Before and After School


You may not leave your child on school grounds unsupervised, before or after school. Students may not hang out in the halls unsupervised. They may come in during the mornings to put their items down by their classroom but must return to the playground until the morning bell rings.


Upon entering the school parking lot, left-hand turns are not permitted for Blue Oak parents. All incoming traffic will be directed to turn right and park, or drive around the back of the school grounds and drop off in the designated “drop-off zone”. All walk-ins must enter through the main entrance at the front of the school. Side entrances will remain locked at all times.  

The Kindergarten is located at the back right corner of the school building. It is best to park near this area and walk your Kindergartener into the Kindergarten playground.

Children in Grades 1-8 may be dropped off as early as 7:40 AM.

Kindergarteners may be dropped off as early as 8:00 AM

If your child is getting Breakfast, please remember that it is served from 7:40 – 8:10 am only.

Pick-up Procedures

Students should be picked up from school at the close of classes. If your child is not picked up at their classroom within 15 minutes of dismissal, they will be sent to the Great Room to wait for you or dismissed to meet you at your arranged location. If you are going to be later than 15 minutes, please call the front office to let them know. If you are not able to pick up your student within the first 30 minutes, enrollment in after-school care may be a good option or participation in one of our after-school clubs.

Children in Grades 1st – 3rd are met outside their classroom each day.  

This small gesture allows for countless opportunities to support your child but also for you to connect with other parents and your teacher. Of course, continuing this further through the grades is welcome and encouraged. If you cannot meet your little ones inside, please communicate that to your classroom teacher so they can help direct your children to your meeting place.

Kindergartners must be picked up outside their classrooms.  

Children in grades 1st – 4th require written permission from the parent to be able to walk home.
