Morning Drop Off:
Students who are dropped off by parents in the morning are dropped off at the WEST entrance under the canopy. Parents pull up to the curb and staff are there to greet and make sure students get inside the building safely.
Parents who wish to walk their children into the building may do so through the main front doors of the school.
Students with last names that begin with A through M are dismissed at the PURPLE ZONE (WEST ENTRANCE).
Students with last names that begin with N-Z are dismissed at the GOLD ZONE (atrium entrance near the front).
Parents or guardians are given a car tag with a number. Staff call out names and students are walked to cars. If a staff member does not recognize someone picking a student up, they will ask to see a Driver's License and verify that person is on the approved pick-up list.
