Please be patient in our carpool lines  Here are a few reminders that parents need to do to help carpool move quickly and ensure students are safe.

  • Please make sure student are getting out on the right side of the car
  • Pull up to the sign
  • Do not pass other cars
  • If you are dropping off a Kindergarten and 1st-5th grade student, you only have to make one stop.  You can pull to the kindergarten building and when the kindergarten student gets out, the older child may get out and walk through the 1st grade side entrance.
  • Afternoon carpool, the double line does not form until 3:10 AND the double line should not go past the brick columns.
