Students who walk will be directed toward Ann Street, where there will be a crossing guard. Students who live on the west side of town who are walking home will be guided to the Amity Street crossing guard.

Parents who are picking up their children in their vehicles will be asked to line up on Glenn Street, which will be one-way for cars during dismissal.

The assigned staff member will release them to their grown up.

The foundation of education in the Steel Valley School District begins with our elementary schools. Barrett and Park Elementary each serve Steel Valley students in kindergarten through fourth grade. Our engaging curriculum ensures that students develop the knowledge and habits that will help them grasp complex concepts as they get older.

Along with learning the fundamentals of reading, writing, math and science, Barrett elementary students explore their creativity and the world around them through hands-on experiences. Our elementary art classes encourage students to discover their creative eye; Music classes teach basic instrumentation and vocal technique, with two student performances every year; The Black History Month Living Interactive
Museum guides students and families through exhibits featuring culturally significant artifacts and historical information, student and alumni performances, and living figures played by Steel Valley High School students and alumni.

Like every school in the district, Barrett Elementary offers a wide range of supports and resources in order to meet all of the needs of our students. We are continously working to ensure
every student has the resources they need in order to thrive.
