Car Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

We are excited about our improvements to the pick up and drop off lot. The changes will eliminate crisscrossing traffic, reduce the possibility of wrecks and help keep staff out of traffic.

IMPORTANT:

We have TWO entrances to our back parking lot… Please follow the directions below so that we do not have any collisions. Please come in the North entrance and exit through the South exit as seen on the map.

  • North entrance (by tennis courts): ENTRANCE ONLY
  • South entrance (by the auditorium): EXIT ONLY

ALL CAR RIDER TRAFFIC WILL RUN THE SAME DIRECTION IN THE MORNING AND IN THE AFTERNOON.

We make lines starting at the far left and FACING THE SCHOOL BUILDING. These lines take turns driving through the line and then exit through the EXIT ONLY.


Morning drop-off

ONCE YOUR STUDENTS ARE OUT OF THE VEHICLE AND ON THE SIDEWALK, PLEASE WAIT FOR THE SIGNAL FROM STAFF TO MOVE FORWARD.

Please train and encourage your child to quickly come out of the car, shut the door and step all the way onto the sidewalk.

Please no parking and walking up

I know that many of you enjoy walking your children to the door. Due to heavy traffic and the need for a one-way flow of traffic, please use curb drop off if you are planning to drive your student to school.

Dropping off at the door

Because of the large numbers of students who come in cars, please pull all the way forward. Only a few will be able to drop off right at the door in the morning. We have plenty of staff and we want everyone’s time to be honored to the greatest extent possible. So please pull all the way up behind the car in front of you so that we can use the entire curb area.


Afternoon Pickup

Please enter through the new ENTRANCE ONLY by the tennis courts on the north side of the school. Pull into the line farthest to the left that has space in the large parking lot. As your line pulls around, make sure to have your windshield card with your child’s name on it displayed. If we cannot verify who you are and who you need to pick up in a safe manner, we may have to ask you to wait through the line and then pull around to the front of the building to check out at the front office once the rest of the process is complete.

Once at the curb

Please get out of the vehicle.  Both staff and your child will make eye contact with you before they are allowed to come to the car. Please do not delay the process by remaining in your car.

Once you have your child, drive around the loop and exit in the left turn or right turn lane.


Cell Phones and Car Procedures

For the safety of students and staff, all drivers must be completely off their cell phones while dismissal is in process. We have had staff members hit by cars due to this problem. No one wants anyone else hurt. It could be your child.

There is no call so important that it is worth putting children and adults at risk.
