Drop-off and Pick-up: Parking and Traffic Flows

The first day of school is nearly here! We are excited and hope you and your children are also.  Our students’ safety is our highest priority. We have adopted new procedures for student drop-off and pick-up. Please review, especially the enclosed maps that show traffic patterns and parking details.

Our school day begins at 8:00 am.  Unless your child is enrolled in our before school program (7:00 am – 7:45 am), please do not drop off your child before 7:45 am.  Parents dropping off students before 7:45 a.m. should park in the main parking lot and check their child into the Community Room for before school care.

For on-time arrivals, please enter our facility from the Johnson Street entrance. Proceed to the main parking lot behind the school building. You may either 1) park in the main parking lot and walk your child into school, or 2) curb-side drop-off at the door.  We will have staff or a parent volunteer at the door greeting children. Please see the attached map for an illustration of traffic flow patters, the main parking lot, and location of morning drop-off. Ingress and Egress 2011

IMPORTANT! The main parking lot will be unavailable between 8:30 and 2:00 every day. This area will be chained off to provide a safe and secure play area for our students.

Therefore, for late arrivals and early pick-ups, please enter the facility off of 187th Ave, park in the small western parking lot, and walk your child into the school. Please see the attached map for an illustration. Late Entry, Early Pick Up, deliveries 2011

We expect that many parents will want to walk their child into school the first day! We will have a host of volunteers directing parents into the school, parking lot, etc. for the entire first week of school while we all get into the new routine. Please, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to post a comment here or email Stacy Inman.

Our school day ends at 3:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and 2:15 on Friday.  In order to keep our students secure, parents or a preauthorized adult must pick up their child at the child’s classroom between 2:50 and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 2:15 p.m. on Fridays.  Please park in the main parking lot for on time pick ups.

See you all on Tuesday!
