Student safety is priority number one at the Pine Glen School.
Student safety is priority number one at the Pine Glen School. The Burlington Police Safety Officer has been instrumental in the development of our dismissal policy.
From Safety Officer:
• DO NOT PASS VEHICLES IN FRONT OF YOU
• DO NOT PASS SCHOOL BUSES WHILE THEY ARE DISCHARGING STUDENTS
• BY STATE LAW, BUSES MAY NEVER BE PASSED IF THEIR LIGHTS ARE FLASHING
When dropping children off in the morning or picking them up at dismissal time, all vehicles must enter the first entryway into the parking lot and drive in a clockwise path through the parking lot to the horseshoe path in front of the side academic wing of the building. Cars must stay in a single file line as they wait their turn to pull up for student exit or entry from the vehicle.
No one is to drive a car in the driveway in front of the building during pick-up and dismissal.
Parents leaving their vehicles and walking into the building to take students at pick-up time or escort them to by-pass this procedure will kindly be asked to return to their vehicles and proceed to the pick-up/drop-off line.
If you need to enter the school with your child in the morning or afternoon during dismissal or pick-up for a related educational reason (to carry in a special project, provide medicine to the nurse, etc.), you must park in the parking lot and enter the school through the FRONT door. Under no circumstances should children be crossing the traffic line between the lot and the school without an adult.
For the safety of everyone – children, parents, and staff members – please follow these very important guidelines.
