School Hours, Visitor Information, Transportation Changes, & Etc.

School Office Hours
The office will be available for contact from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Monday through Friday.  Although our building is closed to outside visitors we are here to support you and welcome you to the new year.
Please call us at 816-316-5500 should you have any questions or need any additional information.

Visitors Information:
Visitors are welcome to the building by appointment only.  Appointments will include one adult and only the child being screened, tested, or assessed.  Please note that parents will call the designated staff member communicated to them that they have arrived.  Entrance will happen through the building front doors and exiting will occur through the cafeteria (car rider) doors.  This is to ensure that everyone is screened appropriately and that there is no congestion.  Please bring your photo identification.  You will go through a health screening with temperature checks and health questions.  Once you are screened you will be lead by a staff member to your designated waiting spot for the duration of your child's screening.  Please note: if your child is coming for itinerant services, you will follow the car rider drop off and pick up procedures. 
 
Transportation Changes: Please call 816-316-5500 for all transportation changes.  Please have pick-up changes made one hour before your child's dismissal time. 
 

Car Riders ~ Parent Pick-Up:


If you arrive late to school or need to pick your child up early please call 816-316-5500 and we will greet you in the car rider lane.  


At arrival, cars will enter the back parking lot off of Winchester.  At the northernmost entrance (this will be a one-way process).  Please stay within the cones for the car rider line.  Students will enter/exit the cafeteria doors. Every parent or person picking up will need a car rider car tag or a photo ID.  Please do not drop off at the front doors.  If at all possible please have your child sit on the passenger side of your vehicle.  This will help us to keep your child safe and exit the vehicle on the sidewalk.  Please know that you will be responsible for the buckling and unbuckling of the seatbelt or child car seat.  Please remain in your car until the staff member has prompted you to assist your child.  


At dismissal, cars will enter the back parking lot off of Winchester.  Please do not try to pick your child(ren) up at the front doors. We will help your child into your vehicle (please have your child sit on the passenger side of your vehicle when possible).  We will then step aside so that you can exit the vehicle and buckle the seatbelt or child car seat. We will guide you out of the car rider line when it is safe to do so.  For the safety of our children and staff, remain in the car rider line until you have been guided by someone to the exit.  

 

We will have a sign-in clipboard for those families without a car tag and for those who are late arrivals or early dismissals.  You must have a photo ID if you do not have a car rider tag.
 

Bus Transportation:


Transportation is being routed for those of you who have requested bus services and we are working on a way that you can check your routing information.  We will put this on the website once it is ready.  


If you have a transportation change please call 816-316-5500.  If you need to make a dismissal transportation change, please contact the school office one hour before dismissal.  


On your child’s first day of school, please bring a photo ID to the bus.  At that time you will sign for your yellow bus cards as well as your green car rider card.  Only bus riders get the green car rider card. Please read all directions regarding bus processes on the back of the card.  Any adult receiving your child off of the bus must have a yellow card.
