Pick-Up and Drop-Off Procedures

  • We need your help to keep the school and your children safe. EVERY child's safety is important to us. It remains our highest priority to ensure that students enter and exit cars in a safe and organized way. We ask everyone to correctly follow our pick-up and drop-off procedures. Please note that upon entry into the school parking lot, the right lane is reserved for buses, and the left lane is for automobile traffic.


    General precautions

    • Be your child's best example. Please be courteous and follow all safety guidelines at all times.
    • No arrivals prior to 8:40 a.m. No supervision is provided prior to that time.
    • Follow all directions from school safety personnel. They can see potential problems you may not.
    • Students are to be picked up promptly at dismissal at 3:40 p.m. There is no supervision after school hours.
    • Please drive slowly and watch for children!


    Drop-off and pick-Up procedures
