The parking lot west of the playground may be utilized at any time throughout the school day. You may also park along the street in the parking spots parallel to the school.
Please do not park in the front drive on the west side of the building from 10:20-10:35 am and from 11:30-11:45 am because preschool buses will be in the front drive during those times.
The front drive will be closed to car traffic at 1:45 pm to allow for busses to line up for end-of-the-day pickup.
Students needing to be picked up early for an appointment must be picked up prior to 1:45 pm. After that time, we ask that parents use the normal dismissal procedures to ensure the safety of our staff and students as traffic will begin to increase at the entrances at that time.
If you need to pick up your child early from school for an appointment or emergency, the procedures are as follows:
Call the office (217) 639-8000 to let us know of the early pickup.
Upon arrival, notify the office by pressing the button on the a-phone. Wait outside and have identification ready.
Secretary or school personnel will walk the student to the door, check identification, and release the student to the parent or guardian.
