~Traffic Pattern~

BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL TRAFFIC PATTERN:

Safety is always a top priority and this includes drop off and pick up at the school.

Please remember to follow our school Drop off and Pick up procedures listed below:

  • School supervision does not begin until 8:40 am and students SHOULD NOT be on campus until 8:40 am. Likewise, students should head directly home after school as we do not have after school supervision at 3:35pm, 2:35 pm on Wednesdays.

PICK UP and DROP OFF:

  • This year, students will be dropped off in the front and the back of the school depending on their grade.
    • Kindergarten, 2nd, 4th, and 5th will be dropped off at the back drive (entrance on 31st street)
    • 1st & 3rd will be dropped off in the front drive (entrance on Obsidian Ave).
    • If you have multiple students please pick one drop off and pick up location for your children (suggestion: have the older students walk to the younger students).

PLEASE FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES BELOW:

    • Students being dropped off by vehicle will use front and back drive through the lane only.
    • Students will enter school to start their day in two locations: Main front doors & Back middle entrance into the gym.
    • At the end of the school day students will exit their classrooms’ exterior doors. 
    • Please continue to pull all the way forward when picking up or dropping off your children. 
    • If dropping off in the front and back drives please remain in your car. A duty staff will be there to help your child get to their classroom or in the morning to breakfast.
  • NEVER LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE UNATTENDED IN THE DROP OFF AND PICK UP LANE.
  • If you want to walk your child(ren) to their classroom please park in the East parking lot. No cars are allowed to park in the front lot without a disability placard.
