Korte Elementary Calendar

Car Riders & Walkers:  PLEASE NOTE VERY HELPFUL AND IMPORTANT PROCEDURAL CHANGES IN OUR CAR RIDER DROP OFF AND END OF THE DAY DISMISSAL PROCESS.   In an effort to help reduce the traffic on Hardy Avenue in our car rider line, we have reversed the direction of the line (see map above).  All car rider traffic will enter the north drive on the hill from Hardy, going up the hill (stay to the right is this is two way traffic on the hill drive).  Once you enter the parking lot area, it will become two lane (same/one direction) traffic towards the school to pick up or drop off children.  We will use the northeast gym door as in the past.  Cars will continue two lane until you exit the campus near the front circle drive onto Hardy.  PLEASE NOTE:  The front circle drive on Hardy will be closed from 3:30-4:15 daily to avoid traffic and safety concerns.  All students who leave campus in a car will be expected to be picked up in the car rider lane only.  Only those students who are walkers and actually walk off campus will be considered walkers.  If you need to pick up a student between 3:30-4:15 you will need to use the car rider direction and park in the north lot to enter the building to check out a student if needed during those times.


Our Vision Statement:

We are a school and community working together, encouraging all students to reach their full potential.
