Please read for changes to our drop off/pick up procedures. We hope this will help parents have more time to help their younger children and help the traffic flow a bit better. If your youngest child is in preschool your preschooler and siblings will be dropped off/picked up at the west end doors. This means you will go behind the school to the gravel parking lot and park to let all your AJES children enter the double doors at the end of the building. Parents will walk with their children to the end doors. If your youngest child is in kindergarten then your family will all be dropped off/picked up at the cafeteria doors behind the school. You will travel behind the school and loop around at the double black doors that enter into the cafeteria. At this location parents will not have to exit their vehicle unless your child needs assistance buckling once they get to the car. The rest of the students that are in first through fourth grade will be dropped off at the east end by the playground in the a.m. and picked up at the front doors in the p.m. Parents will remain in their vehicle and the students will be directed to your vehicle. Please have students exit and enter your vehicle on the passenger side. Please be patient as everyone gets used to the new routines! Give yourself plenty of time in the morning so you won’t feel rushed. Drop off starts at 7 a.m. and will end at 7:50 a.m. We will be making codes again during the first couple weeks to give out to parents to hang on their rear view mirror for parent pick up. Parent pick up will begin as soon as the buses leave, which should be by 2:55 p.m. and continue until 3:05 p.m. Please follow these procedures with your 1st-4th grade students even on days your PK student is home on Fridays and prior to the PK/K first day. Thanks everyone for working this out with us! This will be our best year!
UPDATED Bus Schedules are now available. You can find them located on the TCS App under Documents and Transportation or from the TCS Website. https://5il.co/xxwv
