Monday is the start of the 2013-2014 school year, and we are looking forward to all the exciting things to come.

Hartman Elementary, our host for this school year, has provided some procedures for dropping off and picking up your child from school.

A) Parking is available along the north side of 81st Street, just north of the school. There is a sidewalk along the north side of 81st Street. (There is no sidewalk along the south side of the street.) Please use the crosswalk at the intersection of 81st and Oak to get to the school. Additional parking is available along Oak Street, between 80th Terrace and 81st Street.

B) Please do not park in the Hartman staff lot. This lot is not designed for student pickups and dropoffs.

C) There is no parking available along 82nd Street, south of the school. This street is designated for bus pickups and dropoffs only.

Morning drop offs: Hartman volunteers will be available to help with dropoffs the first week of school. Look for the friendly faces in the Hartman hats for assistance.

Afternoon pick ups: At the end of the day, if your child is not enrolled in extended
care, please pick up your child inside the school in the auditorium, located on the north side of the building, up the stairs. If your child is enrolled in the LINC extended day program, you will be met by a LINC representative upon entering the school. The representative will retrieve your child from the school cafeteria.

Please follow these guidelines when taking your child to and from school:
• Always use crosswalks when crossing the street.
• Walk on sidewalks, not through our neighbors’ yards.
• Do not park in front of our neighbors’ driveways.

If you have any questions or concerns, or need to let us know about accessibility issues, please contact the Hartman school office at 816-418-1750 or email Leann Kruse at

Thanks for your cooperation in keeping this process safe and respectful of our surrounding community!
