Positive Leaders and Community Builders with a Growth Mindset

Car Riders

Student car riders are encouraged to arrive and be dropped off between 7:10 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. by the first post under the awning.  Students are to open the doors to the cars on their own unless assistance is needed.  This would help with the flow of traffic.   Car Riders  will enter the building through the main entrance. Students will enter their classrooms and breakfast will be served in the classrooms.  

Remember, our school day begins at 7:30 a.m., and students are tardy unless they are in their classrooms by 7:30 a.m.  No child should arrive before 7:10 a.m. or be unsupervised!!! 

It is vital that all parents follow procedures and use the car area safely. Our car riders are to enter our campus using the front driveway. Students should exit cars on the passenger side at the sidewalk. Seatbelts must be worn by all passengers in vehicles.  “Buckle Up,” and be safe!

Car Rider Afternoon Pickup:  Afternoon dismissal is 2:30 p.m.  Students should be picked up in the car rider area.  As parents arrive, a staff member will call students to the car rider area for student safety and accountability.  The parent is to display their student car rider sign in the front window of their car.   A sign will be given to the parent at registration.  If the sign is not displayed for any reason, the adult picking the student up will need to report to the front office to present identification and to sign out the student.  If a parent knows that someone else will pick up their child, they have the right to give their sign to that person for permission. 

Please complete the following form if your child will be an afternoon car rider.  Please list all the students who ride in the same car together.

Car Rider Tag Form: 

All students must be picked up at 2:45. Late students will be sent to the Boys and Girls Club and a late charge may be assessed.  Law enforcement or DSS may be notified in warranted circumstances.

Car Rider Safety:  Please be patient, buckle up, and drive with caution and LOVE! It is vital that you practice safety at all times.  PLEASE make sure that your child, other students, and teachers and staff are away from your car before you move.  Please do not pass other cars in the car rider line. PLEASE DISPLAY YOUR CHILD’S NAME ON THE DASH OR VISOR EACH DAY!

For the safety of our students, please keep your child’s name visible until your child is in your car.

Morning Car Rider Procedures

To help expedite our morning car rider line, we would like to remind parents of the following procedures:

1.Before 7:10am, if you are the first car in the car rider line, please park behind the crosswalk.
2. Once the car rider line starts, please pull down as far as the staff is motioning you to stop. The first car will stop at the awning.
3. As soon as your car stops, make sure that your child's door is unlocked. We asked that the parent or the student unbuckle the seatbelt.
4. Make sure your child has all of his/her materials in hand and ready to exit the vehicle.
5. If your child is able to get out of the car in the appropriate area, please encourage him/her to get out of the car and to exit the vehicle safely.

***Please note the staff on duty in the car rider line are not collecting fees during arrival.
