Heritage Primary Arrival/Dismissal Procedures
Parent Drop off / Pick up of Students (see map below) All first through sixth grade students will be dropped off or picked up in front of the Heritage Primary building at 612 Blumhoff Avenue (exceptions are before or after school clubs or tutoring that occur on the Intermediate side of campus, late morning arrivals, or early afternoon pick-up). Kindergarten students are dropped off in front of the kindergarten building. Parents will need to remain in their cars and our staff will help unload / load your student. Drop off using the Heritage Primary entrance helps ensure the safety of your student, and avoids our buses being blocked in from traffic congestion as they exit on the Carr Street side of campus. Please remember that students may not be dropped off in the morning before 8:05 am. If a student arrives after 8:20 am, a parent or adult MUST accompany a student into the building and sign them in as a late arrival in the Intermediate Office. Please note there is no early dismissal from the Primary Office between 3:00 pm and 3:20 pm. If you must pick up your student early from school, please do so prior to 3:00 pm.
Walkers Students who live close enough to walk to school from the east side of campus may enter and be dismissed on the Intermediate side. All other walkers should arrive and be dismissed at the Heritage Primary cafeteria entrance. Heritage staff are stationed at designated crosswalks starting at 8:05 am. Students should not arrive prior to 8:05 am or attempt to cross any street without a crossing guard present. If you meet your walker, please wait outside the appropriate doors to retrieve your child. You may then proceed to the crosswalk. If you have designated your student to be a walker, they will be expected to enter and exit the building at the appropriate doors and considered to be living close enough to walk to and from home.
Bus Riders Buses will load and unload in the rear of the school buildings.
Chautauqua Families who need to drop off earlier than 8:05 am (or 10:05 am on late start days) or pick up later than 3:20 pm may enroll their students in our Chautauqua before/after school program. Parents and students may access this program through the Heritage Primary cafeteria doors beginning at 6:00 am for early arrivals and until 6:00 pm in the evening. For more information about the Chautauqua program, please click here or you can call 636-327-5090 with additional questions.
Any changes to a student’s regular mode of transportation will need a written note to the teacher and/or a parent phone call to the school office before 2 pm. This procedure will ensure enough time to communicate the change to the classroom teacher. Thank you for your cooperation in following our student arrival and dismissal procedures. You may contact the Intermediate office at 636-327-3839 if you have any questions or concerns.
