Hey SES Families, we know everyone wants their kids to be safe, warm, and dry, but we need to step up our Kiss-n-Go game before we lose the privilege. It’s important that our teachers and staff can enter the parking lot and park quickly so they can get in to the building.  We thought early in the year would be a good time for some quick reminders:
  1. Pull ALL THE WAY UP. Like all the way. To the kindergarten doors. All the way to the light post. Yes, even if your child goes in the front door or the gymnasium doors. And yes, even if your child is there early as a safety or morning helper.
  2. If you (or your kids) aren’t ready to say goodbye that’s cool, we all have those mornings. Please park in the back row of the parking lot while you wait, not in the Kiss-n-Go line. Parking in the KnG creates a back-up and the unsafe situation of cars pulling around you (and possibly…probably…giving you dirty looks).
  3. You shouldn’t have to get out of your car. If you do, to say…unload an instrument, a science project, or a stuffed ostrich for show and tell, you should park in the back row of the parking lot and walk your child (and their ostrich) in.
  4. Your child(ren) should get out on the passenger side of the car (which you have pulled ALL THE WAY UP). They should NEVER EVER get out on the driver’s side. Like, ever.
  5. The KnG is staffed from 8:30-8:45 by some of our lovely teachers. They are there to make sure your darling gets out of the car and safely to the building. However, your child can open the door and exit on their own as quickly and efficiently as possible, and is encouraged to do so. And you are encouraged to feel confident your child will get in the door without actually seeing them walk through it.
  6. Please stay off your phone until you are completely out of the parking lot. It just makes everything easier and safer.
  7. Please maintain a single line through the parking lot. We know it is frustrating and that you are in a hurry (everyone is in a hurry), but safety dictates you not cut through the aisles, especially in the wrong direction.
  8. Speaking of the wrong direction, it’s really not okay to pull onto Pemberton from Copeleigh to sneak into the parking lot. Not only is it unsafe, it’s definitely illegal. But also unsafe; we will start ticketing soon if this continues.
  9. Finally, and we really want to stress this: please pull all. the. way. up.

There was a time when the Kiss and Go line was out on Pemberton and kids walked up from there. **Now we are fortunate to be able to come directly into the parking lot; however, due to the increased issues, we run the risk of losing that privilege. So please, help out the teachers, staff, and your fellow harried drivers and be safe and follow the rules. Oh, and Please pull all the way up. 😘  🚙
