First Day of School Pickup/Dropoff Information
Please make us aware of your plans for your child's transportation this school year by filling out this first day of school pickup and dropoff form.
Morning Drop Off Procedures
If you are dropping off a student, you may use the circle drive on the north side of the building that goes to the back of the building. A staff member will be at the back door at 7:30 a.m. each morning to assist students. The gate to the back drive is locked at 7:55 a.m. each morning.
If you would like to park and walk your child to the building, please use the parking lot west of the playground. You may enter through the front door.
Please do not use the front drive until after 8:00 a.m. We need it clear for bus traffic.
Drop Off/Pickup Procedures Throughout the School Day
If you are dropping off, or picking up a student throughout the school day, you may park in the front drive (on the west side) unless it is between the hours of 10:20-10:35 a.m., and 11:30-11:45 a.m. Pre-school buses will be in the front drive during those times. You may also park along the street in the parking spots parallel to the school. The front drive will be closed to car traffic at 1:45 p.m. to allow for busses to line-up for end-of-the-day pick-up. The parking lot west of the playground may also be utilized at any time throughout the school day.
End of the Day Pickup Procedures
The front drive is closed to car traffic from 1:30 until the buses leave. We start loading buses at 2:10 p.m.. (For the first 2-3 weeks we will probably start loading between 2:00 and 2:05.) We will finish loading buses around 2:20 p.m. Car riders will also be dismissed at 2:10 p.m.. Teachers will bring students to the back door for car pick up. If you are picking up a student at dismissal you may either pick them up through the car line (recommended) or walk up:
Using the car pick up line
With your vehicle, form a line at the gate on the north side of the playground until it is opened at 2:10pm. It is highly recommended that you form a line and enter the circle drive from the northwest using Taylor Ave, rather than in front of the school. When the gate is opened, follow the circle drive. Your student will be loaded into your car by Mark Twain staff at the back of the building. Please stay in your vehicle during pick up to help make the process more efficient.
Park in the parking lot, follow the sidewalk up to the building and the walk through the gate to cross the playground blacktop to the back (east end) of the building. A staff member will go inside to get your student for you. Please keep in mind that entering and exiting the parking lot will be challenging, as there will be vehicles using the circle drive in the back of the building.
