they know where to go for class.

  • Kindergarten Parents:

    • If you would like to park and walk your child to their kindergarten door, please use the side parking lot and walk across the front of the building. Remember to practice safe social distancing and wear a mask when walking your child to the door.
  • Pre-K Parents:

    • You may park in the front bus lane at 9:00AM and walk your child to the kindergarten door. Remember to practice safe social distancing and wear a mask when walking your child to the door.
  • Bus riders will be taken to the cafeteria upon arrival and will be escorted to the classroom at 8:40AM.

  • Gates will close promptly at 9:00 AM and attendance will be taken at that time.

  • The academic day begins at 9:00 AM.

Students who ride a bike to school may use the bike rack located on the Northwest corner of the school.  Also use designated crosswalks to get across streets. Walk your bike when using the crosswalk.

  • Students with siblings should determine a meeting spot to go home together.

Car Pick-Up for K Through 6th Grade

For afternoon dismissal the car pick-up drive-thru (morning bus lane) will be located behind the school. Parents will enter the flow from 76th St and exit onto Grayhawk Drive. All students being picked up by car will be located in the back of the school. We will be using the “Bus lane” for parent pick-up for afternoon dismissal.

  1. Please make sure to have your student’s first and last name written in large clear letter on a sheet of paper/cardstock. (Cardstock provided at Meet the Teacher event as well as parent pick-up line of first day of school.)
  2. Place the name on the passenger side dashboard or on our car’s visor.
  3. As you pull forward your student(s) will be called aloud by the campus assistants.
  4. Students should not approach the car until it comes to a stop.
  5. Do not exit the car to assist students. Campus assistants will be loading your child curbside only.
  6. Remember to enter the drive-thru from 76th Street and exit onto Grayhawk Drive.

Walkers

Students that walk home going southbound will exit through the middle doors in the back of the building and be assisted across the afternoon car pick up lane by campus assistant. Students that typically exit the front of the building to walk home will leave through their designated grade level doors. Students will not exit through the front office.
