After School Pick Up at Pleasant Ridge

Thank you to all the parents and guardians for your patience and cooperation during pick up time at Pleasant Ridge. While it's always busy every afternoon, we are safely dismissing children out of school, into cars, and on their way home. Please note a few reminders:


  • When you are on our school grounds, please do not use your cell phone while in our car pick up line
  • When leaving our South lot, cars cannot turn left onto Sunset Ridge
  • Please do not block our North lot exit when waiting on Sunset Ridge
  • Please be mindful of all our neighbors and avoid blocking their driveways

I appreciate everyone's patience during this busy daily time. Thank you for your cooperation, our goal is to safely dismiss children from school and have you start your afternoons as soon as possible!


Thank you.
