To ensure the safety of our students and make drop off and pick up as efficient as possible, we ask that you follow the carpool procedures and map below:

  • Cars entering the circle drive may use the inside or outside lanes for drop off. The middle lane is used for pull-out to exit the circle driveway only. (YELLOW arrows on map)

  • Pull to the farthest marked point (cone) of the driveway so traffic can move in a more efficient manner

  • Have students exit the car on the curb side only. If they are being dropped off using the outside lane, have your student walk in front of your car and proceed to the crosswalk. A teacher will be stationed to walk students across the crosswalk.

  • Teachers and Safety Patrol students will be stationed along the circle driveway to help students exit the car safely.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Cell phone usage during school drop off or pick up times is illegal and dangerous. No cell phones when driving in the carpool.
  • If you do not have a car visor sign, you may be required to park and enter the front office to provide proof of identification before picking up students. We want to ensure kids are released only to those on the emergency card. If you will have someone else picking up, please have them use your car visor sign or have them park and walk to pick up your child (notify the teacher in advance of who will be retrieving your child/children).
  • Parents will not be allowed to pick up their kids from the office between 2:45 and 3:00 PM – due to the dismissal process already being in action. If you need to pick your child up early for an appointment, please plan to get them prior to 2:45 PM.
  • Students walking home are not allowed to loiter on the school grounds. They are to walk home immediately after dismissal.

PLEASE OBSERVE ALL SCHOOL ZONE AND TRAFFIC SIGNS
