Message from Principal Nelson: 

Student health and safety is a priority at Peabody Elementary. During inclement weather or rainy days, the children will wait inside the building.  Parents must come into the school in the foyer and stand in the designated area behind the ropes. Students will not be called from classrooms until 3:10 P.M. during Rainy Day Dismissal.  Remember, early check-out stops at 2:40 P.M. Students will not be called for check out after 2:40 P.M. Important learning takes place at the end of the day.  Please allow your child to stay at school until 3:15 P.M. each day!

Car rides in grades KK, 1, 2, 3, and 4 will be dismissed through the front entrance of the school.  Pre-K and 5 grade car riders will be dismissed downstairs through the east side door.  Daycare riders and walkers in grades KK-5 will be dismissed through the west door.

We ask all parents to enter through the front (Grades 1-4) or the east side (Grades Pre-k and 5) of the building to pick up the children during inclement weather.  Pre-K parents must come into the Pre-K classroom to sign-out students.

Please do not park or leave your car unattended in front door of the school from 7:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M.  Unfortunately, the police will issue a ticket.  Please read and follow the Parking Sign guidelines around the school. When parking, please do not block our neighbors’ driveways.

Parents are NOT ALLOWED to park in the Faculty Parking Lot or drop-off/pick-up students on the lot at any time due to student safety and limited parking for teachers. Cars found on the Faculty Parking Lot will be asked to move immediately.

Parents, please do not park on the side of Tanglewood Street adjacent to the school on any given day.  The police will ticket vehicles parked there. Tanglewood Street adjacent to the school is RESERVED FOR DAYCARE AND SCHOOL BUSES ONLY!!! Thank you for helping to keep our students safe!
