8:45 a.m. - 8:55 a.m. Daily
In order to increase our instructional time, as per NYS Mandates, effective Monday, April 25th the morning drop off time at Beekmantown
Elementary School will change. Our parent drop off time will be between 8:45 a.m. and 8:55 a.m. The goal is to have all students in their
classrooms and ready to learn at 9:00 a.m. If your child is in need of breakfast each day, we ask that they be dropped off closer to the 8:45
time to sit and eat before going to class. For the remainder of this school year, breakfast will still be served until 9:10. **Students arriving earlier,
will need to wait until 8:45 to enter the building.
**Starting May 16th, students will be marked tardy if they arrive after 9:00.
PK3 & PK4 Drop Off:
PreK drop off time is the same (8:50 am). Parents of PK3 and PK4 students and their siblings will enter the staff/student parking lot (the first parking lot - Do NOT enter the bus loop) in front of the elementary school playground/flagpole area. Students that require parent assistance getting in and
out of the vehicle and/or car seat must use this drop off location each day. Staff members, aides and teachers of PK students will continue to meet students along this sidewalk and bring them inside. Parents will be expected to get out of their cars and assist their child out of their car seat.
K through 5th Drop Off:
Families dropping off students in grades K through 5 that do not require the assistance of an adult will go to the main staff parking lot (the third parking lot entrance closest to the bus loop - DO NOT enter the bus loop) ← This is a CHANGE. Once you are in the main parking lot, you will drive along the black iron fence that divides the parking lot from the bus loop and proceed all the way down until you are near the crosswalk. Staff members will be assigned at this location to help escort your child through the crosswalk. (Whenever possible, a School Support Officer will be
there to assist as well).
Please remember the following:
● Do NOT enter the bus loop. Should you arrive early, be sure your car is not in the way of the
buses entering the loop. Reminder, do NOT park in the grass.
● Parents are not to get out of the car. This is a drop and go drop off line. Students must be
ready to exit the vehicle with their backpacks on.
● Students are to exit the vehicles on the right side (sidewalk side) to ensure safety from other
vehicles in the lot.
● When pulling away from the sidewalk look to your left to ensure you don’t pull out in front
of other vehicles and watch for people in the crosswalk.
● NO MORE THAN 5 MPH when in the drop off loop. Have patience and wait your turn.
