    Text Description of Pick-up/Drop-off Procedures 

    As you read through the directions below, please keep in mind these very important guidelines.

    1.       Students should never have to cross traffic to reach a drop-off/pick-up zone.

    2.       Students must use crosswalks if they are separated from their destination by a lane or more of traffic.

    3.       If a student is required to exit the car on the opposite side from the drop-off/pick-up zone, they must walk in front of the car that they exited from.  They should never walk behind the car they exited from or around another car.

    4.       Drivers must pull as far forward as possible into the pick-up/drop-off zone before stopping for students to be dropped-off or picked-up.  This is vital for smooth traffic flow.  Failure to move as far forward as possible will cause traffic delays and backups.

    5.       Students must not be dropped-off/picked-up in the NO drop-off/pick-up zone (marked in Purple on the map).

    6.       You will have a week to ask questions or get clarification on any of these procedures; please do not hesitate to do so.

    7.       Our student’s safety is our primary focus.
