ARRIVAL CHECK POLICY
Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Academy
Kindergarten to Grade 3
*****NOTE: The school is locked before 8:30 am and at 3:30 pm*****
In addition to the above policy, care for the youngest children at Gaglardi Academy requires a broader range of security measures, especially during periods of transition. During these busy times, such as the beginning and end of school, there are many people and vehicles about the school. Although Gaglardi Academy has supervision, a stranger or suspect vehicle is more likely to go unnoticed. Therefore, if you are a parent/guardian of a Kindergarten to Grade 3 child, please come directly to the classroom to drop-off or pick-up your child. At the end of the day, children in these grades will only be released into the care of a parent/guardian or their designate. If for any reason you are going to be late picking up your child at dismissal time, please call the office. A simple explanation to your child dispels fears that you may have forgotten him/her. Moreover, picking your child up on time shows consideration towards our teachers.
If your young child takes the bus, the child will remain in the care of a responsible adult until 3:00 pm when your child will transition to the care of the bus driver. If you chose to have an older sibling (must be 12+ years old) take responsibility for picking up your young child, whether they are on the bus or walking them to a vehicle, please notify the school, in writing, so that we can keep the correct permission on file.
