Driving Students to School
Parents who plan on driving their children to school should be aware that staffing limitations prevent the adequate monitoring of students in the building before 8:00 a.m. Students will not be permitted to enter the building until that time. When dropping off your student in the morning please pull as far forward as possible along the sidewalk in the "Kiss and Ride" lane. Your help in minimizing backups is appreciated. If you will be picking up your student at the conclusion of the school day, you may park in the staff parking lot or pull up along the sidewalk in the "Kiss and Ride" lane.
To help ensure that students leave school with the appropriate parent or guardian, passes will be issued to students who have a completed permission form. These forms must be verified with a parent by a school staff member before a pass can be issued to the student. This can be done by bringing the form to school in person for verification, or by mailing or faxing the completed form to the school and then waiting for a school staff member to verify the form’s accuracy by phone.
