• Student Arrival/Drop-Off (7:50 AM-8:10 AM):
    The car drop-off is at the crosswalk in the center of the school parking lot off Jeffries Avenue. Do not enter the bus lane or stop or park alongside the walkway inside the parking lot. If wildflowers are being escorted into the school, please park in a designated parking space in the back row of the parking lot, furthest from the main entrance, to allow parents/caregivers to enter and exit the parking lot without interfering with bus operation or staff arrival. PK Wildflowers are escorted by parents and signed in. Wildflowers should prepare for the security checkpoint by opening their bookbag and/or lunch bag. All wildflowers, parents/caregivers, and visitors will follow the procedures for passing through the security checkpoint. 
     
    For your Wildflower's safety and comfort during inclement weather, Wildflowers should not arrive at school before 7:50 AM. There is no assigned team member to provide supervision for Wildflowers prior to 7:50 AM. 
     
    Late Arrivals: Wildflowers are expected to be in school by 8:10 AM every day when school is in session. Wildflowers arriving after 8:10 AM are tardy and need to sign in at the main office before reporting to class. Attendance, including late arrivals, will be monitored using HB 410 https://education.ohio.gov/getattachment/Topics/Chronic-Absenteeism/House-Bill-410-FAQ.pdf.aspx?lang=en-US. Wildflowers who repeatedly come to school late will be referred to our Student Support Team and may result in the school attendance committee reporting your daughter's school attendance to the Department of Children & Family Services. If there are special circumstances and/or you need support to ensure that your Wildflower arrives on time every day, please contact a school team member.
     
    Cell Phones/Electronic Devices:

    This school year, we will be making our school a phone-free space to improve learning and teaching using a system called Yondr. Yondr has been implemented in over 1,000 schools, including many CMSD schools, to facilitate an engaged learning environment.  


    The Yondr Program utilizes a simple, secure pouch that stores a cell phone/electronic device. During arrival, wildflowers turn their cell phone/electronic device off and secure their cell phone/electronic device in a personally assigned Yondr Pouch. Wildflowers will maintain possession of their cell phones/electronic devices and will not use them until their Yondr Pouches are opened at the end of the school day. Girls are responsible for keeping their Yondr Pouch in good working condition.  If a wildflower needs to contact her parent/caregiver during school hours (7:50 AM-3:10 PM), she should ask the supervising team member to use a landline. If a parent/caregiver needs to contact their Wildflower during school hours (7:50 AM-3:10 PM), they should call the main office at 216.838.8950 to leave a message or request a return phone call.
     
    Breakfast (7:50 AM-8:10 AM):
    Wildflowers who intend to eat breakfast at school should arrive at school between 7:50-8:05 AM to allow time to eat breakfast before classes start at 8:10 AM. Wildflowers in grades K-4 eat breakfast and remain in the cafeteria for the duration of breakfast. Wildflowers in grades 5-8 will eat in the cafeteria and report to the gym after eating breakfast. Food and/or drink are not permitted in the gym.  
     
    Dismissal (3:10 PM):
    Bus riders will be dismissed at the arch (Grades K-4) and main entrance (Grades 5-8). Daycare transport and walkers will be dismissed at the side exit on Jeffries Avenue. Car riders will be dismissed at the cafeteria exit on Connecticut Avenue. All wildflowers must report to their assigned dismissal location.
     
    Early Pick-up (before 3:10 PM):
    All early pick-ups and/or changes to dismissal plans must be completed by 2:15 PM and must be communicated to the main office at 216.838.8950. To ensure a safe dismissal for all wildflowers, parents/caregivers without a previously scheduled meeting will not be permitted inside the building between 2:15 PM-3:15 PM. If you arrive after 2:15 PM to pick up your Wildflower early, you will need to wait until your Wildflower arrives at her dismissal location. Attendance, including early pick-ups, will be monitored using HB 410, https://education.ohio.gov/getattachment/Topics/Chronic-Absenteeism/House-Bill-410-FAQ.pdf.aspx?lang=en-US. Wildflowers who are repeatedly released for early pick-up will be referred to our Student Support Team and may result in a referral to the Department of Children & Family Services. If there are special circumstances or you need support to ensure that your Wildflower is able to remain at school the entire day, please contact a school team member. 
     
    Late Pick-Up (after 3:20 PM)
    After 3:20 PM, parents/caregivers must enter the building to sign their Wildflower out in the main office. Please be aware that the school day for students and staff ends at 3:10 PM. All daycare transportation and/or persons picking up wildflowers should be at school no later than 3:10 PM. Parents/caregivers that repeatedly arrive for pick up after 3:10 PM may receive a warning letter and/or be reported to the Department of Children & Family Services. If there are special circumstances or you need support to ensure that your Wildflower is picked up on time, please contact a school team member.
