Routine Arrival and Dismissal Procedures at Villano
See below to view a map identifying the drop-off zones for Villano School.
Student supervision begins at 8:15 AM. The school day begins promptly at 8:40 AM.
Please ask your children to cross only at the crossing guard areas and to move efficiently when entering or exiting your vehicle. Students should always exit the vehicle from the passenger side.
Please respect the drop-off zone. Do not wait in the area for extended periods. The purpose of the zone is to drop off and go.
All students who arrive by bus will be dropped off at the front of the courtyard.
Students arriving late to school must be escorted to the office and signed in before reporting to class.
For the safety of our students, dismissal at the end of the day must remain as consistent as possible throughout the school year. Students will be dismissed by their classroom teacher.
For student pick-up via car, please designate with your child an area to meet that is not directly in front of the school. Parking or idling in the area in front of the courtyard on High Street is not permitted.
Important Safety Reminders for Arrival and Dismissal
The safety and security of our students has been and always will be a top priority at our schools. We urge all caregivers to exercise caution when operating vehicles near and around our schools. With everyone working to follow the procedures in place at both elementary schools we can ensure the safety of our students.
All cars should drive slowly and attentively near our schools. Pedestrians should ALWAYS be given the right of way regardless of the presence of a crossing guard.
Only district authorized vehicles may enter the Villano School parking lot during arrival and dismissal times.
Parking in the designated drop-off zone during arrival or dismissal is NOT permitted. This area is reserved for parents to ‘drop and go.’ Waiting in the drop-off zone, exiting your vehicle to help students out of the car, or leaving your car there to walk your child to another location disrupts the flow of traffic, and creates an unsafe situation.
All cars should go to the farthest point of the drop-off zones so that additional cars can enter and exit the zone safely.
Seating school-aged children on the rear passenger side of the vehicle enables them to exit the car safely to the sidewalk. Please avoid having students exit the vehicle from the driver’s side.
