    As we start the school year, we want you to know that nothing is more important to us as a school than your child's safety. To make sure your child and other children are safe getting to school, we ask that you follow these guidelines for drop-off/pick up here at Alta Elementary:


    1.    We would like to have all students, if possible be dropped off at the back gate for school. It will be unlocked at 7:45 AM, as this is when staff are on contract and when they can be supervised. Please do not drop off students before this time as they will be unsupervised.


    2.    The back gate will be locked at 8:10 AM. If your student arrives after this

               time, we ask that you bring them to the front entrance door of Alta

               Elementary. If before 8:20 AM (the start of school) the student can just go

                to their class, if they arrive after that, they will need to report to the office

                and they will get them where they need to go


    3.    We ask that if you are dropping off students for the bus, please do not stop in the middle of the street and then have the student go across to the buses. We ask that students do not go between the buses, as that is a safety hazard.
