Drop Off & Pick Up

 

School starts at 8:45am. Please ensure your student is on time. For a good morning drop-off:

  • Students attending BASA may be dropped off as early as 7:30am. Please see our BASA policies for more details.

  • We ask that students line up outside the door assigned to their class by 8:40am when the first bell rings.

  • Students will be escorted into the building by their teachers when the bell rings at 8:45.

  • Students who are running late should be dropped of at the main doors (door 2 on Paulina).

  • Parents are not permitted to accompany students into the building, unless the student is in pre-k. If you have school business, please sign in at the front desk and then go directly to the main office.

  • If you drive, do not double park and exit your vehicle. Do not park in Ravenswood faculty spots. Watch for crossing guards. Do not yell at other parents or stop in the road to talk to someone. Obey all rules of the road. Put your phone down - our students’ lives depend on it.

School ends at 3:45pm. To make pick up go smoothly:

  • Please make sure students know and are prepared for their after school plans.

  • Students attending BASA or Columbia College classes will stay in school. Younger students will be picked up from their classroom by a counselor. Older students are responsible for getting to programming on their own.

  • Students who aren’t enrolled in extracurriculars will be escorted to the school doors by their teachers. Teachers will wait with students until a designated parent or guardian appears.

  • Parents are not permitted to pick up students directly from their classroom.

  • If you need to pick up your student early, for any reason, you must go to the main office and fill out an early dismissal form.

  • If you drive, do not double park and exit your vehicle. Do not do not park in Ravenswood faculty spots. Watch for crossing guards. Do not yell at other parents or stop in the road to talk to someone. Obey all rules of the road. Put your phone down - our students’ lives depend on it.


Drop off can be hectic, especially during the first few weeks of school! Please follow our procedures to make sure all students remain safe and comfortable.

We encourage parents and students to stay and mingle after pickup - as long as you’re not blocking the road or another car. Please be safe at all times.
