    Opt-In Early Parent Pickup (3:00PM)

    • This year, we are offering parents the option to pick up their students at 3:00PM.  This is our Opt-In Early Parent Pickup.  
    • Sign up for Opt-In Early Parent Pickup on our Online Parent Pick-up Request Form
    • These requests may be made for single/multiple days, or may be submitted as a permanent pickup.
    • Requests must be made at least 1-day in advance.  Same-day Opt-In Early Requests will not be accommodated.
    • 6th Grade parents -- if you choose to take advantage of this Opt-in early pickup, please be aware that depending on your student's schedule, they will miss 20 minutes of either a Core class or Special 

    *For any other pickup time aside from 3:00PM Opt-In Early Parent Pickup, or 3:20PM Regular Parent Pickup, please call and inform the main office.* 

    Regularly Occurring After School Parent Pick Up (3:20PM):

    • Regular Parent Pick up begins at 3:20PM.  Please understand that once dismissal has begun, we will not hold up the buses or pull students off for late arriving parent pick ups.
    • If you indicated on the 2020 Parent Survey that you will be picking up your student daily, you DO NOT need to submit a pickup request. Your response has already been noted and your child has been added to a Permanent Pick up List.
    • If you are unsure of your response, or would like to CHANGE your response, and check your student's status, please call the main office at 610-861-4040. 
    • If you would like to add your student to the daily or permanent pickup list, please use our Online Parent Pick-up Request Form - To access this form click here. Deadline for submission 2:00PM - no exceptions. If this form is submitted past 1:30PM, your child will be instructed to board their regularly scheduled school bus. We cannot get information to students without adequate advanced notice.  

    If you intend to pick up your child from school and have a consistent routine, one Online Parent Pick-up Request submission with the following information will suffice all year:

    1. Ex. “John Doe, Mrs. Gavin/Mrs. Ruth, will be picked up from school every day.
    2. Ex.“John Doe, Mrs. Gavin/Mrs. Ruth will be picked up from school every Wednesday and ride the bus home on all other school days.”
    3. If there is no consistency to your pick up routine, then an online request needs to be provided to the school each day of pick up. 

     

    Other Non-Routine After-School Pick Ups or Early Appointments: 

    Please do one of the following if you will be picking up your child early (before 3:00PM) from school.
