AL Drop-off/Pick-up Procedures

August 31, 2017

Afton-Lakeland Elementary is striving for a safe and efficient student drop-off and pick-up system for our students and families. We are currently updating our procedures and are beginning implementation of the new changes.  A map of our designated carpool route has been included in this newsletter.

 

All drop-offs must use the carpool lane.  The fire lane, the “no parking” areas and side and front parking lots should not be used to drop-off students.  The side and front parking lots are used for adults that are entering the building and bus space to back in and out. There is not sufficient supervision for students to enter from the parking lots.  

 

If you are parking your vehicle to drop-off or pick-up your child, you must accompany him or her into the building while using the designated crosswalks.  Students will not be allowed to cross traffic in the parking lot unaccompanied.

 

All pick-ups must use the carpool lane.  The fire lane, the “no parking” areas and side and front parking lots are used for busses, and there is not sufficient supervision for additional students.  Students will not be allowed to cross traffic in the parking lot at any time during pick-up.

 

Half Day Pre-School:  Half day pre-school parents are allowed to park along the front yellow curb to pick up their child(ren).

 

Designated handicapped parking spaces may be used at any time, but only by individuals/families with the appropriate permits.

The end of day bus procedures are also changing.  All bus students will be brought to the gym at the end of the day by their teacher. Students will find the picture of their bus, such as the telephone, and will sit on the line underneath the picture until their bus arrives. Once a bus has arrived, the students assigned to that bus will be led out of the school to the bus doorway.  This change will allow for better supervision and organization of students, as well as keep students out of inclement weather.

If you are changing your child’s end of day pick-up schedule, or if you are picking up your child early, please send a note and have your child stop by the office. If you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please contact me at lansfeldtm@stillwaterschools.org or 651-351-6506.  Thank you for your cooperation in helping keep our Afton-Lakeland Elementary families safe!
