Mornings at Cambridgeport

The school building opens at 7:45AM. In the rare case that a bus drops off a student before 7:45AM, we will be sure to provide supervision. Please do not drop your child off at Cambridgeport before 7:45AM. If your child walks to school alone, please be sure they do not arrive before 7:45AM.

Breakfast
The cafeteria opens at 7:45AM for breakfast. Breakfast is over at 8:15AM.

Playground
There is playground supervision for 1 st -5 th graders between 7:45AM and 8:10AM. If a child wants to have breakfast at school, they must do that before playing on the playground.

Dropping off by car
If you would like to walk your child to their classroom (and we do encourage this!), you will need to find a place to park that is not in the bus loading zone in front of the school. If you are sending your child in on their own, you may pull over briefly in the loading zone to unload your child. Please do not leave your car unattended in the bus loading zone.

Classroom doors opening
Classroom doors open at 8:10AM. Parents accompanying their children up to the 6 th floor for JK and Kindergarten may head up the stairs earlier to get a head start (it’s a long journey to the top floor!) or read quietly in the library. Classroom doors are not open until 8:10AM. Parents of children in older grades who wish to go to the classroom should wait in the cafeteria until 8:10AM (unless you have made prior arrangements with the teacher).

What it means to be on time
Children are on time when they are in their
classrooms by 8:25AM. If you’re walking in the main entrance at 8:25AM, your child is late. We hand out late slips, not as a punishment, but as a way to communicate between the classroom and the office that we have accounted for a child. Please support these efforts by stopping in the office for a late pass if you arrive after 8:25AM.
