Harvest Elementary School Morning Drop Off and Afternoon Pick Up
In an effort to keep all of the children safe at Harvest Elementary School we ask that you follow these simple rules when dropping off or picking your child up from school.
Do not park anywhere in the drop-off loop or anywhere in the drive leading into the loop. If you need to enter the building please park in the lot adjacent to the drop-off loop and come into the building.
The morning drop-off is a seven-second drop-off. Do not wait to watch your child enter the building. Traffic will begin to back up into the parking areas. As always, you may choose to park in either lot and walk your child to the front door. If you park in the west lot, please do not walk between school buses, it is not safe, as our drivers cannot see you passing there.
Children MUST exit the car on the passenger side of the car while in the drop-off loop. If your child needs to exit the car on the driver’s side, please park your car in a designated parking place, allow your child to exit the vehicle and walk him/her to the sidewalk. Children may then proceed to the entrance on their own.
Do not leave your car unattended at anytime in the pick-up loop or the drive into and out of the school!
YOU MAY BE TICKETED IF YOUR VEHICLE IS FOUND UNATTENDED.
Students may not walk into the pick-up loop to enter a vehicle. They may only enter the vehicle at the curb and enter on the passenger side of the car.
When parking in either parking lot please walk to the sidewalk and meet your child there. Students may not walk into a parking lot unattended at anytime!
I need your help at the end of the school day. Students are not allowed to be playing on the lawn in front of the building at/after dismissal time. In some instances these are our students who are waiting for an older sibling to transfer from their bus from Heritage School to walk home after school, but in the majority of the cases they are younger siblings who are waiting with their parents for that older sibling to transfer from the Heritage bus to go home. In either case we have an unsafe environment when the children are running around and playing on the lawn/hill in front of the school.
Last spring we had to put a stop to playing on the lawn because it became unsafe when students were choosing to roll down the hill and three of them nearly rolled right into Campus Parkway just being missed by oncoming traffic. So we started this year immediately not allowing students to play on the lawn. I have asked students a number of times to stay off the lawn and wait on the sidewalk with the parents for other siblings to arrive at Harvest but unfortunately not all children are obeying this rule.
Officer Ritchie Coleman of the Pittsfield Police Department witnessed several children on the lawn today and rolling on the hill and playing soccer on the backside of the hill near the road. He also had a driver who stopped and spoke with him because they thought a child was going to fall into the street in front of their vehicle today. Officer Coleman will be assisting me in reminding parents and students that we cannot have students playing on the lawn at anytime. I also had to remind a large number of students today that playing on the lawn is not allowed.
This rule is for the safety of all of our children here at Harvest Elementary and we appreciate your cooperation in helping your children understand that they must remain in your care while waiting for your Heritage student.
A couple of quick reminders for end of the day pick up:
Children are not allowed to walk to cars in the parking lot, you must meet them at the sidewalk and walk your child to the car. Parents are often in too great a hurry and accidents do happen.
The pick up loop is a single loop, DO NOT wait two abreast and have your child walk between cars to your car on the inside lane. This lane at the end of the day is only for cars moving out of the pick up line to exit the parking lot.
DO NOT use the bus loop to pick up your child or park your car, you will be blocked in by the buses.The parking lot on the west end of the building, off of Suncrest drive is one way only. You must make theright into the parking lot and drive around to enter the parking lot, please do not drive straight through intothe lot as we have had several near misses lately. There is a sign clearly identifying ONE WAY.
DO NOT let your children play on the snow piles around Harvest Elementary, particularly around the parking lot areas.
We thank you in helping to keep all of our children safe. Sincerely,
Please make note of the Harvest Telephone Number
If you search for our phone number online you will be given an outdated number.

Meet Mrs. Rosen-Leacher!
I am in my 22st year in education. I have served children, staff, and families as an at-risk instructor, classroom teacher, assessment coordinator, curriculum director, assistant superintendent and in my current role as building principal. I have had many diverse experiences in education throughout my career and outside of the time I spent in the classroom, my greatest joy has been serving as a school principal. Being a school principal allows me to utilize my strengths, particularly working with staff and children so each reaches their highest potential.
Leadership is making the right decisions in the face of difficult challenges always keeping in mind that children are the center of everything we do. It is learning the story of those that I work the most closely with to build relationships that allows us to do the work of improving student achievement.
