Parent FAQs

How does the parent loop work for drop-off?

Parents may drop off students in the parent look between 8:30 and 9:00 each morning.  If at all possible, have your child sit on the passenger side of the car before leaving home.  Enter the loop to the left as you enter into the parking lot.  Stay in line and pull up behind any cars currently in the loop.  A staff member will open the car door for your child to exit the vehicle.  Do NOT park in the loop.  Traffic must remain moving.

 

How does parent loop work for pick-up?

Parents using the parent loop in the afternoon for pick-up MUST have an orange parent loop pass displayed in the windshield.  Forms are sent home at the beginning of the school year to request passes.  To pick-up in the loop, find the end of the line leading to the loop.  Sometimes the line wraps into the parking lot.  Once in line, follow the car in front of you.  When your child sees your vehicle pull up to the loading area, a staff member will open the vehicle door for your child to enter.  Do not pass other vehicles in the loop once you have your child, remain in line and follow the flow of traffic.  In order for your child to be waiting at parent loop, notification must be given to the teacher/school.  Notification can be a note sent to the teacher or a phone call to the office before 3:00, notes are preferred.  If you have multiple students being picked up, please send a note to each teacher.
