Newburgh Elementary Car Dismissal Information

We will utilize the same route to enter the NES car line as we did last year.  Parents are asked to enter 4th Street (by the former State Street Tavern), and to proceed south on Monroe Street.  If you are coming from Jefferson Street, we will also need you to enter Monroe Street from 4th Street.   Monroe Street will lead you directly into the car line at NES, and this change should alleviate SOME of the backup that can occur on State Street.  Parents may also opt to time their arrival to occur between 3:15 – 3:20 PM as well.  The line is almost nonexistent at this time. 

Due to increased safety concerns during car dismissal, we are requiring everyone to stay in their vehicles during this time.  Students must enter vehicles on the curb side only.  This method will allow us to make sure every student boards the correct car, and it will cut down on the large numbers of people using the cross walk directly in front of the school. 

If you walk to school to meet your child, we need you to wait in front of the bicycle rack.  Walking students will meet parents at this location.

Bus service is available to a majority of NES students.  If you become frustrated with the line, you may want to explore this option.  Meeting students as they exit the bus is another option.

We will not release students to meet parked cars off campus.  NES staff members have no way to monitor which cars students board when they leave the school campus.

Student safety is our main priority during dismissal.  Thank you for your cooperation!
