Pick-up and Drop-off Procedure at AG Campus


Starting 7:45 AM

  • 4th/5th in the back
  • middle/high school in the front

Pick up time:

  • 2:45 PM for 4th and 5th
  • 3:00 PM for middle and high school


  • Please be mindful of the traffic laws; stop at the STOP sign.

  • Make sure to not block the intersection of Princess View Drive and Fontaine Street at any time!

  • For both Drop-off and Pick-up: drive to the back of the school. Elementary parents may park up against the far left side facing the bank in order to walk their students over. The middle and high students should turn and come back to the front parking lot to stop and drop off/pick up along the fence.

  • DO NOT park anywhere in the front, including the parking spots to keep students safe from cars backing out; students should emerge from the cars and head directly onto the campus.

  • Parents who need to come into the office may park in the teacher section behind the classes.

  • If early and the gate is not open, parallel park on Fontaine Street until 7:45 AM. Then walk your child to the gate or turn around and drive in. Do not park in front of the gate as it blocks staff access.

  • For pick-up, remind your students to come out quickly and look for you so you are not holding up traffic while waiting.

  • All middle and high school students are directed to exit the big gate in the courtyard and should be picked up only from the front, not the back.

Jazakum Allahu khairan for your continued support and cooperation.
