Drop Off & Pick-Up Procedures

In an effort to keep our children safe, we ask you to follow the school’s procedures for arrival and dismissal at all times.  I thank you in advance for your cooperation in following the outlined procedures.  Your help will ensure that our children arrive and dismiss safely. 


Only the Large Circle will be open for student drop off in the morning.  All cars should pull all the way forward to the top of the circle.  Please make sure your child exits on the curb side only.  Do not exit your vehicle at any time in this lane as it slows the flow of traffic.  Children should be ready to exit the vehicle once you stop at the curb so that we can keep the cars moving.  Students walking should use crosswalks at all times for crossing the lanes.

The Bus Circle will be open for drop off from 8:40 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. only.  No cars will be permitted in this area prior to 8:40 a.m. as it is the bus drop area for bus riders.  Although you are free to use this circle after 8:40 a.m., we strongly encourage that you arrive at school prior to 8:40 a.m.

Do not stop or drop off children in the parking lot, this section is for parking only.


Pick up for dismissal will be in the Large Circle, along the curb, with the center serving as a passing lane only.  Use crosswalks at all times for crossing the lanes.

Do not stop or pick up children in front of the exit gate.  Please pull all the way forward as students will be routed to walk up the circle and meet you.

The Bus Circle is for busses and licensed day care vehicles only.  Bus students may load and unload from the curb only.

Parking Lot Areas Described

Area 1:   The Large Circle area for pick-up and drop-off consists of two traffic lanes.

                Lane 1:  The lane directly against the curb is for picking up and dropping off students onto the curb.  This is the best location to drop and pick up students.

                Lane 2:  The center of the circle is reserved for exiting traffic only.  This lane is to permit parents who have picked up their child to pass those waiting.

Leaving a vehicle in the loading zone is not permitted.  Also, it is illegal to leave young children alone in a car.  We want to insure a constant and continuous flow of traffic and avoid unsafe situations.

To ensure a smooth drop off process please:

                *Be patient           *Leave earlier than planned            

*Say goodbye to your child before you enter the parking lot   

*Have all items in your child’s lap and avoid using the trunk

Area 2:   If this does not work for your family, please park your vehicle in our designated Parking Lot (Area 2) and escort your child through the parking lot.  This area has parking spaces for general use as well as “reserved parking” and handicap parking.  The reserved and handicap area is marked.  At no time should a child be dropped off in the parking lot without parental supervision.  It is not safe for students.

Area 3:  This is the Bus Area.  It is restricted to buses and daycare vehicles during drop-off until 8:40 a.m. and at dismissal.  Once again, leaving a vehicle in the loading zone is not permitted.

Area 4:   It is possible to pick up students at the Back Gate.  The gate will be opened at 2:57 p.m. Parents/adults are not permitted to enter campus.  This is a school exit for students.  Parents are encouraged to park on Fairway or meet their child at the gate.
