Car Rider Information


***All parents must be patient and cordial to one

another in the car rider line.***


We need your help to make our car rider arrival and dismissal more effective.
  1. We do not unload car riders in the morning until 7:45 am. There is no need to get in line before 7:40 am. Getting in line early only creates a backup on Brownlee Road.
  2. We do not load cars in the afternoon, until 2:45 pm. There is no need to get in line before 2:40 pm. Getting in line early only creates a backup on Brownlee Road.
  3. Do not drop students off in the front parking lot or on the street. All students (except Pre-K) must be dropped off in the car rider lane.
