Drop-Off and Dismissal

This is a reminder of the drop-off and pick up procedures:

If you wish to stay in your car and drop off, please follow the guidelines below:

Morning drop off:

  • Y5, Kindergarten, and 1st grade students will enter the building through the main canopied entrance (M1). Parents may park in the parking lot and walk their students to the door. Please do not drop off students along the sidewalk.
  • 2nd and 3rd grade students will enter the building through the west doors (M13) in the front of the building.
  • 4th and 5th grade students will enter the building through the east doors (M12) in the front of the building.
  • Middle school students may be dropped off at the middle school or in the front drop-off lanes.

The following list is a brief overview of Holly Academy's dismissal procedures.

  • The lane closest to the building will be designated for Y5/K families only.
  • Please turn off your cell phone.
  • Please stay in your lane.
  • Staff will direct you to move forward or exit the parking lot.
  • Be sure your sign (student's last name, grade, and teacher) is clearly displayed.
  • Turn on your right blinker when your car is loaded.
  • Students may not exit vehicles once they have loaded.

We are working on fixing the potholes in the parking lot. Please be understanding and try to avoid potholes when dropping off or picking up.
