  • Getting to and from School.
    • Driving to school? Please review and follow Cherry Crest’s Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures.  *Note:  in general “staff only” parking spaces have been removed, so families can park in the center parking lot OR the outer ring.
    • Riding the bus?  Find your bus route
    • Make sure your child knows how they are getting home: bus, pickup, after care, etc.
  • Lunch
    • Students can bring their own lunch or buy at school (even on the first day)
    • If your child is buying lunch, money can be added to their lunch account with cash/check in the main office or pay online through BSD Nutrition Services.
  • Read our Arrival and Dismissal Procedures so you and your child know what to do when they get to school.
  • School Supplies.
    • If you didn’t drop supplies off at the Teacher Meet and Greet, have your child bring their supplies in a bag or box labeled with their name and teacher.
    • School Supplies List
