DROP OFF and PICK UP - Keeping Kids Safe

Morning Drop Off and Afternoon Pick Up can be quite hectic. To keep kids and adults safe, please follow our parking lot guidelines.


  • PLAN, PLAN, PLAN - Drop off and pick up can be a time consuming process. Plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time.
  • Drop off and pick up without leaving your car by pulling up to the curb in the parking lot. Please pull as far forward as possible. DO NOT leave your car, this location is only for students to exit and enter the car on their own.
  • Park your car to walk your child to and from the main doors of campus. Please use unmarked parking spots and utilize cross walks. Look for cars moving and actively teach your child parking lot safety. DO NOT park in a location that blocks other vehicles from moving such as behind a parked car.
  • Walking is a great option. Make sure to use cross walks and actively teach your child cross walk safety.
  • Follow the arrows so traffic flows correctly.
  • Be mindful of cones and do not enter areas of the parking lot that are blocked off with cones.
  • DO NOT drop your child off on Rocklin Drive. This is dangerous and unsafe. Have patience and pull into the parking lot for drop off. The safety of your child is worth it.
  • Doors open at 7:30 for students who are purchasing breakfast and 7:45 for the rest of the school. The Kindergarten Yard opens at 7:45. Students need to be at school in time to be in class at 8:00 am - think of school as starting at 7:55 so they have time to line up.
