🚗 Arrival

Thank you for following our arrival procedures in the morning. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding as we try to fine tune the process to ensure everyone's safety and maintain efficiency. A few things we have noticed:


1. Once your vehicle is in the drop off lane (see image below) your child may exit the vehicle. This would be within the cones in front of the dumpster with direct access to the sidewalk.

2. Once the line moves, please pull as far up as possible so we can fit as many cars into the drop off zone as possible.


We have provided an updated graphic below to help!
