School Gates are Closed During School Hours
For the safety of everyone, especially our students, Shirley Elementary has a "locked Campus" policy. Gates are locked between 8:02 am and 2:30 pm. All students are required to stay within the gated area. Thank you for understanding and supporting the importance of this policy.
When dropping your child off in the morning or picking up your child after school, please follow these routines to eliminate dangerous situations for any students. 1) Drop your child off and pick up on the side of the school. Do not use the other side of the street. 2) Do not double park. 3) Do not ask your child to cross the street to meet you on the other side. 4) Practice courteous behavior. Wait for your turn to pull up to the side of the school. Refrain from honking. 5) Drive slowly and watch out for students. If all parents and guardian follow these routines, unnecessary tragedies will be avoided. Thank you for keeping our students safe.
