Car Rider Procedure
Kristy Delp

Student Safety is our #1 Priority during Arrival and Dismissal.  Please review and become familiar with our school procedures.  

Bus riders

Unload at 8:50 a.m. and load at 3:30 p.m. when the bells ring.


Car Riders

Parents dropping off or picking up students enter the access drive between the elementary and middle schools and drive behind Mintonye.  Vehicles remain single file and drivers should be attentive, prompt and courteous to one another as well as to both bus and employee traffic.  (Please allow bus traffic to cross as needed.)  (See the photo below for a visual.)

Students enter and exit vehicles on the right side directly from the sidewalk.

We provide multiple car signs that should remain visible and legible on right side of your dashboard.  (Signs for families new to Mintonye may be picked up Monday, August 12 or Tuesday, August 13 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.)

Drop off begins at 8:45 a.m. at Door #3 on the Southeast/Right side of the school.

Pick up begins at 3:25 p.m. in the same location.

Parents dropping off or picking up after these times should park in the main parking lot in front of the school and accompany their child to the main office where they will sign in.



Parents should continue to park in the main parking lot in front of the school and accompany their child to the YCare location for sign in and sign out between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

As a reminder, plans for your child's dismissal should be made before they enter the school.  One written note provided to your child's teacher will suffice to alert them of changes in the normal routine.  We realize that emergencies arise and in those rare instances, you should call the school office at 765.538.2780 to alert the main office that a change needs to take place.  We thank you for helping us keep our students, safe, content, and in an interruption-free environment where they can succeed and thrive.
