SES Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Fri, 01/11/2019 - 3:39pm

Ensuring the safety and well being of students at Swansfield is our number one priority.  This starts at the beginning of the day when students are dropped off and picked up daily in a safe and organized manner.   We are reminding everyone to follow the pick-up and drop-off procedures.  Failure to do so can create unsafe conditions for our students, parents, and staff.

Student Arrival

8:25 am: Staff will be outside to supervise students. NO students should arrive before 8:25 am. (This does not apply to students who take part in early morning special programs.)

8:30 am: Students may enter the building.

8:45 am: The late bell rings and the student day begins. 

Car Loop Arrival

  • Car riders can be dropped off at the car loop which is located on the side of the school (Rock Coast Road) from 8:20 am - 8:45 am. We will have staff along the car loop sidewalk to monitor student arrival. 
  • During morning arrival, the bus loop is reserved for buses and student drop-off services only, between 8:20 am and 8:45 am.  Cars cannot enter the bus loop during this time.  Once all the buses have arrived, cars will be permitted to enter the bus loop.
  • Please DO NOT  stop your vehicle along Cedar Lane or Rock Coast Road during morning drop off or dismissal. This is extremely dangerous and impedes the flow of traffic for buses and the community. 

Directions from Cedar Lane:

1. Turn right onto Little Patuxent Parkway.

2. Turn right on Billingsgate Row.

3. Turn left onto Swansfield Road.

4. Turn right onto Rock Coast Road.

5. Turn right into the car loop.

3:05 pm: Instruction Ends/ Dismissal begins for our Kindergarten and 1st Grade Students.

3:10 pm Dismissal begins for 2nd - 5th Grade Walkers, Car Riders and After-Care & Bus Riders


Car Loop Dismissal

  • Parents picking up their child by car should use the car loop located on Rock Coast Road.
  • There is NO PARKING allowed on Rock Coast Road.
  • The car loop is one way. Under no circumstances may a parent back into the exit of the car loop.


Always Use the Crosswalk

It is extremely important, for the safety our staff and families, that everyone use the crosswalk or bridge when crossing the street. It is important that we model safe practices for our students.
