Pick-Up / Drop-Off Procedures

The safety of all students is a HIGH priority! Therefore, we ask that you observe the following guidelines for car rider pick-up and drop-off.

If your student normally rides a bus, Please keep in mind that emails and phone calls are NOT recommended as there is no guarantee that it will be seen or heard in time for dismissal. As teacher absences are often unknown, substitute’s do not have access to the teacher’s voicemail or email. Therefore, it is best if the student has a signed note to turn in. NO student will be allowed to miss getting on their bus by word of mouth only!

Under NO circumstance should you park on the circle. The circle needs to remain clear of parked vehicles in order to move freely and smoothly. Should you need to come inside the building for any reason, you will need to park in a designated parking space.

Morning Drop-Off:

Please remember that school starts promptly at 9:05am. Due to limited supervision and daily preparations, students MAY NOT enter the building until 8:50am, and must remain in their car until a staff member comes outside to signal that it is time to enter.  Please follow the car-rider line around the circle and through the parking lot to ensure safety at all times.  Please note that students entering the building after 9:05am will be counted tardy.

Afternoon Dismissal (Pick-Up):

Dismissal is at 3:55pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.


All students MUST be picked up promptly at dismissal. Please stay inside your vehicle, in the car rider line with your name card clearly visible to staff. Cars will be directed in groups to the circle and must remain stopped until directed to pull forward by staff. No cars will be permitted to move until all students are safely inside their car and the sidewalk is clear.

If you do not have a car rider tag, you WILL be asked for identification and it will need to be verified by office staff that you are eligible to pick up the student. You must be listed on the emergency card in order for us to release a student to you.

If you need to request a car rider tag, please call the main office or send a note to your child’s teacher.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep all children safe!
