Ocean Crest Elementary School
Welcome to Ocean Crest Elementary School
In partnership with parents and community, Ocean Crest is dedicated to developing knowledge, skills, and character in a safe, nurturing environment. Maintaining high expectations, we are committed to ensuring these outcomes.
Our code of conduct is based on three key rules: Be safe. Be respectful. Be responsible.
All parents dropping-off students in front of the school, on the side streets, or in the parking areas are reminded to use extra caution while in the area. Students will enter the building from their designated entry doors.
Kindergarten enters at the South Doors;
1st and 2nd at the Main Entry;
3rd and 4th at the North Doors
Doors open at 8 am and remain open until the tardy bell at 8:25 am. A staff member will greet your child and conduct a “visual screen” for illness including asking your child how he/she is feeling. Upon entry to the building, students use hand sanitizer and pick up a Grab and Go breakfast to be consumed in their classroom. (***Breakfast and lunch are provided free of charge for the 2020-21 school year!***) If your child arrives after the tardy bell, he/she will need to come in through the Main Entry and check in with the office.
All parents picking up students in front of the school, on the side streets, or in the parking areas are reminded to use extra caution while in the area. Children may run into the street or from between vehicles and buses without warning. As a measure of security, parents who pick up students at dismissal will do so in the gym. (***UPDATE: During such time as our building is unable to accommodate guests/visitors due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, dismissal will be handled using our bus lane AFTER buses have left for the day. If you arrive prior to 3:13 pm, please park in our lot and we will connect you with your child.***) Teachers will check students off as they report to their parents. Any students not picked up in a timely manner will be delivered to the office to call home. If you need to take your child off the bus, please do not ask your students to get off the bus once they have loaded. Report to the office, where we will call for your student to meet you. Please do not park in the back parking area. It is reserved for teachers and those in possession of handicapped placards.
