Key things to know

  • The Hollybrook entrance to the school will be blocked off with cones.
  • If you need to speak to someone in the office or a teacher, you will be required to park and go into the school. Please note that most teachers will be on duty helping with loading kids in cars and traffic control.
  • Please do not block any of the entrances or exits.
  • If you have a student in PK3 – 5th grade you will enter off of Ridgewood. You will turn right into the parking lot and circle around the grassy knoll to the front parking lot of the school.
  • If you have a 1st – 5th grader, you will stop at the first crosswalk (third grade hallway) and your student(s) will be escorted and loaded into your car.
  • If you have a PK3 – Kindergartner you will stop at the second crosswalk (PK hallway) and your children will be escorted and loaded into your car.
  • If you have students in both of these groups, your students will be grouped together and picked up at the second crosswalk (PK hallway).
  • If you do not have to pick up students in 6th – 12th grades you will turn left and exit onto Ridgewood in Lane A.
  • If you have students in grades 6th – 12th in addition to your younger ones, you will drive straight, past the gym, and turn right to pick your student up in front of the cafeteria.
  • If you have a student(s) in grades 6th – 12th only, your student(s) will be picked up at the Parish Center (cafeteria). You will enter off of Ridgewood, Lane C, the last entrance of the church (this is also where you will exit). You will stop at the front of the cafeteria where your student will walk out. You will drive around the church and exit at the far exit onto Ridgewood (Lane C).
