arrival and dismissal information

2022-2023 Campus Operations and Safety Plan


The daily school hours are from 7:50 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. for all students; however, students can enter the building anytime between 7:30 and 7:50 a.m. Students who eat breakfast at school are to report to the cafeteria at this time. Students may go directly to their classrooms, beginning at 7:40 a.m.  Students who arrive prior to 7:30 a.m. should be participating in the Clayton Youth Enrichment Services program. Clayton YES! is in the building from 7:00-8:00 a.m. and from 3:00-6:30 p.m.


Students will be dismissed by their teachers in front of the school. Please facilitate school dismissal by meeting your child there.  Students who participate in the Clayton Day Care program will go to the cafeteria at 3:20 p.m.  It is very important that students be picked up on time. At 3:30 p.m., the teachers will take any student who has not been picked up to the office, where parents may pick them up. The office staff leaves at 3:45 p.m. and the office is closed after that time.

Rear of Building

Parents who drop off and pick up their children in the parking lot behind the building should park in the designated parking spaces.  Parents must escort their child from the car, across the parking lot, and into the building using the canopy door.  For safety reasons, children must not be allowed to walk through the parking lot unattended.


Please watch the Parking Lot Safety Video that Christi’s class created.


If you use Clayton Day Care, please escort your child in and out of the building through the cafeteria door.

Front of Building

Parents who drop off and pick up their children on W. Cantey Street in the front of the building should park alongside the curb (no double parking). Children should enter or exit the car on the curb side. We discourage parents from parking across the street and walking in between the carpool line as there is danger of not being seen by cars who are pulling away from the curb. Parents who drop off and pick up students in the front of the building should not park in the bus zone during the times stated by the bus zone sign.
