School begins promptly at 8:45. Students may be dropped off from 8:30 a.m. until 8:40 a.m. on the back playground once an Oakdale school staff member is present. Students are not to be dropped off until a staff member begins supervising drop-off. Students are to exit the car ONLY on the passenger side once the vehicle has reached the front of the line. Cars will exit the parking lot in one line. Passing other vehicles in the line is strictly prohibited to ensure the safety of everyone. Students will be supervised outside on the playground until school begins when they will be sent to their classrooms. Students who eat breakfast should go immediately to breakfast in order to be in their classrooms on time.
Drop-off ends promptly at 8:40 AM; after that time parents/guardians must park their car in a marked parking spot and escort their child through the parking lot all the way to entrance. Do not drop your child off in the parking lot; students must be escorted through the parking lot to the sidewalk by an adult. Also, please do not park your car in a “no parking area”. After 8:45, students are considered late and must be signed into the office.
