Arrival Times - Look for teachers and other helpers with balloons!
8:15am arrival for 1st - 4th grade
9:30am arrival for Kindergarten (1st day only)
We do our best to make first day entry easier by having the teacher meet their class at a designated location at 8:30am. From day two on, 1st-5th grade students enter at the main entrance and Kindergarten enters at the cafeteria. Parents, please know you may accompany your student into the school on day one, but please make the goodbye brief so that all parents "kiss and go" by 8:45am.)
8:30am Bell, Star Spangled Banner & Announcements -- our day begins
9:30am arrival for Kindergarten students to plaza where the teacher will greet & pick up their class); parents may walk their child to the classroom and stay momentarily, but we ask that you make a swift exit (no later than 9:45am) to allow the first day to begin
3:25pm Kindergarten teachers dismiss students to parents through cafeteria doors on plaza
1st - 2nd grade teachers dismiss students through main entrance doors and dismiss on plaza
3rd grade teachers dismiss students through door on Oak Street/State Street
4th and 5th grade students dismiss through door on Oak Street/Dearborn Street
PLEASE NOTE: There is no "car line pick up" after school. Parents that drive must park in the neighborhood (pay meters) and walk to the school to get your children. Please do not double (or triple!) park around the school or you will be ticketed or towed very quickly by the police. We encourage all parents that can walk, to do so.
Right at School is our after school provider. They operate each and every day school is in session. If you signed your child up for after school care, the teacher will have a list for dismissal but it is helpful on day one to send a note if your child needs to go to Right at School, taking the "pay bus" or getting picked up by a parent/guardian.
Ogden East has some after school clubs that will be starting up soon.
