Wednesday (late start)
9:02 am-2:42 pm


Car drop-off & pick-up

All personal vehicles will enter into the horseshoe driveway for drop off/pick up. When you drive in, please stay to the left against the curb and drive as far forward as possible, up to the new loading/unloading zone, but do not block the existing crosswalk. 

Also, for students’ safety, please stay in line and do not pass other vehicles to exit unless directed to do so by a staff member.

Car parking

If you need to come into the school at drop-off or pick-up time, please park in the rear lot or on the side of the building so children can safely get into the building. If you are coming into school during the day, please park in the front lot.

Bus pick-up & delivery

Bus transportation is provided by Northfield Public Schools to anyone residing in the Northfield School District.

The bus transportation changes each year, and is usually determined shortly before school starts. Families should receive information and schedules in the mail with morning pick-up and afternoon drop-off times at your child’s specific neighborhood stop.

Behavior on the bus

In order for the ride on the bus to be both safe and pleasant for everyone (including the bus driver), students are expected to follow the bus company rules and behave with the same consideration for others as we expect at school. This means that students are to remain in their seats except when exiting and entering, that they are not to annoy anyone either physically or verbally, and that they are to keep their voices at a conversational level. It also means that they must respond to the bus driver's directions quickly and cooperatively.

Every year school staff talk with the children about appropriate bus behavior and would appreciate the additional support of parents doing the same. If a child is having difficulty on the bus please inform the school office and we will do what we can to correct the situation. High and consistent expectations on the part of the adults for courteous behavior by the children usually result in a low incidence of problems for our students on the bus.
