Transportation Changes Please notify the school office of any changes in your child’s transportation before 2:30, so we can make sure the teacher and your child are notified. Please do not leave voice messages or emails about transportation changes. You need to speak directly to a secretary when making changes to procedures. We cannot accept information as to pick up and bus changes from students; we need adult confirmation. *Parents must park their cars in legal parking spots if they want to get out of their cars and come into the building. (No parking in bus area or fire lane).
*All students must have a written note or a phone call to the secretary when their after school plans are different from their usual routine.
Family Transportation We have an area of the south parking lot designated as Student Drop-off and Pickup. Please keep in mind, this area can get congested and will require patience, manners, and safety precautions. While waiting, please pull vehicle forward as far as you can, avoiding large gaps. The buses must be able to turn into the front loading area and pull out at the other end. No passing/driving in other lane to get out of congestion.
The following procedures are for the safety of your children: 
OBEY THE RULES OF THE ROAD: Please drive slowly and safely. Do not pass other cars. This increases the risk of accidents.
SPEED LIMIT: Please obey the speed limit signs.
CROSSWALKS: Please model the use of crosswalks. This is the SAFEST place for all of us to cross, especially when there is not a crossing guard outside. When there is a crossing guard, cross only when the crossing guard is helping you.
SCHOOL PERSONNEL: Please respect the School Personnel that are out at the crosswalks and parking lot. They care for you and your children, and want to keep everyone safe.
CELL PHONES: It is illegal to use cell phones while driving. Please refrain from using cell phones while dropping off or picking up children.
PARKING LOT IN FRONT OF SCHOOL: This area is for Buses only between the hours of 9:00 – 9:45 a.m. and 3:00 – 3:50 p.m. Walking between buses is prohibited. 
SOUTH PARKING LOT (side of school): This is where the parent drop off/pick up area is located. See procedures below. Please do not leave your car in the drop off/pick up area. 
You also have the option to park in a parking spot, get out of your vehicle and meet your child as they come from the building. Please check with staff before heading to your vehicle. Please use the crosswalks.
   ***Children must be with an adult at all times.
Morning Parent Drop-off Procedure
Children may be dropped off between 9:05 a.m. and 9:20 a.m. A staff member is on duty to assist your child. If you arrive late, or do not see a staff member, please park and escort your child into the building. If late for the start of school please check in at office to get slip to enter class late.
When waiting in line on the road to turn into parent pick up area please pull forward, leaving no spaces between vehicles. As the buses arrive they must be able to turn into front loading area and exit at the other end.
As you arrive at the drop off area, please pull as far forward as you can. This helps with traffic congestion.
Drive up to the school staff person who will then let your child out on the right side of the car. For your child’s safety, please do not let them out on the left side. A staff member will assist your child exiting your vehicle.
Do not pass other cars when waiting to pick up or drop off. This increases the risk of accidents.
Afternoon Parent Pick-up Procedure
Children may be picked up at approximately 3:23 p.m. – 3:40 p.m. 
The pick-up area is designated with “No Parking Loading Only” signs.
Do not pass other cars when picking up. This increases the risk of accidents.
Pick up your children on time. If you are late, your child is taken to the office & you will be called.
Feel free to park your car instead of driving up. This often helps the process run smoother.
