LPS Elementary Campus

Drop Off and Pick Up Information


Students can be dropped off in the morning starting at 7:25am. School starts promptly at 7:55am. Students should be in their seats ready to learn at that time, not entering the building so plan accordingly. Doors will close at 7:53. If doors are closed then students will need to enter through the front office.

Dismissal starts at 3:15pm. We expect to have all students picked up by 3:40pm (though we know we have to get the system going as the year starts first).

Safety Is The Highest Priority!

Please follow all instructions given by the staff so that we can keep everyone safe. Drive slowly and be attentive (no cell phones). Also, please be considerate of our neighbors in the montessori school and across the street.

Below you will find a map of the traffic flow that is the same for elementary in the morning for drop-off as well as in the afternoon for pick-up.

We have also made a video to help be as clear as possible. (video has last year's dates, but is still the same)

We utilize an app to help with dismissal called School Dismissal Manager (SDM). Parents will need to have this ready for the first day of school, plus you will receive one car sign to display in your window to help us get your child to the correct car more quickly. Anyone with your car sign will be authorized to pick up your child.

You should get an email from SDM to set up your account/preferences. Car signs were handed out at Meet the Teacher. If you need assistance with either SDM or a car sign, please contact Kelly Renshaw in the elementary office: krenshaw@lpsfrisco.com.

Kindergarten Information

We do allow kinder parents to walk their child to class the first day only. You can simply park and walk in watching carefully for traffic crossings. Please use the drop-off lanes from the 18th onward.

To help kindergarteners learn the dismissal process, we release them at 2:50pm (rather than the normal 3:15pm) from the first day through August 19th. You can pick them up along with any siblings at that time using the regular dismissal system. Then starting on August 22, they will get out at 3:15pm along with the rest of elementary.

Non-kinder families to help with this, please do not line up for dismissal until 3:10 on those days as you will get stuck in the kindergarten traffic and be asked to drive back around


For your student to be a walker in the afternoon (where we allow them to leave the building without using carpool or bus lanes), you need to sign up on the google form. (form will close at noon on 8/16) Students with signed permission will be given a walker tag for their backpack so the staff knows they have permission to do so.

Walkers are dismissed right as school gets out, so you will need to be waiting for them at 3:15pm or they will be waiting outside by the preschool drive through in the weather until you arrive.
