Car Line Proceedures
Morning Drop Off: For the safety of the children, parents of car riders are requested to have your child exit the car at ones of the ten designated poles. If you park in the front parking lot, you have to walk your child across the crosswalk. Students are not allowed to walk across the crosswalk by themselves. Do NOT park in the handicap spaces unless you have a handicap tag.

Afternoon Car Line: The left-hand car lane in the afternoon cannot be blocked until 2:00. You may start parking in that lane at 2:00. Parents should be in their car no later than 2:35 or 2:40 pm. At approximately 2:45, we will take students who have not been picked up inside the building. Once inside the building, parents will need to park and come in to sign out their child.

If your child/children miss their name when it is announced, and are not at the correct pole on time, your car/carpool will be asked to pull forward beyond pole 1. This is so the car line can continue efficiently and the next 10 cars are in place simultaneously. Names are announced and then often teachers repeat names again. He or she can also ask any teacher about their pole number on the way out the PE door.
