Windsor School begin at 9:05am. Staff members begin outdoor supervision at 8:50. The first bell rings at 8:55 and the second at 9:00. Staff members will signal to students when to line up by their classes on the blacktop to prepare to enter the school. Windsor School does not have any students transported by bus. Instead, students arrive to school many ways including being dropped off by parents, walking, riding bikes, or taking a taxi. Here are some important procedures for each method of arrival.
DROP & GO!: Our parent drop-off procedures are fondly known as Drop & Go! Our PTA supports the safety of our students by coordinating Drop & Go volunteers. If you'd like to volunteer, more information can be found at this link. Below are the procedures for Drop & Go:
• Parents must follow the volunteer’s direction and pull up to the front of the line.
• Do not pass cars in front of you.
• Children must be ready to exit the car as parents pull into the line (no looking for backpacks, putting folders away, etc.) or they will be directed to circle the block.
• Parents must NOT GET OUT OF THE CAR.
• Pull up, volunteers open doors (if needed), kids exit, volunteer closes the door, the car leaves.
• Parents pull away when the door closes-no watching the kids walk in-following the car in front of you.
Riding Bikes: Students who ride bikes to school should please walk their bike once they arrive on Windsor school grounds. They can lock bikes on one of the bike racks on the side of the school by the corner of Miner and Windsor.
Taxis: Some students qualify for District-provided transportation by taxi. These taxis drop-off and pick up students in the front circle of the building. Students are greeted by teachers upon exiting the taxi. NO PARENTS may drop off students in the front lot during arrival times.
**Staff members will monitor outside until 9:05. If students arrive after 9:05, parents should bring them in through the front office where students will receive a tardy slip to enter their classroom.
Students in 1st-5th grades are dismissed at 3:35. AM Kindergarteners are dismissed at 11:55 and PM Kindergarteners are dismissed at 3:35.
Parent Pick-Up: Students are dismissed out two main doors leading to the playground. Parents may park their cars past the road signs on Windsor and greet their students on the playground. Or, parents can wait in their cars along Windsor for students to find them. Parents MAY NOT get out of their cars while in between the arrival/dismissal signs on Windsor.
Taxis: Some students qualify for District-provided transportation by taxi. These taxis drop-off and pick up students in the front circle of the building. Teachers help students enter the cabs safely, put in carseats, etc. NO PARENTS may pick up students in the front lot during dismissal times.
**Any students who have not been picked up by 3:45 will be walked back to the Windsor office by a staff member. Parents may not let their children play on the Windsor playground after school without supervision.
