STUDENT SAFETY

IS OUR PRIORITY!

Please take a moment to refresh your memory to the procedures, or learn how it works if you're new to the school!

Kids notice when their parents use the "I'll just be a minute" excuse or act as if the rules don't apply to them. Please exhibit the same C.R.O.C.S. standards we hold our students to:

  • Considerate

  • Respectful

  • Own our actions

  • Communicate effectively

  • Strive for excellence

If you have any questions regarding the parking lot or drop-off and pick-up procedures, please contact our principal, Mrs. Lundstrom!

  • Drive slowly in the parking lot and on surrounding streets.

  • Always watch for children and be cautious.

  • Remain patient, courteous, and follow the rules.

  • Cell phones should not be used in the parking lot, especially when students are present.

  • Do not block crosswalks, street access, or driveways.

  • No U-turns on Katherine St. or Kirsten Ave.

  • Please do not park in the Staff parking lot unless you are in a VISITOR spot.

  • Please follow campus supervisor directions in the parking lot.

  • "Just for a minute" is not an excuse to break the rules or laws.

  • Do not wait for adults or students in Staff travel lanes (indicated with red arrows on the map).

  • Do not sit in red curb zones: this severely blocks driver's vision of the street traffic when pulling out of the parking lot. 

DROP-OFF (Before School)

We have two drop off routes. Through the parking lot and on Kirsten Ave. When dropping off in the parking lot and Kirsten Ave., please pull as far forward as possible along the yellow curb. Your child should only exit the vehicle on the passenger side. Stay in your car and do not leave your car unattended in the unloading areas. If you would like to walk your child onto campus, please park on the side streets.

PICK-UP (After School)

In the parking lot, pull as far forward as possible along the yellow curb. Do not leave your car unattended in the loading/unloading areas. A campus supervisor will approach your vehicle and ask for your child's name. Your child will then be notified that you are there. Your child should enter the car on the passenger side only, as this helps ensure children are never walking between cars. If you choose to park, please do so on the side streets: not in the staff parking spots or in the red curb zones.
