Arrival & Dismissal

On any given day, Capital Prep manages the flow of over 500 children & parents, and 40 employees. The traffic concerns at Capital Prep are a choreographed daily event. We make every effort to manage traffic in a way that takes all groups into consideration. To aid in this effort, below are general guidelines for dropping off and picking up students.

ARRIVALS: All students are to arrive at school between 7:07 a.m. –  7:30 a.m.  Any student arriving after 7:30 a.m.  must sign in at the main office. Lower school students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Car Drop Off
Car riders must use the Main Entrance. Please do not park and walk in with your student, unless they are younger than first grade.

Students who walk to school must use the Main Entrance.

School Bus
Students who ride the school bus to school must use the Gym Lobby Entrance.

DISMISSALS: The school day ends at 2:50 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. and  12:25 p.m. on Wednesday. Lower school students are dismissed 5 minutes early.

Car Pick Up
Students will be on the front lawn for their parent/guardian to pick up . Please park your car on Main St. to keep the school bus lane clear on Ely St.

All walkers will be dismissed at 2:50 p.m. out of the Main Entrance on Main Street. However, all lower school students must be escorted home by an adult or high school student.

School Bus
Staff and/or bus monitors will escort all lower school students to the bus.
All lower school students are to ride in the front of the bus.
Upper school students will exit the building through the Gym Lobby and head to their buses.

Please know that all of us at Capital Prep; administration, staff, custodians, and bus drivers, take seriously the responsibility of our students’ safety. Your full cooperation of this policy, patience, and dedication
will make these transitional periods operate smoothly.
