Drop Off and Pick Up

Children’s safety is a primary concern. As you drive in and around the school, please be mindful of the fact that there are children in the area.  

As we continue to teach our children safe practices, it is ultimately our responsibility as adults to be mindful and show precaution. In order to facilitate the pick up and drop off process, and attempt to create the safest possible environment for all, we ask that everyone adhere to the following procedures in the morning and in the afternoon:

  1. If you are dropping off or picking your child up in the front of the school please adhere to the following:

    1. Pull up to the curb in front of the school. 

      1. Do not block bus loading and unloading zones.

    2. Rearrange your seating so that your child can exit on the right.

  2. If you are dropping off or picking up your child in the alley at the back of the school, please ENTER ONLY FROM BIRCH STREET and EXIT ONLY ONTO IMPERIAL HIGHWAY. This procedure will help to keep traffic moving smoothly and again create a safer situation for the children in the area.  

    1. DO NOT park your vehicle and leave. This is a fire lane and parking is prohibited. If you don’t see your child at the gate near room 17, pull through, circle around the block, and re-enter the alley.

    2. Be mindful of buses.

    3. Rearrange seating so that your child can exit to the right and directly into the gate.
