AM: Students should NOT arrive at school any earlier than 8:55 a.m. There is no supervision for your children prior to this time. Students will be allowed to enter their classrooms once the first morning bell rings at 9:00 a.m. Students riding the buses will be allowed to exit the bus and enter the building to go directly to their classroom. We are asking that parents say goodbye to their children at an exterior door and not enter the building unless they need to speak to the office or a teacher.
PM: Each teacher will lead his/her group to the bus loading zone in an orderly fashion. Bus riders will be excused to the buses, car riders will be excused to the side lot or to their parents, and walkers will be excused at the covered play area. Teachers will check out their classrooms on the clipboard by the office windows. Bus riders are to immediately load buses if the bus has arrived, or they are to wait quietly in line for buses that have not yet arrived. The bus Paraprofessional will let the buses go after all children are loaded or will inform the office if there is a problem with the buses.
There is a Paraprofessional stationed at the side parking lot to facilitate students meeting parents there. Students should wait by the school; they are not to go into the parking lot unless accompanied by an adult. Please use the crosswalk with the crossing guard when crossing the parking lot with your student.
Bus stop information is available on the District website. Bus stops will be posted at the schools the last week of August.
Students are expected to behave safely and properly on the bus, at the bus stops and to comply with driver’s directions. Please refer to the Issaquah School District School Bus Information for Parents and Students handbook, which the Transportation Department provides for detailed information on rules and safety procedures, student conduct citations, and other general bus information.
Should there be a question or concern about specific incidents on the bus, please contact Transportation Services at 425-837-6335.
Walkers are to enter the campus through the back fence and proceed to the school on the path. They are NOT to arrive at school before 8:55 a.m. An EA will open the back doors in the covered playground area at 9:00 a.m. Parents, please say goodbye at these doors and allow your children to enter the building by themselves. You may wait for your students at the same doors at the end of the day. The playground is unsupervised before and after school; students are not allowed there unsupervised.
