Sundance Safety Reminder

  1. Drop your student off in the drop off loops or walk them to the gate closest to the playground (by the Character Counts benches).  Students may also enter campus at the gate adjacent to the community playground below Sundance.  Parents are encouraged to drop their students off at the gate, and not enter the campus.  There will be staff supervision on the playground before school.  Students will be allowed on the play structures or to sit at the tables and benches; children will not be allowed to play soccer or kickball before the start of school.
  2. These two gates will open at 7:55 and all students will go directly to the playground with their backpacks.  Students who attend class in buildings B, C, D, E, and F will not be dropping their backpacks off at the classrooms.   Students in building G, I, and H will quietly drop their backpacks off at class.
  3. At 8:00, the first bell will ring.  Students who are on the playground will then walk to pick up their backpacks.  At this time, three gates will open for students to walk to class: the gate by the B ranch house, the gate by ESS and the gate behind the F ranch house.  For students on the playground, kindergarten and first grade will go through the gate by ESS; grades 3, 4, and 5 will enter through the gate behind the F ranch house.  Any students arriving on campus after 8:00 will proceed directly to their classrooms.  At 8:05 teachers will allow students into their classroom.  
  4. All gates will be locked at 8:10 and late students and parent volunteers will enter through the front office.
