Parking Lot Procedures

Hope teachers are on duty fifteen minutes at the end of the day to help monitor safe dismissal for students. We do not have supervision after safe dismissal.

Please continue to observe our requirement to stay in your vehicle across the front of the campus. Do not leave your car unattended next to the curb during student arrival and dismissal times. Remember to pull your vehicle forward as space becomes available while waiting at the curb - this allows for additional vehicles to enter the parking lot.

You can make use of the additional on street parking between the school and Chatham. The city has taken out the bike lane in this section. Many parents instruct their children to meet them at the car on Tamarack, Chatham, or side streets from Wilshire. Parents are encouraged to make these arrangements if the parents are already waiting when the children are dismissed. Hope does not want to see children standing on the streets unattended and/or alone waiting for late parents to arrive.

Plan to arrive early as school starts at 8 AM for grades 1-5 and early bird kindergarten students (9:40 AM for Late Owls).
Many families enjoy walking their student(s) to school, so please be safe and cautious as your drive around our safe school zone.

If you plan on driving through our parking lot to drop off your student, remember the following safety rules:
1. Drivers must stay in their vehicle as they pull along side the curb to drop off their student(s).
2. Pull all the way forward to close significant gaps as this allows more cars in from the street.
3. Student drop off is only allowed north of our parking lot crosswalk until school transportation services are done.

Safety first!

Common Core

Your student has new standards to master!   The Common Core State Standards offer schools, teachers, students and parents clear, understandable, and consistent standards in English language arts and mathematics. The CCSS defines the knowledge and skills students should take away from their K-12 schooling to be successfully prepared for postsecondary and career opportunities. 

The Smarter Balanced Practice Tests allow teachers, students, parents, and other interested parties to experience the features of online testing and gain insight into how Smarter Balanced will assess students’ mastery of the Common Core.

We encourage you to take the practice test by following this link: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/pilot-test/
