Your child has officially started their academic career as a Rutherford Bulldog! Thank you all for your cooperation as we navigate the start of school. I assure you it will be much easier in the next few days and I strongly recommend that any family with a child that is able to exit the car independently, use the drop off lane going forward.
Just a few reminders:
- Drop off is between 8:30 and 8:45. The drop-off lane runs up Highland Cross and extends the full length of the school on Sylvan Street. This is indicated by cones. Students are to exit once the car is stopped on Sylvan Street in the lane. Please do not stop and wait to pull up to the front of the line. Students are to exit along the entire front of the building. Staff is there to ensure their safety entering the building.
- Parents who are walking their children to school are asked to not bring family pets and/or to be sure they do not interfere with the sidewalk in the front of the school during arrival or on school property during dismissal.
- Parents must supervise their child(children) while they are on school property. Safety is a priority. No standing on the climbing rock or jumping off any playground equipment or the wall. No pushing or shoving. No throwing. These rules will be reviewed daily throughout the month. Bulldog Care utilizes our outside space starting at 3:00 on a daily basis. Please be sure to exit the property prior to their start time
- Please be sure to pack a nut-free snack and a refillable water bottle along with a lunch (if not ordered) daily!
