Parent Pick Up Procedures

Iola Elementary School Arrival/Drop Off and Dismissal/Pick Up Procedures


Arrival/Morning Drop Off

Students being dropped off in the mornings at school, or students that are walkers, will only be allowed to enter the building through the main entrance doors on the West side of the building starting at 7:30 a.m.  Vehicles will enter the school parking lot off of Kentucky Street using the South entrance into the parking lot.  After dropping students off, vehicles will need to exit the parking lot through the North exit.  Students should not arrive at school before 7:30 a.m. when the doors will be opened.  ALL students will then report to the cafeteria if they eat breakfast or to the gym if they do not eat breakfast.


Dismissal/Pick Up Procedures

All walkers and car riders will be dismissed out of the front doors of the school on the West side of the building.  Cars will enter the South entrance into the parking lot and proceed to the front of the building.  Starting with the South end of the front of the building, students will be in order from Preschool to 5th grade starting at the South end of the front of the building going to the North end of the front of the building.  If you have multiple children to pick up, siblings will be in the same line as the youngest sibling in order for you to pick all of them up at one stop.  There will be one lane of traffic for pick up and once you have loaded your child, you may pull out around the vehicle in front of you and proceed to the North exit of the parking lot and the next vehicle can then pull up. 

Parents/Guardians will not be allowed to exit their vehicles while picking up their child.  If a student needs help getting in the vehicle/car seat, the parent/guardian will need to park in the parking lot and come and get their child from the teacher.  If a parent/guardian needs to talk to their child’s teacher, it is best to e-mail the teacher to set up a meeting.  If your meeting is set for after school, the parent/guardian will need to park and then come into the school for the meeting. 

School dismissal is at 3:29 p.m. every day EXCEPT for Early Release on Wednesdays and then dismissal will be at 2:40 p.m.  We will NOT be having Early Release on the first day of school!
