Parking Lot Procedures for Pick Up and Drop Off

Our goal is to move vehicles through the procedure quickly, but not at the expense of safety. It will take several minutes to get in and out of our parking lot, and it all moves more quickly when everyone follows the procedures. Please remember that at any time, and especially before and after school, there may be children in the parking lot. Drive slowly and without distractions. Please use the drop off lane. Children may enter and exit vehicles at the curb where there is a double red lane. Please have them use the passenger side of the car only. There will be no drop-off or pick-up from the driving lane. If you choose to park in the parking lot and walk your children, cross only at the crosswalks. Please model proper behavior for our children. Due to the presence of buses entering and exiting, we cannot allow students to be dropped-off or picked-up in the bus/faculty parking area. Thank you for your patience and courtesy in what can easily become a frustrating task.
