Carpool Procedures

Morning Drop-Off (7:30-8:15 am)
Enter from the north side of Marquez Avenue or Ida Way.  The Drop-Off lane is marked off with orange cones.  Please pull all the way forward towards the lower yard gate.  Do not exit your car. A school staff member will make every effort to help your child/children exit your vehicle.  Kiss your child/children goodbye and scoot them out the door.  Please have your child/children ready to exit – shoes tied and backpacks in hand.   Do not drop-off until after the staff parking lot driveway.

Afternoon Pick-Up: 

TK/Kindergarten:  When school ends, the TK/Kindergarten teachers will walk their children to the TK/Kindergarten Pick-Up area in front of the school.  Parents must park and exit their vehicle to get their child.


Pick-Up Lane (1st-5th grade):  The north side of Marquez Avenue will be dedicated to the Pick-Up lane for the first 20 minutes immediately after school ends – no parking, stopping or getting out of your car during that time.  The Pick-Up lane starts at the lower yard entrance.  As the line forms, please keep the crosswalk and staff parking lot driveway clear.  When the school bell rings, the children will walk down to the courtyard near the lunch tables in the cafeteria. One traffic aide on the curb will radio ahead the names of the cars in line.  Another traffic aide will announce the names using a bullhorn.  Please load your child as quickly as possible.  Normal pick-up resumes 20 minutes after school ends. 

Download the Vehicle Placard and place it on your front dash. This will assist the traffic aides to quickly summon your child.


The Later the Better:  The first set of kids will be called within five minutes after the bell rings.  If your child can’t get down to the waiting area quickly, you may want to get in the Pick-Up lane 10 or 15 minutes after the bell rings. 

 

Park and Walk: Parents who park in the streets and walk in may meet their child/children in the cafeteria area or down on the lower yard.  Have your child wait in the same place every day to avoid confusion. 
Others Picking Up Your Child:  If someone else picks up your child, please review this plan with them.

Walking Home:  Children who walk home won’t be impacted. They will simply inform their teacher or staff member that they are walking home.

Street Parking:
There is plenty of parking on the surrounding streets.  We are fortunate to have so many all-day parking options.  Please be extremely courteous and considerate to our resident neighbors.  Do not block their driveways.  Avoid turning around in driveways.  Do not honk horns, discard trash, or walk on lawns.  Refrain from creating unnecessary noise.
 

 

Please Note:  There is an after school program through the Beyond the Bell program.  Children in grades 2 – 5 can play on the lower yard with adult supervision until you are able to pick them up after school before 6:00 p.m. Please fill out and submit the Beyond the Bell permission slip at the main office.
