You will be receiving and completing a transportation form to let us know how your child will be getting to and from school. Please be aware that students need to bring a note each time there is a change in transporation. If a student plans to go home with another student, both students need to bring a note to school. Transportation changes must be made and communicated to the school office before 2:00 p.m. each day to ensure the information reaches teachers before the end of the school day.
Safety is our number one priority at East Side. Several procedures are in place to make sure that your child stays safe in the car line and bus lot. It is of great importance that parents know the expectations and follow them completely for the sake of all students. We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Car Line: The car line assembles along Davis Ave. Parents pull along the sidewalk in single file to pick up students. A few students are loaded at a time and then the line is permitted to move on. At no time are students allowed to be on the sidewalk when cars are moving. A stop-go sign at the beginning of the car line will let you know when you may safely proceed. Davis Avenue is a one way street so no U-turns are permitted out of the car line and neither is a turn into the Brazil Nazarene Church parking lot allowed. At no time are you able to pass cars in line in front of you. A right turn onto HWY 40 is the only permissible turn after exiting the car line as we need to keep the line moving. At no time are cars permitted in the bus lot in front of the school during drop off or pick-up. Busses are loaded in the afternoon first and as soon as they have safely departed, the car line begins. Walkers are released last after all busses and cars have left the area There is a designated area along Davis Ave. where parents may wait for their students who are walkers. A little patience will go a long way in assisting our staff and keeping every child safe! Thank you.
