    Carpool Reminders

    Please help us to maintain safe and smooth arrival and dismissal by adhering to the following carpool procedures:

    • Students should be dropped off in the morning between 8:45 and 9:10. Please do not drop off prior to 8:45, as staff is not yet on duty to supervise and students will not be admitted to the building. Students who arrive after 9:15 must be signed in to school.
    • Students should be picked up between 3:45 and 4:10. Any students picked up after 4:10 will need to be checked out from the front office. 
    • Please do not turn left into or out of the parking lot. Right turns help maintain safety and a smooth flow of traffic!
    • Students should enter and exit their vehicles from the right hand side.
    • Do not park in the fire lanes.
