Procedures
 
Morning Drop Off
· We would like the students to start getting themselves out of the cars.
· Make sure you drop them off in the cone marked area.
· Make sure there is an adult out supervising your child.
· Remind them to walk behind the yellow line.
· Remind them to all be careful of moving cars.

End of the Day Procedures
· Discuss with your child(ren) whether they will be riding the bus, going to latchkey or parent pickup…
· Contact your child’s teacher regarding any end of the day routine changes.
· Do not wait until last minute to make changes to end of the day arrangements. This causes a lot of confusion and leaves more room for error.
· Student release times:
·  Bus riders 3:45-3:55
·  Parent car pickup 3:45-4:00
·  Parent walk up 3:58-4:00
· Your child’s safety is always our number one concern.
 

Peanut Policy
Classroom
  No peanut or nut foods will be consumed or distributed in any classrooms. This includes daily snacks as well as birthday treat.

Lunchroom
To reduce the risk of exposure to peanut and nut products in the elementary, Grand Blanc Community Schools has decided to remove all obvious peanut and nut products from the elementary menu such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and peanut butter as a condiment.

Students without peanut or nut allergies may consume peanut or nut products for lunch from home but must not eat at a nut free table.


Field Trips
Peanut and nut products are not prohibited, but parents are asked to consider an alternative, nut-free lunch for their child while on a field trip.

Buses
The Grand Blanc Community School District has a policy of no eating or open food on school buses.

The entire policy may be viewed at:  http://board.grandblanc.schoolfusion.us
