Morning Drop Off All cars will line up facing west on 500 North Street. (There will be NO LEFT HAND TURN permitted from 500 North into the school parking lot.) PLEASE PULL FORWARD AND STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE. Only when you reach the appropriate YELLOW PAINTED ZONE can your child exit your vehicle!! All students will be helped out of cars and escorted (If needed) into the school. Please make sure your child is ready to quickly exit your car.
Afternoon Pick-Up All cars will line up facing west on 500 North Street. (There will be NO LEFT HAND TURN permitted from 500 North into the school parking lot.) All cars will be issued a name card. Be sure to have the name card visible to help us load the students quickly. When the final bell rings, all students who are being picked up will report to the gym. The lines will be escorted outside once the bus and bikers have cleared the parking lot. The teachers on duty will call out the cars approaching the yellow zone and have the students standing by to quickly load. WILCOX
Helpful Hints Have your children walk to and from the Stake Center about a block east on 500 North. You can pick them up and drop them off in the parking lot and avoid the lines – plus they get a little exercise. Avoid the lines by dropping off 5 minutes earlier and picking up 5 minutes later. If you are unloading or loading bikes, please do so in the west parking lot. If you need to come into the school, please park in the west parking lot.
SAFETY FIRST!!! Keep in mind that the plan is implemented for the safety of all students. Please follow the directions from all posted signs and school employees. The Community Council would appreciate any concerns or constructive comments.
