Friendly Reminders for Arrival and Dismissal

Traffic and Parking:

  • We know that parking and traffic can be challenging at Salt Creek, but we appreciate your respectful cooperation by not parking in the red zone and by not blocking handicapped parking. We also ask that you pull all the way forward when you are in the drop off and pick up zone.

Please honor school start time and dismissal time:

  • Let’s establish good habits for our Mountain Lions by arriving to school on time. School starts promptly at 8:15 a.m.  If you arrive after the bell has rung, please go to the Attendance Office and get a late slip.  Being a few minutes late interrupts the class and takes away from instructional time.
  • School dismisses at 2:35 for Kindergarten, 2:40 for 1st grade, and 2:45 for 2nd-6th grade.  Please be on time to pick up your child.  We give about a 15 minute grace period due to traffic, but there are several students that are left unattended after school up to 3:15 and later.  This is safety issue for your child, and we will be asking your cooperation to make arrangements for timely pick up after school.

Gates will be closed and locked at 8:20 a.m.:

  • Leaving our front gates wide open after school starts is a safety issue.  The longer gates are left open, the more chances strangers can wander onto our campus without signing in through our new RAPTOR security system in the front office.  We will be asking that parents exit within five minutes after the bell rings to ensure a secure campus for our students.  If you will be staying to volunteer, please sign in with your Driver’s License on our RAPTOR system.

We thank you for cooperating with these requests as we work to make improvements to our school.  If you have any suggestions to help reduce tardies, improve safety, or create a safer environment for our students, please let us know!

Thank you!

Mrs. Perez and Miss Martinez
