  • Pick Up and Drop Off Procedures

    Drop Off Procedures

    drop and go All students being dropped off by car can arrive to school no earlier than 8:45 am. When dropping off through the loop, please follow the signs to pull forward all the way before dropping off your child. Please practice with your child to independently buckle and unbuckle in order to get out of the car. We have a staff supervising drop off beginning at the 8:45 am time and will assist your child in getting into school. If you choose to walk your child in, please park in the lot or on Game Farm Road. DO NOT park in the loop. If you walk your child in, please say your good byes in the vestibule waiting area. After this week we want all students to walk to their classroom with their friends and school staff. 

    Pick Up Procedures

    All families should have a name plate with their student's name on it. Please display the name plate in your car window or show the school staff the card. All students will be called out one at a time. Please continue to pull forward by following the signs. Please practice with your child to independently buckle and unbuckle in order to get in the car. We ask that all students load their vehicle curb side as other cars pull out behind other cars. We only allow students to load their vehicles between the two signed areas. Please DO NOT wave your child to your car if you are not between those areas. Just a reminder Fridays are the most congested day of pick up, please be very patient as we want to keep our students safe. 

    Overall, our drop off and pick up line runs pretty smoothly. Our families are what it makes it run the best! We know you love your kiddos, but save your long hellos and good byes for your driveway, not the school driveway.
