Welcome Back Reminders

Posted by Jennifer Buller on 1/2/2019 7:00:00 AM

Hello Coolidge Corner School Families and Friends,

It was absolutely wonderful to welcome back so many of our students and families this morning during arrival and drop off.  We missed seeing everyone's bright smiles and warm good morning greetings.  We hope that you all had a happy, relaxing, peaceful, and safe start to the New Year.  

Below are some reminders about arrival and dismissal at our school.  Please reach out with any questions.


School Hours

School starts promptly at 8:00 a.m. Mondays- Fridays and ends at 2:30p.m. Mondays - Thursdays and 1:40 p.m. on Fridays.  

School Access

Our doors are locked at all times of the day.  Each main entrance opens and is monitored by a staff member between 7:50a.m.-8:00a.m. for drop-off in the morning.  Students arriving after 8:00a.m. will need to enter through the Harvard Street entrance and sign in as tardy at the computer kiosks located near the main office.  

We welcome all families to arrive and walk in to the building on Wednesday mornings with their students.  Families are invited to drop off students in the cafeteria or main cooridor on the second floor and then stay to gather and connect with each other in the cafeteria until 8:30a.  

Arrival At 345 Harvard Street

  • Students in grades K-8 may be dropped off at one of the designated entrances or through our rolling drop-off lane on Stedman Street and escorted to the building by staff between 7:50-8:00a.m.  Paraprofessionals and additional staff will be in the hallways to monitor and support students transition into the building each day.

  • Supervised drop-off for students wishing to have breakfast begins at 7:30a.m. in the cafeteria.   

  • Families driving to school are encouraged to either park in the Centre St. lots and walk their students to the building or use the rolling drop-off on Stedman Street.  

  • There is NO PARKING in the drop off zone on Stedman Street between 7:30 - 8:15a.m.

  • There is no vehicle access through the front driveway loop between 7:45 - 8:15a and 2:15 - 2:45p.  

  • If your student rides the bus or a van, they will go from the bus/van to the cafeteria and await the first bell at 7:50 to head to class.

Pick-Up at 345 Harvard Street  

There is extremely limited parking around our building.  There are two options for pick-up at the end of the day.

  • Option 1: Meet students at an agreed upon pick-up area outside

  • Option 2: Rolling Pick Up.  Families have received a placard with their student’s name and classroom to place in the front windshield of their vehicle and will need to fill out the Rolling Pick Form for students in K-2 each day by 1:00p.m.  

  • If you plan to pick up students in grades 3-8 using rolling pick up please be sure to communicate that plan with your students prior to dropping off for the day.  

  • A pick up line will form on Stedman Street.  As the vehicle approaches the designated pick up zone on Stedman St, students will be escorted to the vehicle.  Please be sure to have your pick up placard in the windshield of the vehicle picking up your student to help us expedite the process.  

  • There will be NO PARKING on Stedman Street in the pick up zone in the afternoon from 2:00 - 2:45p.m.
