A Few Reminders

Please ensure that you are aware of the following if you are dropping off or picking your child(ren) up from Falgarwood. Also, please share this information with other caregivers who may periodically assist you with drop off or pick up.

Times for drop off and pick up
Morning Entry- School begins at 9:25a.m. Students are to be dropped off between 9:10a.m. and 9:25a.m. If you arrive at school prior to 9:00a.m., your child must wait with you.
Afternoon Dismissal - School ends at 3:45p.m. Students must be picked up from the blacktop area behind the school at 3:45p.m. If you need to pick your child up prior to dismissal, it must occur at the office before 3:30p.m. Students will not be called from class between 3:30p.m. and 3:45p.m.
Utilizing the “Kiss N’ Ride” (mornings only)
From 9:10a.m. to 9:25a.m., we have a supervised “Kiss N’ Ride” area that is clearly marked with a sign, pylons, and at least one staff member wearing an orange vest. Regardless of the number of cars “in” the Kiss N’ Ride, you must pull up to the front of the Kiss N’ Ride before having your child(ren) exit your vehicle. Following this procedure helps prevent traffic jams behind you. When the Kiss N’ Ride is extremely busy, please wait the extra 30-60 seconds until the cars in front of you have exited the parking lot. All students should be exiting vehicles from the same spot (front of the Kiss N’ Ride). Jackets, hats, backpacks and other personal belongings should be accessible to your child so they are ready to exit the vehicle when you are at the front of the line.
To accommodate our school buses at entry and dismissal times, we ask that all parents and caregivers park on one of the streets near the school. Please ensure that you are parking in a permitted spot. The signs on the streets close to our school clearly indicate where parking is not permitted. Schools are busy places and it may take you some time to find parking. Parking and the walk from your vehicle to the blacktop area behind the school can take an additional 5-10 minutes.  Please plan accordingly when visiting the school at what we consider to be our busy times for traffic (i.e. - between 9:10a.m. and 9:25a.m. and from 3:30p.m. to 4:00p.m.)
Bus Cancellations due to inclement weather
If buses are cancelled in the morning, they are also cancelled for the afternoon. When buses are cancelled but schools remain open, you must have a plan in place for your child at 3:45p.m.(dismissal).
