Parking & Transportation
Northshore Learning Options does not offer bus transportation at this time.
Parking: parking is allowed on the street and in the lot across from the fire station.
Drop-Off times: Classes for NFP and NN begin at 9:00 AM, the earliest families can drop-off their student(s) is 8:40 AM or ten minutes before their first class.
- As we will have limited supervision in the morning, our playground will be closed. Students who arrive between 8:40am-9am are able to congregate in the library as staff members will be assigned to that area for supervision and support. In the library, students are welcome to socialize, relax, read, engage in independent activities/work, etc. Once our 9am bell rings, students will transition to their classes and attendance will be taken.
- Each morning, we will have a greeter just outside of our primary gate to welcome our arriving students as families circle the first parking lot. As drivers pull forward to the designated cone (see map below) students can hop out and head to the library. We ask that vehicles pull forward all the way to ‘star’ on the map for efficiency and to ensure that students are not exiting their vehicle into a busy parking lot. The parking spaces just in front of the gate will be coned off throughout the day, so families will be able to pull as close to the curb as possible
Mid-Day Arrivals: Since we have students who arrive and leave campus at later times, we will have a staff member outside to greet students or see them to their vehicle for pick-up five minutes before each period (For example, if your student’s last class of the day is from 1pm- 1:55pm, a staff member will at be stationed at the pick-up/drop-off point (the star) by 1:50pm)
Late Arrival: It happens! If you’re running late and your student arrives on campus outside of the pick- up/drop-off time, you are welcome to park in the front lot to bring your student inside. Importantly, students need to check in at the front desk so we can mark their arrival time and attendance. Attendance is taken and submitted to the office at the start of each class period, and it’s critical that we know who is on campus at any given time in the event of an emergency. If arriving late, please do not walk your student directly to their class as we need to monitor attendance with our front office folks. Following the check-in at the front desk, we will happily transition your student to their classroom.
Lunch/Recess: Students enrolled in Period 2 or 3 classes may stay for mid-day lunch and recess.
Pick-Up time: promptly at the end of class.
Speed Limit: School traffic zone speed limit is 5 miles per hour.
General Safety reminders:
All visitors must sign in at the office when arriving and wear a visitor lanyard while on campus. It is very important for us to be able to identify who is on campus in the event of an emergency.
Volunteers are required to undergo a background check prior to working in classrooms or as a volunteer on campus. If you have not already done so, you can start here: https://www.nsd.org/get-involved/volunteer/become-a-volunteer
Please be sure your emergency contact lists are updated and accurate. In order for us to release a student to an adult other than the primary parent/guardian, those names need to be listed on a child’s school record. If you need to add names or make changes to your emergency contact information, please contact the front office.
