Pick-Up Wave Times

Wave times work best when everyone in our community abides by them. If you are not at your appropriate wave time, you may be asked to re-queue inline or park. Therefore, it will be necessary for every driver to do their best to plan arrival at or within the wave time designated to their student(s)

Drop-Off FAQ:

How early may I arrive at school for drop-off?

We ask you not to arrive at the campus before 7:20 a.m.  This allows our teachers and staff the opportunity to park and enter the building before our drop-off process.

When do I drop off my student(s), and where do I drop them off?

Drop Off begins at 7:20 a.m.  Students are not allowed to leave the vehicle until a staff member is present.

After drop-off, where do students walk?

If dropped off before 7:35 AM, Kinder-2nd grade will go to the playground, 3rd and 4th grade will go to the turfed area beside the playground, and 5th grade will utilize half of the MPR until the morning bell rings.

Upper School Scholars will walk to the gym, where they will be seated until the morning bell rings.

I have to get to an early meeting at work. Can I drop my student off before 7:20 a.m.?

Early drop-offs whereby the students are left before 7:20 a.m. are not permitted.  Please make other arrangements.

When does drop-off end?

Faculty-assisted drop-off concludes at 7:48 a.m.  Students arriving after this time will need to be walked into the administrative office by their parents.  Parents, you will need to park your vehicle and walk your student in.

How do I know when to leave?

Please do not leave the drop-off area until you are waved along by the parking captain (The person at the beginning of the line of vehicles).  Drivers must acknowledge and obey the staff who safely care for you, your students, and all the other cars around you.

Pick-Up FAQ:

What will my student be doing while they wait?

We use an application called CURB to inform the teachers that you have arrived and are ready to pick up your student.  This allows the students to stay in their class while they await your arrival.  As the year goes on, many students will complete some homework while they wait to be picked up.

What time does school dismiss?

Dismissal is 3:45 PM. This means that the first students will begin arriving at their vehicles shortly after that time, by a few minutes.

Why can’t I get my student when I arrive?

While you may enter our parking lot at 3:30 p.m, this does not mean your students will be dismissed at that time to your care as they are waiting to be dismissed through our CURB app.

My student has a Doctor’s appointment right after school. What do I do?

If you need to withdraw your student before the end of the day, we ask that you do so no later than 2:30 PM p.m. On full days and 12:30 PM on early release days.
