Drop-Off & Pick-Up Procedures

Student Hours

Students dressed as pirates with adult for pirate night

Student hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. Students may enter the building between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. There is no adult supervision for students prior to 7:30 a.m. Students who arrive between 7:30 a.m. and 7:40 a.m. will be supervised in the cafeteria until it is time to report to their classrooms. Our school day officially begins at 8:00 a.m.; therefore, any students arriving after 8:00 a.m. are tardy. If your child arrives after 8:00 a.m., please park and enter the building to sign him/her in so he/she can receive a tardy pass. Please strive to have your children at school on time daily. It will help them develop a positive pattern and create independent students. 

Morning Arrival for Car Riders

You may drop your child off at Elmont Elementary School beginning at 7:30 a.m. The designated area for student drop off is in front of our school. A staff member will be present beginning at 7:30 a.m. to supervise students as they make their way into the building. We will help students exit their vehicles once they are in front of the school doors. We encourage all other students to open the door closest to the sidewalk and stay on the walkways to ensure individual safety.  

Notifying Staff of Changes in Afternoon Dismissal Plans

If you need to alter your child’s typical dismissal plan, please send a note to your child’s teacher in the morning. If an emergency arises and you need to make a last minute change, please call the school office at 365-8100 before 1:30 p.m. We will not accept an e-mail or text for transportation changes. 

Early Dismissal for Appointments

If your child has a medical appointment that requires early dismissal, please complete and send in a note to make your child’s teacher and or our office staff aware. Parents who wish to pick their children up prior to our regular dismissal (2:20 p.m.) should plan to pick up him/her in the office before 2:00 p.m. 

Afternoon Dismissal for Car Riders

If you plan to pick your child up from school at dismissal, please park in the main lot and enter the building and proceed to the cafeteria to pick him/her up. You will need to show your identification.
