Drop-Off / Pick-Up Procedures

The west parking lot is for staff parking only. The east parking lot is for staff parking and buses only. Parents may not park in either lot. Visitor parking is in the front circle drive.

Students are dropped off/picked up in three locations: along Maxine Street heading eastbound only so students step out of the vehicle on to school property (we don't want students crossing traffic), in front of the school in the circle drive (one direction - enter near the flagpole and exit on California near Harper), and buses in the east parking lot drive-through lane. The east parking lot drive-through is for buses only. No students are to be dropped off on California Street in either direction!

The cafeteria opens at 7:45 a.m. only for students needing breakfast. Students dropped off from vehicles or buses may walk around the building and enter cafeteria Door #6 after 7:45 a.m. to get breakfast. All other students must line up and enter the building at their assigned doors by 8:00 a.m. School officially starts at 8:05 a.m.

6th grade students line up at Door #13 on the Maxine/North side of the school building.

7th grade students line up at Door #16 on the West side of the school building.

8th grade students line up at Door #2 in front of the school by the flagpole.
