SCHOOL PARKING LOT DROP-OFF AND DISMISSAL
(Entry from Dunning Street – east side of campus)
DROPOFF LANE FOR BEFORE SCHOOL -
School staff and volunteers are curbside at the school entrance in the morning from 7:30 - 8 AM. Parents who wish to use the drop-off lane will enter the lane and pull up to the curb. A school staff member or volunteer will open the car door on the curb side, and assist the child out of the car. Drivers in the drop-off/pick-up lane do not get out of their car. If drivers arrive earlier than 7:30 or later than 8, they use the pass/park lane and park.
For arrivals during the school day, parents will drive into the lot, park and walk their child in. The front row of parking spaces will remain NO PARKING all day, as this lane will remain coned for the drop-off/pick-up lane until 3 PM.
PICKUP LANE FOR AFTER SCHOOL - Noon Dismissal and Regular Times.
After school, students will be brought outside by their teacher, and will wait with their class on the front patio. School staff in the parking lot and at curbside will announce cars as they approach the pick-up lane. We ask that each vehicle using the valet line use a VISOR SIGN, available in the school office. In the pick-up lane, six cars at a time will stop in front of the school buildings, and students will be brought up to the gate to get into their cars. School staff will assist the students, so the drivers do not get out of their cars.
Students with written permission on file to walk home line up and wait by the Teachers Lounge door until they are dismissed by the teacher on duty.
Parents walking up to pick up students wait outside the school gate. For reasons of safety and space, this line is outside the entrance patio. Family names will be called and the child(ren) will be brought out to the gate to meet them. If parents have business in the office, they should park in the lot and walk in, rather than use the pick-up lane.
Teachers will be on duty monitoring dismissal until 3 PM, 12:15PM on noon dismissals, and are not available to converse with parents until after that time.
Any students not picked up at 3 PM (12:15 on a noon dismissal day) will be walked to Extended Day Care, located in Hurley Hall, and their parents can pick them up there when they arrive later. There is a charge for EDC.
