Policies & procedures

Arrival by car

In order to make our arrival and dismissal procedures work smoothly, considering the limitations of parking on our campus, please follow the guidelines below.

If you plan on dropping your child off in front of the school:

  • Enter Celeste Drive from First Street/Broadway only.
  • Drive down First Street/Broadway.
  • Turn down Celeste Drive to enter the school in order to avoid congestion and help our arrival procedures run smoothly.

If you choose to park your car, please remember that you will need to a find spot in the neighborhood and walk to the campus. This will be most effective if you park on the other side of Dairy Lane on Vista, Monica, or Calvin Drive and then walk to our campus.

Please avoid parking on Celeste Drive, or in front of our school as this will hinder other parents from moving through the drop-off line.

Dismissal by car

In order to assist with dismissal procedures, parents with students in grades K, 1 and 2 should arrive at 3:10 p.m. Parents with students in grades 3, 4 and 5 may arrive at 3:20 p.m. in order to help the flow of traffic.

  • Students in grades K and 5 will be dismissed in the back of the building. If these students have any siblings, they will also be dismissed with together in the back of the building. Parents can access this area by driving down Dairy Lane and turning into the road leading to the back of the campus.
  • Students in grades 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be dismissed in the front of the building.
