Morning Drop-off Reminders

With winter here, the kiss and ride is becoming increasingly busy.   In order to make the drop off more efficient and safe, please review the following:

  1. Arrive just after 8:40 am, as there is minimal traffic at this time.   To date, a significant number of parents have been dropping off between 8:50 and 8:55 am, which has led to congestion, frustration and many students arriving late.  Please note, arriving after 8:55 am is resulting in your child being late.  Over the last few school days, an increased number of students have been arriving after 9:00 am.
  2. Carpooling and walking to school.
  3. If driving, consider an alternate drop off location, such as on the north side of Apple Blossom in front of the school, or closer to our community park, or any of the adjacent side streets.  Then, students can safety walk onto our school grounds using the sidewalk.
  4. Tips for using the Kiss and Ride:
    1. Have your child ready with backpack beside them or on their lap.
    2. If your child is in a booster and/or requires support, please use the back-passenger side as their seat to exit the vehicle.  This is cub-side and hence much safer for your child to leave the vehicle.
    3. Avoid getting out of your vehicle.
    4. Move up as far along the cub-side as possible, before stopping to drop off.  Stopping with car-length space in front of you slows down the process.
    5. Avoid entering the drop off area, ‘two-vehicles wide’.  The drop off is meant for single lane traffic at the entry.
    6.  Model patience and avoid honking unnecessarily to move cars forward.
    7. Continue to follow staff directions to move forward.

Thank you for reviewing the following items.  Your continued cooperation and patience is really appreciated.

“Keep calm and Drive on!”
