Drop Off Procedures
Middle School - From 8:00-8:10 Middle School students can enter at three locations; Middle School Entrance, Elementary School Entrance and Door #6. Staff will be assigned to let the students in the building and direct them to their location. Middle School students that enter through the Elementary doors will be directed to go through the Library and up the stairs to their classroom. 

From 8:11-8:15 Middle School students can still enter through Elementary Entrance but will be marked late. Any Middle School student after 8:15 must enter either Door #6 or Middle School entrance and sign in.

If there are younger siblings, they will come in the building with their older sibling and go the Library until it is time to line up.

Grades 3-4 - from 8:10-8:20 can enter either through grades 3-4 doors, Door #6 or Middle School doors. They will go directly to their respective classrooms for line-up.

Grades K-1-2 will follow their normal procedures for drop-off time, but will be lining up inside upon drop-off.

Also, if you are in line for drop-off or pick-up at the Middle School entrance, please pull all the way up and proceed to the signage before dropping off and picking up. That will create more space for drop-off and pick-up, hopefully helping with the traffic flow.

Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures Review For All
Hello Everyone,
 
Please take the time to review this video NCS Drop Off - Pick Up Lanes which was produced to make the procedures for drop off and pick up very clear.  It is important that we look at this video from time to time to remind us of the procedure. When individuals do not follow these procedures, it always makes it difficult for others. It also can make it unsafe for our Northfield students.
 
Remember, Northfield Community School and The Northfield Police Department have established optional lanes to drop off and pick up students at the school. These "Love Them and Leave Them" lanes make it easy and safe to navigate the congested and busy area right before and after school.
 
You always have the option of parking elsewhere and walking your student or students to the school line up area. In addition, it is always a good option to park further from the school entrance doors and have your student or students walk from your car or to your car.
 
If you choose to use the “Love Them and Leave Them” lanes, then you must follow the procedures found on the video.  There is nothing unusual on the video, it is just good common sense. 
 
Drop Off
 
You never pull in front of the line and drop off your student.  Instead, you would join the line and wait until you arrive at the drop off point before letting your child or children out of the car.  Also, never begin to move your car forward until you are certain your child is safely on the sidewalk, as little toes are near the tires before they step up onto the curb.
 
Pick Up
 
In addition, you would never sit and wait for your child in the "Love Them and Leave Them" Lane if your child is not right there, as this would hold up the line.  We very simply ask you to continue around and get back in to line giving your child or children an opportunity to arrive at the pick up spot.
 
Important to Note
 
Again, none of these procedures are created to make life difficult for anyone.  Instead, they are created to keep our students safe.  It is also important to remember that this is a ten minute issue both in the morning and again in the afternoon.  If we plan ahead and are patient with each other the drop off and pick up process can be a pleasant one.
