Car Rider Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedure......

All cars for student drop-off and pick-up will pull into the Main Office area. This is located on Middle Ave. Please enter the main office area through the 12th street entrance and exit onto Middle Ave. The directional pattern is located in green on the map below. This allows for students to exit in the safest manner from the passenger side of the car and directly onto the school sidewalk. There will be a line so we ask that you be patient. The line moves quickest when everyone follows the right procedure.

If your student is a car rider on the way home, please sign up for a number which will help speed up the dismissal process and will keep the car line moving.

Big picture

Walkers can enter and exit at the 13th Street entrance.

If your child is deemed a walker, please DO NOT park in the front lot by the Main Office for arrival and dismissal. In addition, DO NOT cross your student in front or behind busses on 13th street. We must make every attempt to maintain student safety during car and bus rider arrival and dismissal.
