Please note: There is NO supervision before 8:15 a.m. so please DO NOT drop off your student prior to that time.  We realize there are exceptions to accommodate early morning appointments so an arrangement with the office MUST be made in advance.

Drop-Off Procedures:

Drop-off time: 8:15-8:30. Please do not drop off before 8:15. Students who arrive after 8:35 must check in at the office for a tardy slip before continuing to their classrooms. Students with younger siblings should be dropped off and picked up at the younger sibling's drop-off point.
  • Kindergarten - West Playground Gate. For entry only. Parents must sign students in.
  • First, Second and Rainbow Rooms - Alley Gate. For safety, enter the alley from Lincoln Street, drop your child off, turn right on Marchant but do not use Elm to return to Lincoln.
  • Third, Fourth and Fifth Grades - West Playground Gate. (Do not use parking lot gate)
  • Middle School - Elm Street West Playground Gate.
Parents will be on duty by 8:15 a.m. every morning on the east and west playgrounds; students are NOT to be dropped off before 8:15 a.m. Students who arrive after 8:35 a.m. MUST check in with the office to pick up a TARDY SLIP before attending class.


Please note: There is NO supervision after school and parents are expected to be prompt in picking their students up or make plans to enroll them in after school activities (Afterschool programs on campus are NOT offered by Linscott and typically have a fee and contract/waiver involved) 

*** It is the parent's responsibility to check the school calendar for holidays, 1/2 days, conferences and field trip return times.***

Younger siblings will join older siblings at their pick-up area. Please remember that for the safety of students we ask that you do not park in the pick-up area or the alley way.

Walking Home: If students are walking home, please complete a "Walking Home Notice" in the office. Students are to leave promptly after school.

Late Pickups: Students who are not picked up by 3:00 (2:45 dismissal) or 3:15 (3:00 dismissal) will wait at the East Playground lunch area. The Office Manager will call their parents.

Detailed After-School Instructions:

Please read these instructions for details about our after-school procedures and suggestions for if you can't pick up your child immediately after school.

We appreciate that the majority of parents pick their children up promptly after school. We also realize that on occasion due to unexpected delays parents are unavoidably late in picking up their children. Last year we had an unusually high number of parents who regularly were late for pick up. The supervision of those students presented a challenge for staff. We have made a few changes to the procedures for late pick up this year and want to notify you of the differences. Also we would like to remind parents about the need for prompt pick-up. Students are very stressed by the need to wait for parents or caregivers so please make every effort to get here on time or to make alternative arrangements for your child.

Students are expected to be picked up promptly after school. If students are not picked up within 15 minutes of dismissal the following procedures will be followed:

  • Students whose parents are on campus will be expected to be with their parents and be supervised by them.
  • Students who need to call parents to determine the time of pick up will inform the after-school supervisor and the information will be relayed to the office. The office personnel will contact the parents.
  • Students will wait for their parents on the east playground in the covered lunch area. They will be supervised while they wait.
  • Late pick-up will be treated as a tardy and will be recorded on the attendance records.
  • Students who remain to complete community service must make the arrangements in advance. If your student remains after school without making the proper arrangements we will contact you and ask you to pick them up immediately.

Suggestions for those who find it difficult to pick up their children by 3:15:

  • Make arrangement with another parent, caregiver or a relative to pick up your child(ren).
  • Enroll your students in one of the many Afterschool Programs or homework club.
  • If your child is old enough give permission for them to walk to the public library and join the homework and tutoring provided there.
  • For grades 6th-8th take advantage of Youth N.O.W. (off campus) for homework assistance
