Early School Drop Off Great News for Essex Junction Families This year getting your children to school just got easier. The Essex Junction elementary schools, Hiawatha, Summit and Fleming will join Albert D. Lawton in offering an early drop off for all students. This will help our community avoid some traffic concerns, sync up all schools to the same arrival time and decrease the burden on our working families. Time: School drop off begins at 7:30 AM Daily Additionally to support this new process the Child Nutrition Program will be OPEN and READY to begin serving BREAKFAST at 7:30 AM daily. This will allow our children additional time to sleep and recharge while parents will no longer have to rush around preparing breakfast.
