Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

Dear OES Parents and Families, 

We want to ensure a safe and efficient arrival and dismissal each day. Please read the following carefully to help make the process as safe and efficient as possible. We will not have parent pick-up again this year.  Curbside will begin once buses are dismissed. The school doors will open at 9:00 a.m. for student arrival and dismissal will begin at 3:53 p.m. We strongly discourage early pick-ups unless it is for an appointment or important event. Early pick-ups cause a disruption to classrooms and causes children to miss instructional time.


  • No cars in the upper lot from 8:55 am until 9:15 am. Buses will be arriving during this time. 
  • Students riding in cars can be dropped off in the lower lot from 9:00 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. Please do not drop off any student before 9:00 a.m. as there is no adult supervision until the bell rings.
  • Bus Riders and Walkers will enter through the outside gym door.
  • Car riders will enter through the front doors.
  • The tardy bell will ring at 9:15 a.m.
  • Students may go get breakfast before they go to class.




  • No cars in the upper lot from 3:45 pm until 4:30 pm except for the curbside line.
  • Walkers should only be students who live in the walk zone and cannot receive bus transportation.
  • A walker has two options: 
    • A parent stands outside of the back cafeteria door with a nameplate that has a cheetah stamp and the student is called out as the staff member sees the nameplate
    • The parent gives the school written permission for the child to cross at the 4-way stop sign or walk down the hill by the football field home without an adult.
  • If you do not live in the walk zone and would like for your child to begin riding the bus, please call the school and we will help facilitate that process.
  • Curbside will begin when buses have dismissed. 
  • Anyone picking up a student during curbside should have a name plate provided by the school visible on the dashboard. (Please see map below for curbside traffic pattern) If you need a new or replacement curbside tag please contact Mr. Johnson at
