Arrival & Dismissal Information for Orchard Hill

We wanted to pass along some updated information regarding our arrival and dismissal procedures.  For students taking the bus, we are planning to have staff and administrative supervision in all locations at both times.  

Parent Drop-Off

  • The two locations where you can drop of your child are via the main parking lot by the solar panels, or the cul de sac off of Burnt Hill Road near the Kindergarten classrooms.  
    • For health and safety reasons, we are trying to limit the amount of students walking throughout the building.  Please consider using this map as a guide for which location to drop off.  Yellow homerooms should drop at the cul de sac, green homerooms try to drop off at the main parking lot.  
  • Important safety protocols
    • Parent should follow traffic pattern, pull up to curb, and student should exit on passenger side of vehicle.
    • Staff will be present at both locations
    • No parent should park their car and walk student to the entrance.  

Parent Pick-Up

  • As in years past, all students require a dated note with parent/guardian signature.  If an adult who is not listed as an emergency contact in Genesis is picking up the child then he/she must be named in the note.  
  • Location:  Main parking lot
  • Contactless pickup
    • In advance, please prepare a sign that indicates student's name(s), grade level, and teacher name
      • PK students in Clewell, Vallese, & Brown-please expect separate communication
    • Place the sign on your dashboard upon pulling up to the east gym entrance
    • A staff member will bring out your child so they can get into your vehicle
    • We will maintain a sign-out log for each student being picked up.
  • If you need to make a change in your child's dismissal plan during the day, please call the main office at 609-466-7605 by 12:30pm.  We will not be able to accomodate changes after this time.  Do not email your child's teacher.
