Bell Times and Drop Off/Pick-Up
*IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL SAFETY AT HOOVER
ELEMENTARY in 19'-20' School Year*
Hoover Elementary is one of many elementary schools at TPS that was selected to
update safety entrances & procedures this summer. In addition to many new updates in
our building, a new front door access was built, while new cameras and a locking
system was purchased and installed.
Adults and visitors will no longer be able to enter through any side door at any
part of the day. Students may enter through the front doors (7:00am), or the
northwest door (7:05am) by the parking lot. If you would like to accompany your
student into the building you must enter through the front entrance only. This
will ensure that we can monitor all adults that enter our hallways and interact with
Student dismissal procedures will remain the same:
● PreK and Kindergarten will dismiss at North doors(parents wait outside)
● 1st grade Front sidewalk (southwest of school on Darlington)
● 2nd & 3rd grade East sidewalk along Erie
● 4th, 5th, & 6th grade Front sidewalk (west along Darlington)
~Older siblings will meet younger siblings and be dismissed in the younger sibling’s dismissal location~
Morning Drop Off
Doors are open at 7:00 a.m. There are two ways to enter the building each morning: drop off on Darlington Ave. and come in the front door or drop off on the north side in the parking lot. When dropping off in parking lot, please PULL ALL THE WAY down to the east doors. Your child may exit anywhere along the sidewalk. There are adults and safety patrols that will help your child get in the building and where they need to go. Please stay in your vehicle in order to keep the traffic flowing. However, if your child is unprepared to hop out of the car when pulling up to east doors, please take a moment to park and help them gather their belongings. Our goal is to keep cars from backing up on 23rd street, it gets very congested. Always feel free to park in the parking lot and walk your child inside the building.
*Perfect attendance includes on-time arrival, remaining at school for the entire school day, every day, and no early pick-up.
