Arrival to School Procedures
School doors open at 7:15 am at the front and the back for families who need this accommodation. If you do not need this accommodation, we recommend that you do not arrive this early. This time makes for a long wait time for students.
Unloading: Please practice buckling/unbuckling and try to unload 3 cars at a time. Once you are at the front entrance or the back sidewalk you may begin unloading. You do not have to be the first car in order to unload.
Younger Students: Younger students will need your helping getting them out of the car and loaded with backpack, lunch box, etc. and to the safety of the sidewalk before leaving. Staff will not be available to help unload cars.
School doors are open in the front and the back until 8:15 am. At 8:15 am doors are locked. PARENTS MUST BRING STUDENTS IN THIS YEAR AND SIGN THEM IN WITH THE SECRETARY OR NURSE. Students are counted tardy after this time and will need to be brought to the front to be signed in the adult bringing them to school. 5 unexcused tardies = 1 unexcused absence
Breakfast is served from 7:30-8:00. Breakfast is FREE TO ALL but please arrive by 7:45 in order to have time to eat in the cafe.
DO NOT PASS CARS BECAUSE KIDS LOAD ON BOTH SIDES. GCPD/SRO can and will write tickets for this violation.
Please make sure your child and teacher knows your child's dismissal plan (bus, front car rider, or back car rider. Must pick one and not switch unless the office is notified.
Front Riders- This is the front of the school facing the Splash Pad (Bernard Ave) CAR LINE OPENS AT 2:30 PM If you arrive earlier, you are considered a trespasser and will be asked to leave and return. (per Greeneville Police Department/Greeneville City Schools)
Back Riders - This is the back of the school facing the baseball fields. PRE- K DISMISSES AT 2:30 PM. CAR LINE OPENS AT 2:40 PM (NEW!!!!) If you arrive earlier, you are considered a trespasser and will be asked to leave and return. (per Greeneville Police Department/Greeneville City Schools)
Due to traffic issues on Bernard and Barton Ridge, we typically begin loading cars at 3:05 pm.
NEW THIS YEAR: ONLY STUDENTS IN GRADES 2-5 can cross the back parking lot to the parked cars in gravel. Students in K/1 will not be allowed to cross, so the main line will be a better choice for your family.
We will be checking all cars for car tags. If you do not have car tags (new students and kindergarten) they will be available on Aug. 4th at the parent meeting, or in the EV office afterwards. If you need more car tags they can be purchased in the office for $2.00.
If you do not have a car tag, you will be asked to park until we can get clearance from the office based on your driver's license information. THIS PROCEDURE IS TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD. We never want to make a mistake in this area of safety.
All students should be picked up by 3:30 pm. If you need childcare after 3:30 pm, please make arrangements for ESP, EastView's after school care. Ms. Connie can get you the enrollment information. The YMCA also picks up students from EV each afternoon.
Currently, we will not have an after school program at the Rec. We also do not have bus transportation to the Boys and Girls Club.
