• How does carpool work? 


    Please review this map for an overview of the White Oak Carpool Traffic Flow & Procedures


    Morning carpool procedure:

    • The carpool line will form as you exit the traffic circle. Please follow the path that loops to the right and toward the playgrounds behind the building. You will be directed to move into the carpool drop off loop at 8:45 AM.
    • For the safety of all children, please do not drop any child off in the parking lot to walk across or through automobile traffic anywhere in the carpool lane on their own. Instead, please park (in designated spaces only) and walk with your children all the way to the building, or you may wait in the carpool lane. These are the safest options for children.
    • Please park (or wait) in a designated space. All of our parking spaces are marked with lines. It is unsafe when drivers have to pull around or back up around cars that are parked (or are waiting) in the wrong area.
    • Please be courteous to pedestrians. If there are pedestrians waiting to cross the carpool lane, please stop.
    • For the safety of our students, please do not use mobile phones in the carpool lane!
