Drop-off/ Pick-Up

5th Grade

  • 5th Grade student pick up and drop off are at the front door near the flagpole. Parents should drop students along the curb and pull all the way forward to allow the maximum number of parents to let students out at the same time. Please, wait in the line of cars to drop students off. Follow the arrows along the ground to exit the parking lot.
  • DO NOT drop students off in the parking lot area. Please, DO NOT cut down the aisles. This creates unsafe situations for students as well as other drivers.
  • We know that drop off and pick up times can be hectic. Please do everything you can to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
  • Parents will not be allowed to wait in the bus lane or ESB parking lot to pick up or drop off students.

Walkers

The Novi Community School District policy states that if you reside within walking distance of the school your child attends, then your child is expected to walk. One mile or under is considered the "walk zone" for elementary schools.

Care is located in the 5th Grade House. Parents can access this before and after school at the north side of the 5th grade gym. CARE services are  provided  by our Community Education Department. Students can be dropped-off as early as 6:45 a.m. and must be picked-up by 6:00 p.m.  For more information please call 248-675-3400.
