Where Do I Drop-Off & Pick-Up My Child?
For those families whose child(ren) will be taking the bus, the bussing company provides “curb to curb” service – meaning they will pick up and drop off at your home (or designated address). Any changes to bussing pick up addresses require advance notice to be provided to the school in order to adjust route schedules. At the school, the bus will drop off and pick up directly in front of the school.
We are encouraging everyone to follow a Park and Walk strategy. If you park away from the busy area at the front of the school you can drop your child off and have them enter the school grounds from 47th Street. In that way, children can start their day with a walk to school. The parking lot is off limits for dropping off and picking up, unless specific arrangements are made for students with limited mobility.
Parking Lot is Off Limits
Our parking lot is for staff and CBE vehicles only.
It is an out-of-bounds area for students and parents. At the school, buses will drop off and pick up directly in front of the school. Please do not pick or drop off your child up in this area. Modeling safe street crossing for your child is an important way for them to learn safety. Making U-Turns around the school endangers children. Please find another way to safely get to your destination.
Leaving time for a ‘park and walk’ strategy means you can use street parking away from the bustling activity at the front of the school. Have you tried parking on 47th Street and having your child/children walk along the sidewalk or across the field to get to school? In this way, students can start their day with a wonderful walk to school.
Our common goal is Safety over Convenience.
