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. While 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.
Buses will drop students off at the front of the building.
Doors open at 8:15 am and remain open until the tardy bell at 8:25 am. The playground will have an adult on duty from 8:00am until the bell rings at 8:15am to let the students inside.
Students will be able to enter through the main doors or the doors closest to the playground. A staff member will greet your child and conduct a “visual screen” for illness, including asking your child how they are feeling. Upon entry to the building, students can use hand sanitizer and head to their classroom. If your child arrives after the tardy bell, they will need to come in through the Main Entry and check in with the office.
District breakfast will be back in the main cafeteria across the street from the middle school. The doors will open at 7:50am. If your child rides a bus to school, the buses will stop at the district cafeteria for your student to get off IF they want to eat breakfast. If they do not want breakfast, they will remain on the bus and be taken to Ocean Crest. We will have one of our adults in the cafeteria with our students. When breakfast is finished, the students will all get on a bus (with our adult helper) and be transported to Ocean Crest before the 8:25am tardy bell.
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. 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.
