Magnet Bus Routes Arrival / Departure
Our school hours run from 9:25-3:50. If your child is arriving by bus, they will be dropped off between 9:00-9:20 am.
The school doors open at 9:00am. If your child is a walker or a car rider, they may enter the building at this time.
Guidelines for Pick-up/Drop-off
We have a Pick-up Drop-off lane at the front of our school. Please stay to the left of the cones so as not to block our bus lane.
If you are picking up or dropping off your child by car, please abide by the following guidelines:
- Stay to the left of the cones so as not to block our bus lane.
- Stay at or below 5mph. We have many children and families exiting/entering the building.
- Stay in the pick-up/drop-off lane, do not park. Our parking lot is reserved for staff between the hours of 8am-5pm.
- Stay alert and keep moving. No cellphones please.
If you are picking up or dropping off your child by foot, please abide by the following guidelines:
- Stay on the sidewalk with your child. Do not cross the front or side parking lots as there is a lot of traffic.
- Wait outside of the school, our office is quite busy during pick-up and drop-off times.
- Designate a "meeting spot" with your child so that you may find each other easily.
