Nerge Revised Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures 

Our arrival and dismissal procedures have been updated to comply with health and safety guidelines.  Please note, we cannot permit more than 50 individuals in one area at a time so kindly allow our staff to assist students once they are on the school grounds.  Additionally, we require students to wear masks when entering and exiting the building.  

Please keep in mind that the parking lot closes between 8:25 AM-8:35 AM and 3:00 PM-3:15 PM Monday-Friday for bus entry and exit.  At 8:40 AM or after parents must escort their children to the main entrance and go through next steps with our secretaries.  Our playground will be closed during arrival and dismissal each day.  We will be directing families to clear school grounds until all students have been dismissed.  

Arrival Procedures

Outdoor supervision by Nerge staff members will begin at 8:25 AM.  Students will be let into the building starting at 8:30 AM.  Please ensure that your child does not arrive early.  Students will be required to be socially distanced prior to entering the building.  Your child may stand on one of the painted dots or on a crack between each concrete slab as they are 6ft apart from one another.  

Walkers 

All walkers will enter through the front doors of Nerge School.  Adult supervision is present at the 4 Way Stop, the intersection of Woodfield Trail and Carlsbad, starting at 8:25 AM to help students cross the streets safely. 

Bus Riders

Student bus riders will enter through the front doors of Nerge School.  Staff will assist buses in unloading one at a time starting at 8:30 AM.

Transportation by Family Vehicle

Students transported by car will enter through the back doors of Nerge School.  Students being dropped off by family vehicles will use Jennifer Lane.  Please use the “kiss and ride” procedure- kiss your child/children good-bye quickly in the car, drop them off, and drive on.  This will ensure a quick, safe, and moving stream of cars.  

  • Pull up along the school side of Jennifer Lane in a single line.  Drivers will be directed to pull up as far along the concrete area as possible in order to accommodate multiple cars at one time.  Do not drop children off on the opposite side of the street.  
  • Please follow the staff directions as we will be limiting the number of students entering the building at one time.
  • Be sure to travel one way heading north to ensure safety for students and drivers.  Do not use neighborhood driveways to turn around.
  • If you need to get out of your car to assist your child, we ask that you pull up approximately 30 meters past the concrete area before stopping.  Parents exiting their cars to assist their children are asked to wear masks and maintain 6ft social distancing should they approach the school grounds.

Dismissal Procedures

Outdoor supervision by Nerge staff members will begin at 3:00 PM.

Bus Riders

Student bus riders will exit the building using the front doors of Nerge School.  We will dismiss students in waves by bus numbers to ensure social distancing and limiting the number of students in one location at any given time.

Walkers and Transportation by Family Vehicle 

Walkers will exit the building using the front doors of Nerge School.  Students transported by car will exit using the back doors of Nerge School.  All classrooms have been divided into 4 waves.  Promptly at 3:00,  we will dismiss one wave of students.  After those students have left the school grounds/found their cars, we will proceed to the next wave until all waves have been dismissed.  Students will use visual markers outside to stay socially distanced while finding their after school transportation.  

As a driver please ensure the following: 

  • Pull up along the school side of Jennifer Lane in a single line.  Drivers will be directed to pull up as far along the concrete area as possible in order to accommodate multiple cars at one time.  Do not pull up on the opposite side of the street.  
  • Once you have your children in the car, travel one way heading north to ensure safety for students and drivers.  Do not use neighborhood driveways to turn around.
  • If you need to get out of your car to meet your child, we ask that you pull up approximately 30 meters past the concrete area before stopping.  Parents exiting their cars to meet their children are asked to wear masks and maintain 6ft social distancing should they approach the school grounds.
