Student Pick-Up & Drop-Off Protocol

Parent/Guardian Drop-Off & Pick-Up  

In an effort to facilitate the safest and smoothest transition for our students who are traveling to and from school in parent/guardian vehicles at the beginning and end of the day, we ask that you please adhere to the following safety precautions.

  • We will continue to use the same traffic flow for drop-off and pick-up as last year. 
  • We ask that parents/guardians remain in their vehicles during the drop-off and pick-up process. 
  • Staff will be stationed at the two rear entrances to support student’s transition into the building. 
  • Please use extreme caution when pulling around other vehicles during this process. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
  • If you are walking your child in, please park in the parking lot and cross over to the sidewalk by using the crosswalk.
  • Students arriving after 8:50 AM, will be considered tardy and must report to the office with an adult before proceeding to class.
  • Please remain in your vehicle while your children are unloading and loading and please avoid allowing them in and out on the passenger side of your vehicle.
