Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

The safety of student is our first priority. Please use the designated parent pick-up/dropoff area on the South side of the campus, pull all the way forward before picking up or dropping off children, use the designated crosswalk, and be courteous of other drivers, pedestrians, and staff. Following all staff directions will keep the area safe and set example for students of respecting school personnel.

Children should not be on campus earlier than 7:35 a.m., and should be picked up promptly at 2:00 p.m. Children who need after school care must be enrolled in Children’s Choice. Parents who consistently allow children on campus prior to 7:35 a.m. and/or consistently pick-up their children late will be reported to the Children, Youth, and Families Department and APS Police.

Students picked up before the end of the school day must be checked out in the office. Students will not be checked out after 1:00 p.m. without documentation of an appointment that requires early dismissal. Students will ONLY be released to an adult who is on the registration cared. A photo ID is required.

If after school plans change, please fax the instructions with a copy of the parent/guardian’s identification to 889-8621 no later than 1:00 p.m. This enables us to ensure the identity of the person requesting the change. We will not deliver phone messages for changes in after school plans.

Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures

  1. Enter the pick-up/drop-off area from Phoenix.
  2. To pick up or drop off your child, stay in the right hand lane.
  3. Pull ALL THE WAY FORWARD to the West gate.
  4. Pick up or drop off ONLY in the FIRST and SECOND parking space.
  5. Adults should remain in the car and ready to pull out promptly.
  6. Once your child is in or out of the car, pull out and continue through to Arizona. Please drive SLOWLY.
  7. Right turn only onto Arizona.
  8. Watch for children and adults.
  9. To park, please pull into a parking space.
  10. USE THE CROSSWALK on the WEST end of the pickup/drop-off line to cross. PLEASE DO NOT cross between cars. Doing so demonstrates to children that this is ok. For adults who are tall enough for drivers to see when they are between cars, it is fine in normal circumstances. Most children are too small for drivers to see when they cross between cars. Be aware that children learn from ALL adults around them so PLEASE USE THE CROSSWALK so that children will have the correct example set for them.
  11. When backing up from the parking spaces, be extra cautious.
  12. Please treat the staff on duty with respect. Setting the example of civil and respectful behavior is the responsibility of every adult on campus.

We know that our pick-up/drop-off area is far from ideal. We recognize that it can be difficult for parents to be patient when they are in a hurry. Please adhere to the procedures above anyway to ensure the safety of everyone. Your cooperation is critical. If you have questions or concerns about the procedures, please make an appointment with the principal.
