Parking Lot Procedures
Student Arrival Procedures
Students arriving to school via the BUS will enter through Door #2 (300-Wing), Door #3A (New 6th Grade 900-Wing) and Door #4 (400/500-Wing). Students will be granted permission to disembark the school bus by a staff member no earlier than 8:40 AM.
Students that are being dropped off by CAR should arrive no earlier than 8:30 AM. Car drop-off will occur in front of the building along the long curb. Once on property, cars turn left and stack a single file line through the parking lot making their way patiently toward the concrete sidewalk. We ask that cars pull all the way forward as much as possible and then drop students at the sidewalk alongside the building. Once dropped off at school, students will proceed either to their lockers or to the Commons.
Student Dismissal Procedures
Students who are riding the BUS after school will be directed to a live updated bus map, which displays where their assigned bus route is parked in our new bus lanes.
Individuals picking up students at the end of the day should follow the same procedures as morning drop off above. Once on property, cars turn left and stack a single file line through the parking lot making their way patiently towards the concrete sidewalk along the building. We ask that cars pull all the way forward as much as possible. After picking up students, we ask that traffic needing to travel eastbound toward Route 14 exit at the stop light, while traffic needing to travel westbound use the ELC exit. Please see the hyperlinked map for reference.
Staff will be outside assisting in the flow of traffic should you have questions.
