    Car Line Procedures

    ***Anyone picking up students must display their Student Pick-Up Sign. (These will be provided in the first week of school.) If the adult picking up the child does not have a Student Pick-Up Sign, they will be required to come to the main office doors and use their photo ID to check the child out. This is for the safety of our students.  All parents picking up students must travel through the car pick-up line.***
    Car Line - Drive Through 

    • Stay to the right of Wilson St. behind the school to drop-off or pick-up your child.  
    • In the morning, your child should be ready to exit on the right-hand (passenger) side of your car. 
    • In the afternoon, display your Student Pick-Up Sign on your passenger visor if possible..
    • Students will be unloaded and loaded at the sign, so please pull all the way forward..
    • Once in-line on Hall Street in the afternoon, do not let anyone get in front of you in line or it will mess up our pick-up numbering  system.
