Students in 3rd grade will line up and enter through the Mason Avenue doors.
Students in 4th and 5th grades will line up at the lobby doors (new doors) on Heffner Street.
All students will enter the school at 8:20 a.m. In case of inclement weather, students will line up inside the school building.

Afternoons at Smith School
We appreciate your patience and understanding at dismissal time. Please know that safety is our first concern at all times. We recommend that you park and walk up the school to pick up your child. If you cannot park and walk, please pick up your child on Liberty Street in front of the school. We respectfully request that you leave in a timely manner to accommodate other parents.
There is no parking, stopping, or standing on Mason Avenue. Our Smith Bus zone is located on Heffner Street, and this is also a no parking, stopping or standing zone.
Changes in your child's normal dismissal routine:
At all times, we work to ensure the safety of our students. If there is a change in your child's dismissal routine on a given day, please send a written note to the office or contact the school office at (740) 833-1350 prior to 12:00 p.m. If there is no contact with the school regarding the change (ie: no note or phone call), your child will follow their normal dismissal routine.
