School Hours and Transportation


Country Heights begins each day with a school-wide morning meeting at 7:30 in the gymClassroom instruction begins promptly at 7:40.  Students who want to eat breakfast should arrive between 7:00 and 7:20 to allow ample time to eat.

Students not eating at school should be in the gym by 7:30! It is important that children are here on time each morning. Students need be in their classroom ready to learn by 7:40, not entering the building at 7:40.  We appreciate our parent support with this matter. 


Students should be dropped off at the side of the building. There will be someone there to receive your child until 7:30. Please pull up to the entrance as far as possible so that we may make this as quick and convenient for everyone.  Doors open at 6:50 a.m.


Side doors are locked at 7:40. If you happen to arrive at or after 7:40, you will need to park and come into the office to sign in your child.


If your child normally rides the bus and will be a car rider, make your child aware of the change and send a note to the teacher.  She will send it to the office for them to issue an office note for the change.  **Any changes from what your child normally does requires a note.**

What if transportation plans change during the day for my child?

Call the school as early as possible. The office is EXTREMELY BUSY from 1:30-2:15.

What if we move or some emergency information changes?

For your child’s safety please inform the school anytime you move, change phone numbers or make any changes to your emergency information sheet.  This includes cell phone numbers, place of employment, etc.

What if I or someone else needs to pick up my child?

Students who must leave during the school day must be signed out through the office by the parent or by someone on the emergency enrollment card on file in the office. Students WILL NOT be released to individuals whose name is not on the emergency card. Please come into the office and sign the student out and the office will call the classroom for that student. You will not be allowed to go to the classroom yourself. Please try to avoid picking your child up during the last fifteen minutes of school as it is a very hectic time and we want your child to receive all important announcements, messages, etc.

What if my child normally rides the bus but today will be going to a friend’s house?

Both children must have a note from the parent/guardian stating that it is allowable for the other child to come to that child’s home.  The secretary will have to issue a pass to each child before they will be allowed on the bus.  Please try to write notes rather than make phone calls. 

How do I pick up my child after school has ended?

Drive to the car loading side of the building and get into the pick up line.   You must display your pick-up tag while in the car rider line to assist personnel helping students.  Car riders will only be dismissed through the car-rider line at 2:20 p.m.  Please DO NOT check your child out through the office at 2:20.   Should your child be an infrequent car rider, send a note to school on the pick-up day.  Students will only be released to persons with an official tag or note from the office.  Thank you for helping keep our students safe.
