CAR KID Requests
Car Kid requests will be taken by the office only until 2:15 each day. Parents who have submitted a note or contacted the school prior to 2:15 will be using the circle area for pick up this year. You will drive around the loop and remain in your car to wait for your child. A staff member will have a clipboard with the car kids listed on it. They will have the children on the sidewalk and make a one on one connection and then walk the child to your car. It is important that you do not block the bus lane when attempting to pull into the loop. Several staff members will be in the circle area to help make this process smooth and safe.
Parents who do not contact the school prior to 2:15 and want to take their child(ren) home, will have to park in the parking lot and then walk to the sidewalk by the entrance doors. You will need to sign your child out with one of the school staff members and then wait until your child’s bus number has been called.
