Carline: Arrival

Thank you so much for getting your students to school on time and for cooperating with us by adhering to the following drop-off guidelines:



  • Car riders may enter the building at 8:10.
  • Do not park in the front or side parking lots to avoid the carline. Families who purchased "First in Line" spots at the auction are the only ones who can park by the K-1 playground to unload students.
  • Please pull as far forward as possible before unloading your students. We have staff members outside in the mornings directing traffic so we can efficiently and effectively unload cars. Mrs. Bradley calculated that we are able to unload approximately 35 students every 2 minutes when the line is running smoothly. That is amazing!
  • Per state law, phones should not be in use while driving unless they are hands-free.

Carline: Dismissal

We are loading TONS of vehicles in record time during dismissal thanks to your help. Please continue to help us by following these guidelines:


  • Dismissal begins at 3:40.
  • While on campus, drive slowly, carefully and observe your surroundings
  • Two lanes form at the edge of the playground. Take advantage of the outside lane. 80% of our car riders live on the other side of Shute Lane.
  • If you are in the outside lane, do not turn around in the bus entrance to avoid driving toward Cages Bend Road. You are blocking buses, and you are breaking the rules.
  • Between 3:30 and 3:45 a class of students is dismissed from the back of the building. If your child is not dismissed from the back of the building, do not enter the parking area at the back. Please be courteous to the vehicles entering or leaving the back parking area in the afternoons. If you see a vehicle traveling in an unusual direction, but a staff member has waved them through, there is a reason.
