Pick Up & Drop Off Procedures

Elementary School Parent Drop off and Pick-up Procedures

The school parking lot has one clearly marked entry point, and one exit. All traffic should enter and exit the parking lot accordingly and drop off all students at the front of the building in the designated drop off/pick up zones which are numbered. Pull as far forward as you are able in order to allow as many cars as possible into the lane.  All traffic must flow slowly and in a single file manner to ensure complete student safety. 

As busses arrive in the morning, they will pull into the designated “student drop off / pick up area” and release students as directed by school staff.  Vehicles must be clear of the bus lane when buses are present.

 

At the end of the day, students name will be radioed inside for the student to be brought out to the designated pick up number and helped inside the car. If you need to buckle students in or need extra time, please pull forward out of the pick-up lane. 

Students who ride the bus will walk outside of the building and immediately get on the appropriate bus, monitored by teachers and other staff.  Students who are being picked up by a parent or guardian will be in the designated parent/guardian pick up area of the building accompanied by a teacher until that parent arrives and the teacher releases the student. Any student not picked up by 3:20pm will be placed in aftercare. The family will be contacted and may be charged according to the aftercare fee schedule.

Middle School Parent Drop Off and Pick-up Procedures

  • Follow the signage to use the second entry into the parking lot and line up along the sidewalk if you are dropping off or picking up students (east side of building)

  • Do not use the front driveway to drop off students before 8:15 am or to park in for pick up after 2:30 pm. This is the bus lane. 

  • Students may only enter or exit the car on the sidewalk side as cars are passing on the left side. This may mean climbing over car seats, but it is worth it for the safety factor.

  • Students will not be permitted to cross into the parking lot or out to the main road. If the pickup person is parked in either place, they must walk to the building to get their student.

  • Continue to pull up as far as you can once the car in front of you pulls forward.

  • Students must wait until the car has pulled up as far as possible and has stopped before approaching the car. This allows for more cars to enter the pickup lane. 

  • Students may enter the car if the car has passed, or is in front of, the brick outbuilding, but they may not approach cars that have not reached this point. 

  • Once your student is in your car, you may pull around the car in front of you to exit the parking lot.

  • If you need to enter the building, park in the east lot (next to the parent lane). Do not park in the front driveway during drop off or pick up times.

  • Middle school students are released all together at 3:00 and exit the building to locate their pick up or to board busses. There is staff supervision, however the students are responsible to locate their pickup. 

  • Students are being directed to exit the school building in a timely manner and to pay close attention to the cars in order to speed up the process.

Please be very mindful in the parking lot to ensure the safety of all our students.

Any student not picked up by 3:20pm will be placed in aftercare. The family will be contacted and may be charged according to the aftercare fee schedule. 

 

Students Participating in Enrichment

Hour or other approved after school activities will need a parent/guardian to pick them up by 4:00 pm.  The students will be accompanied and released by teachers. Students not pick up by 4:15pm will be placed in aftercare. The family will be contacted and may be charged according to the aftercare fee schedule. 

After care students will be walked to the elementary building by a staff member.
