Traffic Safety

Student safety during drop off and pick up starts with you. Please remember to drive slowly, watch for our crossing guard's signal to stop, make sure your child uses the crosswalks, and please avoid U-turns during the school day. We all need to commit to these guidelines to keep every student safe. Consider that each Berney Bulldog could be your child, and it takes all of us to ensure safe trips to and from school. 



Welcome to Berney Elementary

Berney school hours are 8:15 a.m.-3:00 p.m. with the cafeteria opening at 8:00 a.m. for breakfast. For their safety, please do not have students arrive before 8:00 a.m. as there is not adequate supervision outside. Remember~every Wednesday we release at 2:00 p.m.

Please be extra careful traveling to and from school. Walkers, be sure to use the cross walks and side walks.  Student drop off and pick up areas have been expanded to the front of the school and continue around the building to the west side of School Ave. The parking lot west of Berney is an "enter only" lot for staff and visitors. For safety reasons, the bus lane/car exit area is not a student drop off and pick up area.
