WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD ARRIVE AT SCHOOL?
SUPERVISION OF STUDENTS - 8:15-8:30 on back patio
Students should report to the back patio upon their arrival at school. There are teachers on the patio and supervising the drop-off line.
STUDENT DROP-OFF 8:15-8:30
From 8:15-8:30, students can be dropped off using Hilltop’s driveway down to the back patio.
ARRIVING AFTER 8:30
Cars arriving after 8:30 will drop off their child on the front sidewalk along the driveway.
The front circle is not used for drop-off.
THE INSTRUCTIONAL DAY STARTS AT 8:35
At Hilltop School, teachers begin instruction at 8:35 with the school-wide Pledge of Allegiance and morning announcements.
Any student who is not in his/her classroom at 8:35 will be marked tardy. If your child is tardy, a parent or guardian is expected to check their child into school in the main office.
Contacting of families and consequences for excessive tardies will be at the discretion of the principal.
WHEN IS DISMISSAL?
Students are dismissed at 3:15. All families must complete our dismissal form which lets us know if your child is heading out the front or back of the building, allowing us to be accountable for each child. If there is a change in daily dismissal plan, please write a note to your child's teacher (not an e-mail). CLICK HERE for the Note to School form. If it is a permanent change, contact the office so we can update your plan.
You can pick your child up in the back by pulling down our driveway and waiting in the line. You can also park and wait in the front or back of the school.
Any student who is not picked up in time will be brought to the office and we will contact the parents/guardians. Please do not arrange last-minute playdates or rides home without consulting the Hilltop office.
Students are not permitted to ride bikes, scooters or the like to and from Hilltop School.
This year the arrival and dismissal forms will be online. A link will be sent to you AFTER class lists have been sent out. This will allow us to have your child's dismissal information for the first day of school.
