Morning Drop Off
 

Morning Unloading Procedures

Students are to arrive no earlier than 7:50 a.m. (20 minutes prior to the start of school)

If your student will be eating breakfast at school, please note that breakfast services begin at 7:50 a.m. and students are to remain in the cafeteria seating area until they are finished eating. 

 

Carpool Loading Line

Students must be dropped off only in the designated loading zones. 

  1. Follow the entrance and exit route on the map. (see attachment below)
  2. Parents should cue up in one of the four designated loading lanes.
  3. Students should have all materials (backpack, lunchbox, jacket etc.) ready to exit their vehicle as soon as it stops. 
  4. Be sure to pull all the way up to cone 1 (or closest to the car in front of you) as this will help move traffic along and keep the line from backing up.
An attendant will be on site each morning to assist students with crossing the loading zone.
