North Salem has established a new and safer car rider route!
Parents will be now be required to fill out a form to receive a car rider permit. Once the application is complete, parents will receive a car rider tag to place on their rear view mirrors.
There will be a new car rider route, as well. Cars will be directed to keep to the right, as before, but now they will drive around the back of the building in a single-file line. The cars will stop at the yellow line marked near the back entrance of our building. Staff members will be looking for the car rider tag and number at drop-off and pick-up times.
This will add an extra layer of security for our students and expedite the car rider process for all. Applications will be sent home to parents in the welcome back letter. We will be accepting completed forms during the first week of school and it is our hope to have this procedure up and running by the second week of school. All parents must have a car rider permit by September 2, 2014, or they will be required to park in the visitor section and sign in at the office to pick up their child.
Your support, patience, and cooperation will be greatly appreciated as we work to improve this process.
Important upcoming dates:
Wednesday, August 20, 2014: The first day for students in grades 1-7, and 9 as well as Elementary Kindergarten Orientation, Visitation, and Bus Orientation.
Thursday, August 21, 2014: The first day for students in Kindergarten, grade 8, and grades 10-12. This is also the second day for all other students
We are looking forward to a fantastic year this year!

Busing Policy Change
Please remember that kindergarten students must be met by a parent or guardian (or a family appointed adult) at their bus stop each day. If no one is there to meet the kindergarten student, the bus driver will not allow the student to depart from the bus. The student will be taken back to their school for parent or guardian pick-up.
