    Drop-Off & Pick-Up Information - NEW 2018-2019

    This is a friendly reminder about our drop-off and pick-up times and procedures.

    Students who are eating breakfast are welcome in at 8:30 on Tuesday through Friday, and 9:30 on Mondays (late start). Students here for breakfast should enter through the front doors by the main office and proceed directly to the cafeteria. All other students should be dropped off between 8:45 and 8:55 on Tuesday through Thursday, and 9:45 to 9:55 on Mondays. Curb-side drop-off is through the south gate along McFarland St; students can go directly to their classrooms or library at this time. Students should arrive in their classrooms before the tardy bell rings at 9:00 (10:00 on Mondays), to begin their wonderful day of learning on-time.

    Pick-up of all kindergarten and first grade students is directly outside each classroom door at 3:30. Students may not leave unaccompanied. Older siblings may walk across the playground to arrive at the classroom doors to pick up K-1 students. All second through fifth grade students will exit through the south gate (McFarland St.) at 3:30. Thank you for helping us keep our students supervised and safe.

    YOU ALSO CAN CALL the Northern Idaho Crisis Center at 208-625-4884. The Crisis Center helps people 18 and older who are having a mental health crisis. The Crisis Center is a joint project between Panhandle Health District, Kootenai Health and Heritage Health. The center is free, safe, private, and voluntary.

    Guidance for Families:

    If your student exhibits any of the warning signs, don’t be afraid to ask if they have thought about suicide or if someone is hurting them. Raising the issue of suicide does not increase the risk or plant the idea. On the contrary, it creates the opportunity to offer help.

    Ask your child if they think any of their friends or classmates exhibit warning signs. Talk with them about how to seek help for their friend or classmate. Guide them on how to respond when they see or hear any of the warning signs.

    Listen to your children’s comments without judgment. Doing so requires that you fully concentrate, understand, respond, and then remember what is being said. Put your own agenda aside.

    Get help from a school-employed or community-based mental health professional if you are concerned for your child’s safety or the safety of one of their peers.

    This can be a difficult time for many students, especially for those who are already at risk of suicide and harmful behaviors. Talk to your child early and often. Learn the warning signs, here:
