Parking Lot Etiquette

Important Drop off & Pick up Reminder

Parents and Students are to refrain from walking through lanes of traffic in the parking lots. It is required and imperative that everyone uses the sidewalks at all times. Given the parking lot configurations, we realize this is sometimes inconvenient. However, safety is our utmost concern. Your cooperation is expected and obligatory. We sincerely thank you for your support.

Drop off Procedures:

**Students are not permitted on campus prior to 8:00 A.M.**

Parents escorting students onto campus:    Limited parking is available in all of our school lots. In addition, parents are strongly encouraged to find parking on Majesty and Honors. Each of them has ample parking on both sides of the street. Parents may walk their kids to the playground and are welcome to wait with them. Please remember, however, that students are not permitted on campus until 8:00 A.M.

Parents dropping off students in the Loading Zone:    Please pull as far forward in the loading zone as possible. Be sure that children exit the vehicle from the passenger side (right) only. Students should have their backpacks close at hand and be ready to exit the vehicle once it has stopped. Students having to retrieve backpacks or other items from the trunk slow the line significantly.

Playground usage before school:    Students are permitted to play on the playground between 8:00-8:13 A.M. When the 2 minute warning bell rings (8:13 A.M. or 8:28 A.M.) students are to walk to their assigned classroom lines. Students will be met at the 8:15 A.M. or 8:30 A.M. bell by their teachers.

Pick Up Procedures:

**All students must be picked up from school within 15 minutes after dismissal.**

Kindergarten Student Pick Up:    Each kindergarten class has a designated area for dismissal at the end of the day. Please check with your child’s teacher for specific dismissal instructions. If students are not picked up within ten minutes of their dismissal time, they will be escorted to the office.

Primary (Grades 1-3) Student Pick Up Procedures:    Parents desirous of meeting their child and walking them to the car are strongly encouraged to park on Majesty. Upon dismissal, parents may meet their students outside the classroom door. Students who are not picked up from outside the classroom doors will be directed to the waiting line at the main parking lot. Parents who plan to pick up their child from the Waiting Line are to do so by driving through the Loading Zone. Primary students not picked up on time will be escorted to the oak tree.

Upper Grade (Grades 4-6) Student Pick Up Procedures:    Parents desirous of meeting their child and walking them to the car are strongly encouraged to park on Honors. Upon dismissal parents may meet their students outside the classroom door. Upper Grade students who are not immediately picked up at the classroom door will be directed to wait for their parents behind the Waiting Line at the Loading Zone or an alternate location pre-arranged with their parents. Teachers under routine circumstances will not escort upper grade students. Parents who plan to pick up their child from the Waiting Line are to do so by driving through the Loading Zone. Upper grade students not picked up on time will be escorted to the oak tree.
