IMPORTANT CAR PICK-UP SAFETY

PARENTS/CAREGIVERS: There are 2 ways to pick up your student from Car Drop.



  1. Getting in line with the rest of the cars and pulling up to the front of the school at the curb.
  2. Parking your car in the parking lot, use the designated crosswalks and come to the front of the school to walk your student to your car. No student is allowed to go into the parking lot unsupervised or not accompanied by an adult.

Please remember when picking up your student to always follow the car in front of you in the pick-up line. Even though there happens to be a space up ahead of you, please be patient and do not pull out of the line to go ahead as it is an accident waiting to happen. Our para-eds are doing the best they can to keep the line moving. Let's keep everyone safe! Thank you for your patience and attention to this matter.
