Morning Procedures

You may drop your student off at 7:45 am and doors will open at 7:50 am. Once students enter the building, they may get breakfast in the cafeteria or report directly to the gym. The halls open at 8:15 am for students to go to 1st block. If your student does not know their first block teacher, we will have alphabetical lists posted in the halls for their reference. We will also have adults in the halls to help direct.

Transportation

Car Pickup and Dropoff

In an effort to alleviate traffic backups on Salem Road and keep the flow of traffic moving more smoothly in our parent drop-off and pickup loop, we have doubled the size of our parent loop. Please review our new drop-off and pickup procedures below, and thanks so much for your patience as we implement our new route.


STUDENT DROP-OFF: Parents will enter the drop-off loop on Salem Road by entering the FOOTBALL STADIUM GATE directly next to the football field. The drop-off loop will lead parents around the back of the school and towards the front of the building (see attached map). Parents will drop their students off when prompted by administration near the crosswalks in front of the school. Students may only be dropped off at this location. Parents will then continue along the parent loop to the FOOTBALL STADIUM GATE and exit the campus onto Salem Road. Parents may not enter the school from HWY 707, and may not enter the school’s Bus/Faculty Entrance Gate or the Student Driver Entrance Gate off Salem Rd. Please use the FOOTBALL STADIUM GATE next to the football field only.


STUDENT PICKUP: Parents will enter the student pickup loop on Salem Road by entering the FOOTBALL STADIUM GATE directly next to the football field. The pickup loop will lead parents around the building and towards the pickup area in the back of the school (see attached map). Parents will pick up their students when prompted by administration in the back of the school. Students may only be picked up at this location. Parents will then continue along the parent loop to the FOOTBALL STADIUM GATE and exit the campus onto Salem Road. Parents may not enter the school from HWY 707, and may not enter the school’s Bus/Faculty Entrance Gate or the Student Driver Entrance Gate off Salem Rd. Please use the FOOTBALL STADIUM GATE next to the football field only.
