2019-2020 Richfield DROP OFF AND PICK UP PROCEDURES

School Hours are 8:50-3:30

Students are encouraged to ride the bus to and from school. If you choose to bring your child, there are designated areas and procedures that parents must follow for the safety of all students.

 

 Morning Drop Off:

 All students are to be dropped off at the parent drop off location on the north side of the building by the gym beginning at 8:30 a.m. There is an adult present from 8:30-8:50 a.m. to assure the safety of each child. Any child coming in after 8:50 is tardy and must be signed in at the main office by a parent.

 

  1. Any parents wishing to park their car and walk their child in are asked to park in the parking lot and walk between the marked cone area. 
  2. Parents that are dropping of their child are asked to form one line up against the sidewalk and have your child exit out the passenger side doors.
  3. Please pull down all the way to the end of the sidewalk and we will attempt to unload 5 cars at a time. Please be careful not to run over the cones.
  4. We ask that you do not go around other cars during drop off.
  5. Please be sure that when you drop off your child that they enter the building before you are pulling away. It is important that all students have entered safely through an unlocked door.
  6. No drop off should take place in the bus lane in the front of the school.  
  7. If a parent has a need to enter the school with their child, he or she should park in a parking spot and come into the main office. All visitors to Richfield must sign in and be prepared to show a picture ID. 

 

Afternoon Pick Up:

Parents must enter the building to pick up from the gym. Please park your car in the north parking lot and enter the building using the gym doors. The doors will open at approximately 3:20 p.m. You will be asked for photo identification when signing out your child with the school staff. Keep in mind with over 600 students it is difficult to remember everyone’s name. Failure to produce proper identification, when requested, will result in your child not being permitted to leave. 

 

The person who is picking up the student must be an adult/guardian or a person at least 18 years old who is listed on your emergency contacts in OneView. Please do not send in students or other parents to pick up your child. If another person is picking up your child and is not on the emergency list, there must be a parent note sent in that morning which the child has given to the teacher granting permission for that pick up change.
