Back to School Reminders

On Thursday, Aug. 19, please send your child to school with extra child-sized masks and a filled water bottle. We encourage your child to take the school bus as traffic can be heavy during pick up and drop off times and can back up onto surrounding roads. If you drive your child to/from school, please observe the following procedures.



Riding the bus? Please re-check Unified Classroom for possible bus stop changes. Here are directions on how to find the UC information. Also, please familiarize yourself with busing procedures.

Directions for Driving to/from School

Please follow these map procedures when dropping off and picking up students.

Drop Off Procedures

AM Kindergarten, First, and Second-Grade student drop off is 7:55-8:10 a.m. Drop off is located in the EAST parking lot. Enter the lot from Reliance Lane. Pull forward to the drop off lane. Staff will be wearing bright colored vests and will hand signal you when to pull up in line. When you arrive at the drop off line, put your car into park, a staff member will open the door, your child should be able to independently exit the car, and walk to the sidewalk.


Staff members will then hand-signal for you to proceed forward to exit. Please stay in a line, practice patience, and DO NOT PASS other cars. The line will then exit on to Reliance making a right hand turn. Parents of children who are not independent with seat belts, or are in a car seat, will need to park legally and escort your child to the sidewalk.

Pick Up Procedures

Students will be picked up in the Pick Up Drop Off lane beginning at 2:35 p.m. Parents should enter Sprague’s East parking lot from Reliance Lane and pull up to the pick up area. Staff will be wearing brightly colored vests. Have your child’s name, grade, and teacher written on a piece of paper on the passenger side window so staff can easily identify who is being picked up.


Dismissal will start at 2:35 PM. We ask that students who have siblings, stand in line with their siblings so that they can be loaded into their cars together. Please put your car in park.


A staff member will open the door and load your child(ren) into the car. Staff members will then hand-signal for you to proceed forward to exit.


Please stay in a line, practice patience, and DO NOT PASS other cars. The line will then exit on to Reliance making a right hand turn. Parents of children that are not independent with seat belts, or are in a car seat, will need to park legally and pick up their child from the parking lot.

Walking and Biking

Children are allowed to bike and walk to/from school if they live in the neighborhood. Students who are being picked up and walking or bike riding, will also be picked up on the sidewalk adjacent to the east parking lot. Please walk your bike while on school property.
