Car Line Etiquette

  • Please be super attentive. We are moving moving cars and kids.
  • Pull forward as far as possible.

AM Car Line~

  • Have your child ready to exit the car before turning onto Congaree.
  • Plan to arrive no later than 7:30AM. This allows your child time to unpack and be ready for instruction at 7:35AM.
  • Hot breakfast ends at 7:30AM. A bag breakfast is available until 7:40AM

PM Car Line~

  • Please have a car sign visible until your child enters the car.
  • Please hang the car sign from the rearview mirror. A hanger with clips works well.
  • Please have a space ready in your vehicle for your child to sit.
  • If you need a new car sign, please email Ms. Chisholm at
