Drop-Off and Arrival Procedures
Murphy Elementary School
Monday, August 19, 2019

In order to ensure a safe arrival for the students, families, and staff of Mary T. Murphy school, we are reminding everyone of the drop-off and arrival procedures.  The “kiss and go” policy will begin the 1st day of school.


  • The building opens at 8:40AM.  

  • Students cannot be dropped off prior to 8:40AM.  

  • If your child is taking the bus and the bus arrives before 8:40AM, the bus driver will not release your child until exactly 8:40AM.  

  • If you drop your child off, they cannot be left alone prior to 8:40AM.  Even if it is only a few minutes before, you must remain with your child. The drop-off lane is for drop-off only.

  • For safety reasons children will be escorted into the building by the assigned staff.  We ask that parents refrain from walking into the building during arrival.   If you have an appointment, please report to the main office.

Drop-Off Lane

  • Please do not park in drop-off lane. We will be placing traffic cones in these spots between 8:15AM-8:40AM.  Once the cones are lifted, parents will be allowed to drop off their children.

  • Staff has been assigned to be “Curbside Greeters.”  The “Curbside Greeters” welcome the children, help children out of the car, and monitor the children on the sidewalk.

  • When dropping off your child, make sure they are in the back seat (on the passenger side if possible) so they can exit the vehicle on the sidewalk.

  • Please adhere to a “kiss and go” policy.  Parents should remain in the car and children need to be able to exit the vehicle independently.  If you child requires your assistance, you must find a parking space.

  • If you would like to walk your child to the main door, you must find a parking space.

SACC students

  • If your child goes to SACC in the morning, you can park in the drop-off lanes until 8:15AM.  Any time after 8:15AM, you have to park and walk your child into the program.

  • All SACC families should enter in the cafeteria door.

Each child’s safety is our priority during this time, and always. We appreciate your patience and cooperation with adhering to the guidelines.  Traffic and arrival will continue to be much smoother and, more importantly, much safer.
