Car Rider Tips

We are a school with 100% car riders and it is extremly important that everyone follows the safety rules to ensure we can keep everyone safe. We will always do our best to unload as many cars as possible before school begins, however, we only have a limited amount of time do so. WIth your help, we can continue to make the experience as efficient as possible.

  • Students may enter the building from the car rider lane from 8:15am-8:35am. After that time, please park and walk your scholar into the building.
  • Our staff will open as many doors as possible, but you dont need to wait for an adult to help if your child is able to manage the doors on their own.
  • Have children ready to get out of the car as soon as it stops. Coach them to have their belongings ready to grab quickly as they exit.
  • Remember to always turn LEFT when exiting the driveway. Please do not enter the exit when arriving to the building. This can be very dangerous.
