Link to Parent Pick-Up Form for Northrop Students

As you may be aware, we have a large number of families who choose to pick up their children at the end of every school day.  If you will be picking up your child(ren) each day, please complete a Parent Pick-Up Form for each child that attends Northrop.  Also, please read and review the following procedure with your child to ensure a safe and smooth transition for all students.  Thank you! 

  • Students who are picked up by a parent/guardian or alternate adult will be picked up in the gym between 3:40-3:50 PM each day.
  • Parents will enter Northrop School at Door 13 (on the 43rd Street side of the building).  Door 13 will be opened by 3:35 PM to allow parents to wait in the hallway outside of the gym.
  • Students will be divided into color groups alphabetically by the first letter of their last name as follows: A-E (Red), F-J (Orange), K-O (Yellow), P-T (Green), and U-Z (Blue).  This will allow parents with more than one child to pick up all of their children in one group.
  • For the first few days of school we will support student's understanding of the color groups by giving them a dot sticker for the group they will sit with in the gym.
  • Students will be asked to sit with their color group even if they see their parent/guardian or alternate adult when they enter the gym.  This will support a smooth transition for all students.
  • There will be a staff member assigned to each color group.  
  • Parents, please form a line by the staff member assigned to the color section where your child is waiting.
  • Be prepared to show an identification card with a photo until our staff members get the chance to know you and your family.
  • Families that would like to socialize after-school are invited to go outside on the playground or outside of Door 13.  This will help us protect our wood gym floors from water, sand, and salt, and allow after-school programs to start in the gym as soon as possible.
  • Students and parents are also asked to refrain from sitting on or climbing on the stage.

We greatly appreciate your help to make Parent Pick-up a safe and smooth process.  Reminder, please submit a Parent Pick-Up Form for each Northrop student that will be picked up from Northrop school each day.
