Parent Drop-off/Pick-up Instructions

HES Arrival/Dismissal Procedures 2023-2024

Early Morning Drop Off, 7:15-7:30am

HES is happy to be able to offer early drop off for working families! From 7:15-7:30am, students may enter the school at Door 2 and wait in the cafeteria until the bell rings at 7:35am.

The Door 2 entrance is staffed and the children are supervised in the cafeteria.


Early Drop Off ends at 7:30am, and vehicles will wait for our regular student drop off to begin at 7:35am at Door 3 (see details below).  

Arrivals: Buses are unloaded at 7:35 a.m. when the bell rings and proper supervision is available. Early morning drop-off is from 7:15 to 7:30 a.m. at Door 2, where students enter the building and are supervised in the cafeteria. Caregiver dropoff will be from 7:35 to 7:45 a.m at Door 3 ONLY this year (K, Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3 and Grade 4). After 7:45 a.m., students must be brought to the Main Office Door 1 by an adult and checked in to school with the front office staff. Students entering the building after 7:45 a.m. are tardy. 

Dismissal: Beginning at 2:05 p.m., students are dismissed to the caregiver pickup doors as their car arrives or called to their  buses from their classrooms. Walkers report to the Office and then are dismissed through Door 1. Students who are attending after-school programs will be dismissed to these locations  or picked up at their classroom by program staff.

Caregiver Pick-Up and Drop-Off Placards: Each family receives a dashboard placard for Door 3. Placards must be used to make this process most efficient. Please place the placard on your passenger side dashboard for a smooth transition pick-up. 

PickUp Patrol

Please enter all dismissal/transportation changes (either one-time or recurring) into PickUp Patrol. PickUp Patrol is our online system for parents to communicate dismissal plan changes to the school. Parents with an existing account will be able to continue to make changes as they have in the past. Parents of kindergarteners and new students will receive an email at the beginning of the school year with PickUp Patrol login instructions. Dismissal changes can be entered from a computer or smart phone at any time until 12:45 p.m. on the day of the changes (12 p.m. on Early Release Wednesdays). Changes can be made days, weeks, or even months in advance. However, please note that if you enter a change and the dismissal plans are canceled, you must remember to delete the change from PickUp Patrol or your student will be given the PickUp Patrol dismissal directions. After 12:45 p.m. (12 p.m. on Early Release Wednesdays), changes will not be accepted except in the case of an unexpected emergency. Such changes can be made via phone directly to the Main Office. As the end of the school day is a busy time, please plan accordingly and limit these exceptions to emergencies only to ensure the safety of all students.
