Drive Lane Tips

  • If you are walking up, please take your car card with you. It is your ticket to your kiddos.
  • Please arrive during the oldest child’s pick up time
  • Please make sure your car-card is prominently displayed on the right side of the window.
  • Please make sure you arrive at your student’s designated time. Any pick up person who arrives before their child’s designated time will be asked to exit the line and loop around.
  • If there are changes to dismissal, please let the front office know. They will communicate the change with teachers.
  • We cannot buckle students in, if you would like to help your student with the car buckle, please park and walk up with your car card to collect your student.
  • Please remain in the vehicle, and we will help the kids get in the car.
