Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up

We ask that parents who drop off or pick up their child from school to use the south parking lot (closest to Ortman Lane) .  The north parking lot is used for bus traffic from 7:55-8:25 and 2:30-3:00).  Follow  the flow of traffic through the circle drive.  You may drop off students anywhere along the sidewalk, but we ask parents to try to pull up to the orange cone (located ~2/3 of the way around the circle) so that we can get as many students as possible exiting cars at the same time.  If you can have kisses and hugs taken care of at home, and backpacks packed prior to leaving your driveway it will make the drop-off experience better for everyone!  Should you need additional time, pull past the orange cone and turn on your hazard lights so other parents know they can pull past your vehicle.  These tips should keep traffic flowing smoothly!  Please do not create a second lane for drop-offs or pick-up: this creates a dangerous situation where students are walking between vehicles that may not be expecting a student crossing from that direction.    In the afternoons, you may wait in the pick-up line or park in a parking space, but we ask that parents not leave vehicles parked in the pickup line or parked behind regular parking spaces.  Students will be directed to pick up spots by the teachers monitoring the pick up location.  Please pull forward as directed and we’ll send your student to your car!  If you are attending a school event, please remember that buses will need the curb area in the north lot beginning at 2:30 so please plan to have your car moved before the drivers box you in.
