Morning Drop-Off

In the mornings drop off safety is a big issue. During rush hour everyone in the city is trying to get somewhere else. Please follow these simple rules to help your child get in and out of the building safely. We would like you to keep in mind the following:
  • If you can, please walk your child/children to school.
  • If you choose to drive, try to park within a walking block to Granite St.
  • We ask that you not stop in the middle of the street and let your child out, as this causes traffic tie-ups.
  • Always have your child exit and enter your vehicle safely on the sidewalk side of the car (whether you are parked on the right or left side of Granite Street).
  • For everyone’s safety, please cross Granite Street via the crossing guard at the intersection of Pearl and Granite Streets or the corner of Granite St. and Magazine St.
  • Please DO NOT park in the handicapped spots in front of the building. We have students with special needs being dropped off and need these spots available.
  • Please make sure to go slow and be aware of the second crosswalk on Granite Street located at the corner of Rockingham St. and Granite St.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: NO PARKING in marked bus zones:
    1) Located near main entrance
    2) Located near door #9
Dismissal Procedure/Afternoon Pick-Up

For the safety of all the Morse School students, all doors remain locked until the very end of the day. We ask that all adults picking up their child/children wait outside the building at the indicated dismissal door or in the Main Lobby until 2:25 PM. We have children heading to board school buses and to “in house” afterschool programs, and it becomes very chaotic in the hallways if there are many extra adults standing or walking in the hallways.
