    Chief Joseph Families,

    I would like to clarify a few issues around pick up and drop off. The cafeteria doors open for breakfast at 8:15. If your student is eating breakfast, please make sure they have time to eat. We dismiss students to classrooms at 8:38 and school starts at 8:45am. Buses no longer use the entire bus loading zone on Saratoga St. If you would like to drop your student off, without parking your car, you may do so near the front entrance. It is important that you do not park in the bus zone.

    In the afternoon, students are picked up either outside at the classroom doors for K­-1, or outside on the blacktop for 2­-5. For student safety, we ask that you follow these procedures. Please do not pick up your student from inside the building.

    Another safety concern is parking on the North side of Delaware St. This is a “No Parking” area. There is minimal visibility when backing out of this area and we do not want an accident. Please obey all parking signs.

    Thank you,
