Attention Elwood Intermediate Parents, Guardians, and Visitors

EIS Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures Reminder

Elwood Intermediate School needs your help to keep the school and your children safe. EVERY childs safety is important to us. It remains our highest priority to ensure that students enter and exit cars and buses in a safe and organized way. We ask everyone to correctly follow our pick-up and drop-off procedures. Failure to do so creates chaos, frustration and unsafe conditions. Discuss proper drop-off and pick-up procedures with your children. Please help assure the safety of everyone on campus by following the guidelines set forth below:
  • Be your childs best example. Please be courteous and follow all safety signs and guidelines at all times.
  • Please drive slowly and cautiously, watching carefully for children especially the smaller ones as they are less visible.
  • Students should arrive at school no earlier than 7:00 a.m. If your child is eating breakfast he/she should arrive at school no later than 7:30 a.m. Students are tardy if they arrive to school later than 7:45 and will receive after-school detentions following three straight tardies.
  • Students who are dropped off by car are to be let out as quickly and safely as possible at the east side entrance to the building (by cafeteria). The east side drive is ONE WAY moving from south to north during the day.
  • The main entrance is the bus-loading zone and should not be used for student loading or unloading. Students will be asked to walk around to the east side of building if improperly let off and could be given additional penalties. Also please note how unsafe it is for you to park your car in the main entrance parking lot and then have your child walk across the drive to the main entrance. Just last week we had a parent do this and one of our buses had to come to an emergency stop to avoid hitting the student! Students riding on the bus were also at risk!
  • Pick up at the end of the day should be on the east side of the building. Cars should enter from the south (by the football field, proceed to Fairground Road, pick up students along the walk, and move to the north exiting onto Fairground Road.
  • Students who walk to and from school are requested to walk on established walkways and paths and not cut across grass areas. Never walk between buses.
  • Students wanting to ride a different bus must obtain a BUS PASS from the office by having a note or a phone call from a parent/guardian.
  • Bicycle riders are expected to park their bicycles in the designated area. Recreational riding is not permitted at any time. Bicycles are not allowed on the sidewalk or on the main drive in front of the building.
  • Skateboards, skates, roller blades, and shoe skates are not permitted on school grounds during school time. Motorized and non-motorized scooters and golf carts are not allowed on school grounds.
Thank you for your continuing support in making EIS a safe and productive environment for all.

Principal
