Arrival and Dismissal

Student Arrival 2019-2020

Student arrival in the mornings should NOT take place prior to 8:45 a.m. The school district does NOT provide supervision for children until this time.  For pedestrian safety, ALL parent drop-off parking will be located in the upper Newlonsburg lot (closest to the softball field). Note that a faculty member will supervise the upper lot in the morning and afternoon to help ensure that general traffic rules are being followed and to assist with pedestrian safety. Uncooperative drivers will be referred to the Murrysville Police.


The upper lot is accessible to cars from the roadway between Newlonsburg and the Middle School. It is located behind the Technology garage adjacent to Newlonsburg. Students may enter the building at the MAIN ENTRANCE. Please note that the gate

to the small lot behind Newlonsburg will be closed/locked from 8:15-9:05 a.m. daily to allow pedestrians to walk to the main entrance safely. Parents MUST PARK and ESCORT their child to the main entrance.


All students who arrive to school later than 9:00 a.m. MUST enter at the School Road entrance and be accompanied by a parent to the office to officially sign-in. After 9:00 a.m., a written tardy excuse must be presented.


Dismissal 2019-2020

Students who are NOT riding home on the school bus must present a written note to the classroom teacher. The note must include the name(s) of the individuals who will be responsible for picking up your child.  This note gives permission for the school to release your child to a parent or another party with the understanding that each parent/guardian is fully aware of the child care details/destination once released. Pupils will be excused from their classrooms at 3:15 p.m.


Parents or designated adults must park in the upper parking lot and walk to Entrance C. Please note that the gate to the small lot behind Newlonsburg will be closed/locked from 3:00-3:45 p.m. to allow pedestrians to walk to the stairwell safely. Parents are kindly asked to wait outside of the building on the sidewalk area. Children are not released until the designated adult identifies himself/herself to the teacher supervisor on duty. Please note that dismissal may NOT occur from individual classrooms. Early dismissals, prior to 3:15 p.m. will only be excused from the school office.


Note: Questions regarding school bus transportation after 4:00 p.m. should be
