Parking & Transportation

Parent Drop off/Pickup

Safety First

PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY!

Student safety is our utmost priority. Two of the busiest times of the day on our campus are during the arrival and dismissal of over 500 students and staff.

Please take a moment to read our drop-off/pick up and parking lot guidelines.
Thank you for working in partnership with us in order to keep our students and staff members safe, as well as keeping the traffic in the parking lot flowing smoothly! Remember, all it takes is for one person to not follow the drop-off/pick up procedure to snarl the traffic flow. Thank you!

DROPPING OFF and PICKING UP STUDENTS

  • Please follow the directions of the student patrol guards, staff attendants, and all signage. They are designed to keep traffic flowing safely.

PARKING

The lower parking lot is RESERVED for school bus traffic and staff. Please DO NOT ENTER or park in the lower lot during the morning drop-off and afternoon pickup times. During the school day, we discourage parking in the lower lot because it is used at recess as part of the playground and students are constantly entering and leaving play areas via the parking lot. The gate is closed at 10:25am and is not opened until 2:45pm. If children are NOT present, parents may enter and park in the lot, but PLEASE close the gate behind you and BE AWARE, your departure may be delayed if children are on the playground.

The upper parking lot has a limited number of parking spaces for parents, the front lane is reserved for staff and those with handicap permits (must be displayed).

More parking is available by the grass strip between the upper and lower lots and to the south of the gate in front of the school's arboretum.
