Argonne ES Arrival & Dismissal


Plan ahead and arrive early! The yard opens at 7:30am. All perimeter doors and gates at Argonne are locked from 7:50am – 2:05pm (Wednesdays from 7:50am-12:50pm). During school hours, please ring the bell on the 18th Ave side to enter.

If you are dropping off your student(s) in a car: the white zone on 17th Avenue is designated for Stop, Drop & Go (SDG) every morning. Please pull forward in the SDG lane, have your child seated in the passenger side, ready to exit the car. Do not get out of your car; parent volunteers will take care of getting your child out and onto the yard. Look for the volunteers in the safety vests.
