Traffic Circle Reminders
Pick-Up - Students not riding a bus home are expected to be picked up in a timely manner. Dismissal is at 3:10 p.m. For safety concerns, all car riders are to be picked up in the car circle area. Students should never cross traffic lanes without the parent being present to walk with them. Adult supervision is provided daily until 3:45 p.m. We do realize that, on occasion, parents may be delayed due to heavy traffic, car trouble, or some other unforeseen circumstance. However, this situation should be the exception and not the rule.
Drop-Off - Students arriving to school by car are to be dropped off curbside in the car circle area (Roe Road Entrance) as early as 7:20 a.m. For safety reasons, students should not get out of the car and walk across the parking lot or through the line of cars. Additionally, drop off in the parking lot in front of the school and the bus loop (Driveway B) is not permitted without special permission from the administration.
Drop-off and pick-up for parents/guardians with students attending both Powdersville Elementary School and Powdersville Middle School have two choices. Students may be dropped off at Powdersville Elementary. In the afternoon, parents/guardians will need to park at the elementary school and wait for their middle school student. There is a crossing guard to assist middle school students with walking to and from the middle school. For safety concerns, elementary students are not allowed to be dropped off and picked up at the middle school. The second option is to drop off and pick up each student separately using Hood Road for the elementary school student and the Roe Road entrance for the middle school student. Parent/guardians may continue to use Driveway B (Hood Road) for late arrivals and early dismissals. We highly encourage not to sign students out from 2:30 - 3:10 unless absolutely necessary.
