Class starts promptly at 7:40 am. Children may be dropped off at school no earlier than 7:15 am. Buses will load and unload in front of the building. You will be dropping your child off on the east side of the building by the cafeteria. Please pull up as far as possible. At that point, your child may exit the passenger side of the vehicle. Parents are not allowed to drop off students in the front of the school or in the parking lot (until after 7:35). There will not be a crossing attendant to cross students from the parking lot. If your child walks or rides a bike to school, there is a crossing attendant to assist the students when crossing the road. Students must remain on the crosswalk and wait to be crossed by the crossing attendant.
Note: Please, do not exit your vehicle while unloading or loading in this lane and do not allow your child to exit or enter on the driver side of the vehicle, this is a dangerous area. We have staff members placed on the sidewalks to assist with students as they exit and enter vehicles.
The first bell rings at 7:35 am. At that time, students in the hallways or cafeteria will be released to their classrooms. The final bell rings at 7:40 am. Students should be in their homeroom class at this time or they will be counted tardy. If a child is not yet in his or her classroom at 7:40 he or she needs to go to the office for a tardy slip.
Afternoon Pick-Up Procedures
School is dismissed at 3:25 pm. Please be sure to discuss with your child his or her after school plans (pickup, walking home, or riding the bus) so he or she knows what to do each day.
Your assigned family number will remain the same as last year. Your family number will be used for picking up your child through the car line or walk-up line. If you are new to JKB you will receive a sticker and pick up a pass with your family number on it. It is imperative that your child memorizes this number before the first day of school. The sticker is to be placed on the lower window of the passenger side so it is visible to our staff. Additional stickers may be purchased in the office for $2.00. Parents who prefer to walk up must present their family number at the east side of the building (gym door). Any person that does not have a family number with them at pick up will be asked to park, go to the office and show picture identification before any child is released. This procedure helps to monitor the safety of our children.
Early Pick-Up & Messages to Student
If you need to pick up your child prior to dismissal due to medical appointments, you must send a note in the morning or call the school prior to 2:20 pm that day. After you have checked in the office with proper identification, we will call your child to the office. Please be aware that children will not be released through the office after 2:35. In order to ensure that your child receives any messages or notifications of change in their normal routine, we ask that you please let the office know prior to 2:20. We will not take messages after 2:20.
Please keep in mind that the safety of our students is our primary concern.
