PRMS Student Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures

Student Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures Thanks to all of you for your cooperation in following our student drop off and pick up procedures. See diagram below.  It is for your child’s safety that we insist all pick-up and drop-off traffic must pull completely around into the circle before the car door is opened. Our staff works to move traffic as efficiently as possible. Cars pulling out of the line before reaching the end of the circle, not only endanger other students, but also send the wrong message to students and other parents who are complying with this safety measure. If you have an emergency that requires you to leave more quickly than the five to ten minutes it takes to move all cars through our circle, we ask that you park and walk to the circle or office to pick up your child. Please do not allow your child to walk down the line and enter your car before reaching the end of the circle. We also ask that you do not stop wherever your child is standing, but pull as far...

MyStop gives parents and students access to live bus GPS info

MyStop is a web-based application available to all Eastern Carver County Schools parents and students that lets them access live bus GPS information. Using a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, parents and students can view the current location of buses on routes and the estimated time of arrival at their neighborhood bus stops. This simple and informative tool gives parents, guardians and students the ability to know approximately where the school bus is on its route. MyStop displays the school bus’s approximate location on a map, as well as the estimated time of arrival (ETA) to a specific student’s bus stop. The school bus’s location is automatically updated every few minutes, and the ETA is recalculated to accommodate any delays due to traffic while the bus is en route. Please note: does not work for after-school activity routes since there are no students assigned to them and no set stops. Learn more about MyStop and how to download the app on the district’s Transportation... Continue reading MyStop gives parents and students access to live bus GPS info

Main Office/Student Services Relocated

In an effort to better  serve our students and families, we have done a little reconfiguration of space in our main office area.  Student attendance, passes for arriving or leaving, parent pick up/drop off, etc. will still be in the front main office.  However, the administrative team and the administrative assistant have moved to the back of the office area into student services.  Students who need or are asked to see an administrator or nurse will now report to student services. Our counselors are also now located in the academic pods in order to be more accessible to students and provide timely support. Guests will continue to follow the same procedures and practices as always. Phone numbers also remain the same. Students will tour the new spaces during our opening week with their advisory.   During the summer office hours, guests will enter the building and please follow the signs around the corner to student services.  We appreciate your patience while we make these moves! We... Continue reading Main Office/Student Services Relocated
