Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

  • Arrival
    Unless students are eating breakfast at Hudson, we ask that they not arrive prior to 7:40 a.m. due to adult supervision. The school day begins promptly at 7:50 so we ask that your student(s) arrive on time. If your child rides a bike to school, we ask that if he/she is in grades K-2 he/she be accompanied by an adult. The bike racks are located on the blacktop by the basketball goals on the west side of the building. Also, students need to use crosswalks when they are available. If your child is a car rider in grades K-3, please drop him/her off in our circle drive. Also, we ask that you wait for the cars in front of you to exit the drive, before leaving. Please do not go around any cars. Kindergarten and first grade students will line up bygrade level at the doors closest to the office. Second and third grade students will line up by the doors closest to the library. If your child is a car rider in grades four or five, please drop them off in our circle drive and then they are to proceed to our back lot near the Hudson Garden OR they can be dropped off from O’Day. If you pull onto O’Day, please do NOT turn around in the driveways of neighbors. We do block our parking lot off during this time to help ensure the safety of our students. They will then line up on the black top near our garden.

    Dismissal will begin at 2:50. Dismissal on early release days will begin at 11:45. These dates can be found on our calendar and I will also list them in upcoming dates in my Weekly Update. Students who are riding bikes will be dismissed from the rear of the building. Students who are walking home will be dismissed from classrooms and will be supervised by staff members as they leave. If you are picking your child up from school and you choose not to be a part of the pick-up line, please come to the atrium located at our parking lot to the east of the main entrance. For atrium pick up, you must enter the parking lot via Kortwright (please do not cut through the pick up line.)If you are picking your child up from school and are part of the pick-up line please enter the front circle of the school using the Kortwright/Hudson entrance. A staff member will be supervising this line and will call for students to be dismissed via the main entrance.
