Car Pool Procedures

Students walking into school

If you choose to drive your student to and from school rather than use the buses, all parents are required to use are car pool service and follow the drop off and pick up procedures:

Drop Off & Pick-up: During drop-off and pick-up times parents will need to use the entrance off of Laverne Avenue (just east of our school). From Laverne Avenue you will be able to access the parent drop-off lane. Patrols will assist the children in exiting the cars. They will enter through the doors and proceed to their classes. Our pick-up and drop-off lane will only be used between 8:30 – 8:40 a.m. and 3:10 -3:20 p.m. If you arrive after these times, please use the main office entrance off of Highway 5. During morning drop-off time, students will be permitted to enter the building starting at 8:30 a.m. Following this procedure assures the safety of all our students.

Child Leaving School: Students leaving during the school day must be signed out in the office. A note must be sent to the teacher indicating the excused time. Parents who call to have their child dismissed will also be asked to meet their child in the office and sign them out. All parents/guardians/authorized person(s) will be required to show an ID (drivers’ license or passport) before leaving with their child. This procedure helps avoid confusion for the child and ensures their safety. Upon school registration, parents/guardians are asked to designate the name(s) of the person(s) authorized to pick up the child from school during the school day. If someone other than the authorized person(s) will be picking up your child from school, the school must be notified IN WRITING. If an unauthorized person attempts to pick up a child, the child’s parents/guardians will be called. If parents/guardians cannot be reached, the child will stay at school until a proper guardian or authorized person arrives. This policy is designed to protect your child. Also for safety reasons, children will not be allowed to wait outside of the building.
