Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

At Cawston, only staff and students will be allowed past the front office gates and school gates before and after school. We have a very qualified and diligent staff supervising the students. We have a closed campus in order to increase student safety. 

Drop Off  Procedures:

*In the morning all students may enter the campus through the main gate located at the end of the main drive on Cawston Avenue. Any adult wishing to enter campus, must check in at the office. All visitors must sign in and wear a badge when on campus. 

*Cawston is proud to offer student valet service. This is a group of trained fourth and fifth grade students who are available each and every morning to help open car doors and assist students out of the car. In order to expedite this process, please pull closely to the curb, have your student(s) seated on the right hand side of the car (if possible) and unlock your doors. This service has greatly reduced the amount of time in the drop off line in the morning! 
*PM Kindergarten students will enter the campus through the gate  located in the main drive through area next to the lunch tables. 
Pick Up Procedures:

*AM Kindergarten students will be released from the multipurpose  room’s entrance at the front of the school.

*PM Kindergarten students will be released from the blue door located in the bus loop facing Menlo Avenue. Only kindergarten students will be released from this door. 

*All students in grades first to fifth will be walked out the main gate located at the end of the main drive on Cawston Avenues.

*Please keep the sidewalk clear for teachers to escort students out to the front of the school (grass area).

*Please use the parking lot crosswalk to return to your vehicle and do not cross in the middle of the parking lot.

*Please consider establishing a designated meeting spot/area to pick up your child after school. We highly encourage parents to park on the street and walk to meet their child.
