Supervision starts at 7:30 a.m. Children should not be dropped off before 7:30 by parents and/or bus drivers. We need your cooperation with this important safety matter. There is one drop off area- the drive thru/drop off in the back of the modular building (enter at 17th Ave.). Under no circumstances should children be dropped off in the parking lots. We need everyone's cooperation with this matter.
West 16th Ave. is used as a bus drop off zone in the morning. Please do not park your vehicles in this area, since they will block the drive-thru. Also, vehicles may not be left unattended in the parent drop off/pick up area behind the modular building.
Children are expected to arrive on time daily. All students will line up inside the main building. 
Parking in the morning is available in the large corner parking lot (West 76th Street and 16th Ave.) Parent spaces have been painted yellow in the large lot. We realize that parking is very limited, so please be patient and understanding. The small parking lot behind the modular two-story building is for staff only.

Children must be picked up promptly at dismissal, which is 1:50 p.m. for K and 1, and 3:05 p.m. for 2nd-5th. Please note that all students are released at 1:50 p.m. on Wednesdays

PLE is a mandatory uniform school. So far, all the kids look great in their uniforms. Please note that children may not wear sandals to school for their own safety. We appreciate your cooperation. If you need information about uniforms, call the main office at (305) 823-6970.

  • ATTENDANCE - Children should remain in school all day unless they become ill, in which case the parents will be notified. As per School Board Policy, students must be present for a minimum of two hours to be marked present for the school day. This policy will be strictly enforced. Early dismissals should only take place in case of a family emergency. Please make all appointments for your kids after school hours, whenever possible. This year, we will monitor early dismissals and report extreme cases to the district office.
  • PARKING - Parking in the morning is available in the large corner parking lot (West 76th Street and 16th Ave.) Parent spaces have been painted yellow in the large lot.
