The first major change is the changing of the direction of traffic on Brother Patrick Drive. Brother Patrick Drive traffic will now be one-way from 4th Street south to 5th Street. Parent volunteers will still help students in K-2 out of the cars on Brother Patrick in the morning, starting at 7:45 a.m. Please see the maps for a visual explanation of the traffic pattern change.
The second major change is that all students in K-8 will be dismissed from the cafeteria. There will no longer be pick up along Brother Patrick Drive.
We are in need of more parents to volunteer to help during morning drop-off on Fourth Street. Please click here to sign up.
Kindergarten – 2nd grade may drop off on Brother Patrick Drive sidewalk beside Primary School, starting at 7:45 a.m.
3rd - 8th graders and K – 2nd graders with 3rd – 8th grade siblings drop off on 4th Street sidewalk and enter through cafeteria. Drop-off traffic enters 4th Street line from Laurel St., Hickory St., or further west. Drop-off begins at 7:30 a.m., and students are dismissed to their classrooms at 7:45 a.m.
4th Street Cafeteria drop-off traffic turns left on Beech or goes straight on 4th to avoid pedestrians on section of Beech between church and school. K-8th grade walk-up traffic may use church or rectory parking lots. Parents should accompany their children as they cross streets.
PK3 and PK4 students should be walked to their back door, which opens at 7:45 a.m.
Please travel east on 4th Street for the safest way to drop off and pick up your students.
Half day PK3 and PK4 students are dismissed from their back door between 11:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Full day PK3 and
PK4 students are dismissed from their back door between 2:15 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
PreK students can be dismissed to the cafeteria after the first week of school if the parent chooses.
Students in grades K-5 will dismiss at 2:55 p.m. from the cafeteria.
Middle school students dismiss from the cafeteria at 3:10 p.m. Students in grades K-5 who have siblings in middle school go to the holding room. They are brought to the cafeteria for the 3:10 p.m. dismissal.
Parents may drive up to pick up students from the cafeteria for both the 2:55 p.m. and 3:10 p.m. dismissals. Parents may also park and walk to the cafeteria doors if they prefer. Please bring the student name car hang tags distributed by the HSA at the start of the school year (or something equivalent) so your children can be efficiently dismissed to you. Many parents who drive up use a small hanger to display the name of their students.
Please do not use your cell phone during drop off and pick up, to protect the safety of all.
