Pick-Up and Drop-Off Procedures

Two Options for "Driving" Walkers: College Ave. is one-way going north at drop-off:

1. Pull up to the car drop-off line at the College Ave.

  • Drive up to the forward-most spot available so others can pull in behind you.
  • Discharge on curb-side ONLY.
  • Don't double park and let your child walk between cars to get to the curb.
  • Don't discharge your child until you are IN the cut-out
  • Do not get out of the car. A staff member will open the door and assist your child out of the car.
  • Staff will supervise kids as they walk to Courtyard Door F.
  • The children's safety is our primary concern.

2. Park your car and walk your child to Courtyard Door F. Please note that street parking is tight!

  • Don't park in the College Ave. cut-out, in either staff parking lot, in the Mt. Hebron Rd. circular drive, or blocking a resident's driveway, even "just for a minute."

Dropping off "Walking" Walkers:

Walk your child to Courtyard Door F (not the front school doors). Doors don't open until 8:40 a.m. and close promptly at 8:50. For your child's safety, you must bring him or her to the school's main entrance after 8:50. Please allow your child to walk into the building/to the classroom by him/herself. They can do it – really! We have plenty of "morning duty" adults posted in the hallways in the school to ensure that your child gets to his or her destination safely.

Biking to School:

The bike rack is located outside the music room near the College Ave. parking lot. Children should enter through Courtyard Door F. Don't forget to wear a helmet and bring a bike lock!

Late Drop-Off:

If you arrive after 8:50 a.m. and don't see a staffer at the College Ave. curb cut-out, don't drop your child off there. Courtyard Door F will be locked. Use the front doors on Mt. Hebron Rd. Students must report to the office to get a late pass.

Pick-Up:

At dismissal, (3:05p.m.) adults should wait for their child(ren) in the courtyard. If picking up your child during school hours, sign him/her out in the office, and wait for your child there. Changes to your child's normal pick-up routine must be submitted in writing to the teacher by a parent/guardian, or call the office before 2:30 p.m. as dismissal time is very busy.

For the safety of your children as well as the children in the neighborhood, and to help keep traffic moving safely, please remember:

  • NEVERpark in a crosswalk.
  • Do not park at a yellow curb (College Ave and Mt. Hebron).
  • Do not park beyond the 'No Parking from here to the Corner' sign.
  • Do not block driveways. Ever.
  • Parking is allowed on only one side of the street. Please do not park on the 'No Parking'side of the street.

There is plenty of parking in the neighborhood, but you need to give yourselves a few extra minutes to get to school on time. The township is vigilant about enforcing the rules and has reminded the school that they will be ticketing frequently if a car is parked illegally.
