2017-2018 Mountain View Elementary Carpool Procedures

In order to expedite car pool in the safest and most efficient manner, we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines:

 

General Safety Guidelines:

·       Please use both lanes of the driveway when entering Mountain View.

·       Traffic must merge into one lane at the traffic cones.

·       Stay in a single line.  Please do not pass cars unless directed by staff.

·       Your child needs to exit and enter the car from the passenger side (the curb side).  If they cannot exit and enter from this side you will need to park and either walk them across the parking lot or walk over to retrieve them in the afternoon.

Morning:

·       Please pull your car as far forward as possible before stopping to let your student out.  This allows more students to exit their vehicles.

·       Students should be ready to exit the car when it stops.  Please make sure that students are ready to get out when the car stops.

·       Students should exit from the passenger side ONLY.

·       Please drive slowly and watch for pedestrians.

·       Parents are not allowed to get out of their cars.  Should your child need additional assistance getting out of the vehicle or unloading items, please park and escort your student into the building.

·       Please allow extra time during inclement weather.

·       Carpool begins at 7:20 a.m.  Students are not permitted to be dropped off before this time.

·       It is imperative that students are not dropped off in the parking lot, only in the car rider line.

·       Students will be marked tardy if they are not in their classrooms when the bell rings at
7:50 a.m. If your child is tardy, please park your car and escort your child to the office to check them into school.

Afternoon:

·       Afternoon carpool begins at 2:20 p.m.

·       Cars should pull as far forward as possible before stopping.

·       Please display your car rider tag on your rear view mirror to expedite our ability to call for your student(s). Mountain View duty personnel and safety patrol will escort the student to your car.

·       If you do not have a car rider tag on display, you will need to park your vehicle to retrieve your student(s).

·       Parents are not allowed to get out of their cars.  Should your child need additional assistance getting buckled in, please pull into the parking lot to take care of these concerns.

·       Students not picked up by 2:40 will be placed into ASP at the parents’ expense.

 

Walkers will be dismissed after the rush of carpool ends at approximately 2:35. 

 

Thank you for your cooperation with keeping everyone’s safety in mind.

School-Day Extended 45 Minutes on August 21 due to Solar Eclipse

 

Due to the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017,  the Cobb County School District will delay dismissal of elementary, middle and high school students by 45 minutes.  Elementary schools will dismiss at 3:00.

The peak time to experience the solar eclipse falls during our regularly scheduled elementary school dismissal time.  Since student safety is always our first priority so we will delay dismissal to ensure that neither students nor employees are on the roadways during the time of the eclipse.   Subsequently, high schools and middle schools will delay dismissal as well.

Parent Information Letter

For more information regarding the solar eclipse visit the National Weather Service at http://www.weather.gov/sgf/SolarEclipse.

Yellow Tag

Special note to parents of children 8 years old or younger:  A yellow tag will be issued to your student.  Please attach it to his/her book bag. This tag will assist transportation staff to quickly identify that your student is 8 years old or younger, which provides another safety net for proper delivery of your child. The yellow tag must remain on the top strap of your child’s bookbag and be visible to the driver at all times.  For safety purposes, do not write or remove the tag.

 

Water will be allowed on the busses during the months of August and September only.  ALL students may bring water in containers with a screw on lid.  If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Department at 678/594-8000, or email your transportation area supervisor whose email can be found on the transportation website: http://www.cobbk12.org/centraloffice/Transportation/

The next content acquisition process will include K-12 Science and Social Studies. As we continue to establish a balanced instructional approach as outlined in the Cobb Commitment, we will consider resources that support this model and address the needs identified through our needs assessment and district data. 

 

To ensure that teachers have ample time to review resources in Fall 2017, we are beginning the process now with the distribution of needs assessments to teachers, admin, and parents. Having this information early means we can schedule the Phase 1 committee to meet over the summer to conduct a standards alignment of potential resources in preparation for Phase 2 training and implementation in September 2017.

Parents,

When you are dropping your child/ren off in the morning or picking them up in the afternoon please do not park in surrounding neighborhoods, block any roadways, stop illegally, or impede the flow of traffic.  These infractions can result in a traffic citation or parking violation.
