ARRIVAL & DISMISSAL of CAR RIDERS:

All car riders will be dropped-off and picked-up at Door 6 on the north side of the building. Mrs. Striegel, Mrs. Dunwoody, Mrs. Polk, and Mrs. Huhn will supervise drop-off and pick-up of students at Door 6.  The “Last Name Signs” you have been given for your dashboard have a map on the back to help you understand instructions below.

 As in the past, we will always follow your child’s primary transportation plan unless you have notified the school office no later than 3:00 p.m. You may send a note with your child, send an e-mail, or call the office to make a transportation change for that day. Always notify the school office. The teachers do not always have time to check e-mail and voice mail during the school day.

 NEW CAR RIDER DROP-OFF PROCEDURE:

  1. Enter the driveway between Mintonye and Southwestern. Follow the driveway behind the school. The first vehicle to arrive will proceed to the cone outside of Door #6. Put your “Last Name Sign” in your front window. Other cars will stay in line behind the first car.

  2. At 8:45, a teacher will exit the building and signal the first five cars to release their children. Children are to exit from the right side of their car onto the sidewalk and enter the school through Door #6.

  3. Those five cars will pull away, and the next five cars will pull up and release their children. The procedure continues until the last car has unloaded.

  4. After 9:00 a.m., you will need to park at Door #1 Main Entrance, come to the main office, and sign-in your child.
