Important Information

Parent Drop Off and Pick Up

  • Morning drop off starts at 7AM. There will not be supervision before 7 AM so please do not drop your student off earlier unless they have arranged to meet with a teacher.
  • While waiting to pick up or drop off your student please be mindful of not blocking entrances to local neighborhoods or parking on their grass/private property. We want everyone to be safe while traveling and waiting.
  • Morning drop-off: Your student should be ready to get out of the car as soon as you enter the gate to the school. You may be directed to pull forward or to pull around the loop. Either way we ask that you pull all the way forward to the cone so we may keep the flow of traffic moving. If you pull around the loop we ask your students exit on the right and move into the grass at the right. In the morning, there will be no parking in the roundabout. This is for drop-off and thru traffic only.
  • The expectation is that students are in first period/homeroom by 725.
  • Afternoon pick up: Please be sure to pull all the way forward and have your student come to you so we may keep the flow of traffic moving.
  • The first few days of school we will be handing out signs for car riders to put in their window. We ask that you put your student’s name, nickname or a word that you and your student agree upon. We will be announcing whatever name or word you have chosen so your child knows to get to the car quickly.
