Arrival/Dismissal Procedures & Campus Access Times

Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

School starts for Grades K-5 at 8:15am. School entry gates open at 8:00am. Please do not drop your child off at school prior to 8:00am; supervision is not available. At Sundahl, students arriving between 8:00am – 8:12am leave backpacks and lunchboxes at their classroom and proceed directly to the playground where a yard supervisor is stationed. The warning bell will sound at 8:12am, and all students need to be lined up with their teacher at the classroom door by 8:15am. Students who arrive after 8:15am pick up a late slip at the office before proceeding to class. 

Inwood Road, our parking lot, and the bus zone are extremely busy. Please drive slowly and allow extra time to drop off and pick up your child. Let’s work together to keep students safe. Most importantly, do not let your children run into or across the street. We offer a supervised drive through Drop Off and Pick Up in front of the school. Please follow staff directions and circle around if your child is not ready for you at dismissal. Please do not block the mobile home park entrance. Help us be good neighbors.

Kindergarten and Montessori parents, please walk your child through the entry gate closest to the kindergarten building and assist your child to line up at the door. The Kindergarten playground is not open in the morning. Please supervise your child until the teacher opens the door at 8:12am. Please park in the parking lot; do not use the Drop Off / Pick Up lane. Kindergarten students should be picked up from their classroom at Dismissal.

Special Day Class families - staff will meet you at the 1st / 2nd Grade Entrance Gate and escort your child to and from class.

Drop off & pick up at the front of the school:

Back gate safety:

The front of school is supervised during both arrival and dismissal times and is the recommended location for parents to drop off and pick up.

Sundahl has a back gate that allows pedestrian access to campus at the end of Pine Grove Way.  Pine Grove is narrow; there is no safe way for cars to turn around as students arrive or leave on foot. There is also no adult supervision.

If you choose to drop off or pick up at the back gate, please note that there is no parking, no stopping, and no drop-off at the top of Pine Grove Way. See visual and instructions below.
