Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

In an effort to ensure safety for all students it is important that parents understand the following   procedures that will be put in place for student drop off/pick up.  Smooth traffic flow requires the help and cooperation of everyone. 

Cars will enter from either of two locations: the drop-off loop on Castlemont Ave. or on Barkwood Dr. for pick up or drop off from vehicles. If you intend to walk your student to the gate, you must park on the streets around Castlemont. The parking lot is closed to parents and families.  Please refer to the campus map for walk-in gate entries.  Not all of our gates will be open.

Drop Off 

  • In order to limit the number of families entering and exiting from the same location we will stagger student start/end times.  

  • Drivers are to remain in their vehicles during drop-off and pick-up for grades 3 and up. 

  • Students in grades TK-2 can be escorted by an adult to the appointed entrance but adults will be required to stay 6 feet from others not in their family and will not be allowed to congregate after drop off. 

  • Please be on time for your designated drop off time and ensure that your student has their backpack/supplies ready to go when arriving at school. 

  • Visitors are not able to come onto campus for now. 

  • Students will be welcomed, and  if needed, they will be supported in getting to their classroom.

  • When using the drop off loop, the student must exit the vehicle on the curb side, cars are not allowed to park in the drop off area.

Pick Up

  • Please be on time. 

  • For in-person pick-up, please have only one parent or caregiver, wearing a facial covering come meet the child near the gate, while following physical distancing protocols. 

  • If you will be staying in your vehicle and having your student walk to you, please have the child’s seat cleared and ready to get in as quickly as possible. 

  • When using the pick up loop, the student must enter the vehicle from the curb side. Cars are not allowed to park in the pick up area.

Parents are requested to use social distancing guidelines outside the gates while waiting for students.
