Upon arrival at school, STUDENTS will line up at the playground or gym where they will be supervised until teachers meet their classes at 8:30 am. There is no recess before school, as we do not have enough supervision available to have all students playing at one time.
Buses typically arrive between 8:15 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Students who are brought to school by a parent or caregiver or walk/bike to school should arrive no earlier than 8:15 a.m. or 9:45 a.m. on Friday, unless on safety patrol. There is NO supervision on the playground prior to arrival or after dismissal. Students will not be able to wait in the office before and/or after school on a regular basis, only in emergency situations.
We, at Hazelwood Elementary, encourage independence. After the first week of school, students dropped off by their parents will enter the building by themselves through the north doors. Parents are not allowed to enter these doors or walk their child to the classroom because it is disruptive to learning and creates dependence in the child. Students will be greeted by their teacher at 8:30 a.m. and walk with their classmates to their classroom.
All students who arrive later than 8:30 must sign their students in the main office.
School is dismissed at 3:10 p.m. Buses leave at approximately 3:17 p.m. Parents picking up students should be here at 3:10 p.m. We do not have supervision for students after school. No students are allowed on the playground after school, unless under direct supervision of a parent or guardian.
