Parking Lot Pick up & Drop off (Kiss-and-Go Zone)

The Kiss-and-Go Zone and the parking lot is at the front of the school building. Our Kiss-and-Go Zone can accommodate an efficient drop-off and pick-up process if all parents and students follow these guidelines:

  • Use the school bus or walk whenever possible.
  • Never leave your vehicle unattended at the curb, even for “a minute.”
  • Use the inside curb lane for picking up or dropping off your children. Do not allow your children to dash across the lot to find you.
  • Children should enter/exit cars on the curbside for safety.
  • As you enter the lot, pull up as far as you can when dropping off or picking up your child.
  • Be ready. Please have backpacks ready, coats on, breakfast eaten BEFORE you enter the drop-off line so your child is ready to “Kiss-and-Go” when you stop the car.
  • Please exercise patience at all times.
  • Refrain from cell phone use while moving through the parking lot. It’s dangerous and illegal.
  • If your child care provider or other family member will be dropping off or picking up your children, it is your responsibility to make sure that those designated persons are also familiar with these policies and routines.
  • If you need to park, please use a designated parking spot, get out of your car, use the crosswalk to meet your child(ren), and use the crosswalk to escort them back to your car.
  • There are parking lot “attendants” present at pickup and drop off. Their primary responsibility is student safety.
  • The parking lot layout can be confusing. The goal is to get the children to school safely and keep the cars moving. Please follow the “parking attendants’” directions when in the parking lot.
