Siblings can be dropped off at the earliest time for which families are eligible. Siblings can be picked up at the latest time for which families are eligible.

The big change for drop off and pick up is that parents will not be able to enter buildings. There will be designated staff available to meet younger students in the parking lot and take them into the classroom. And, in the case of older students, staff will be outside to direct them as needed to the door for their classroom, as students will come and go by grade through the same door every day.

Details about drop off and pick up times:

You will see in the grid above we have made every effort to make drop off and pick up times run as smoothly as possible. We have given windows of time for each division in the morning and afternoon.

We ask that you follow those windows of time carefully. If you choose not to follow the windows of time designated for drop off and pick up for your child(ren), you will be asked to pull over and wait in a designated area decided by the school and stay there until your child(ren)’s designated drop off or pick up time. This will be followed up by a call from the Head of School. This plan for safety for all is only going to work if we all follow the protocols and work together. If there is any confusion on drop off or pick up times, please be in touch with Sue Wells at s.wells@pinecobble.org

If you arrive too early, you will have to pull over, out of the way of other cars, and wait until your child’s window of time. If you arrive too late, you will wait until the end of that current group’s drop off/pick up time to then proceed up the driveway to drop off or pick up your child(ren). 

Each morning every family will need to fill out a COVID Symptom Assessment Form – a google form that will come to your inbox each morning-for every child in their family (please be sure Andrew Ritter a.ritter@pinecobble.org has the correct email in order for you to receive this form each morning). This must be filled out before coming to drop off your child(ren). And, as you come to drop off your child(ren) you will need to show the form that comes to your email after you hit “submit” each day. More details to follow about this.
