Morning Drop-off Car Line Procedure
Students may begin arriving on campus at 8:00 am. At that time, all PYP students will be directed to food carts inside Gate 2 while all MYP students report to the cafeteria for breakfast.
For the morning car line, cars may enter the car line from either direction on Manhattan Ave; please take turns letting in one car from each direction. Once you reach a spot with a cone, your student(s) may exit the vehicle on the passenger side. There is typically a student safety patrol helping open and close vehicle doors.
Dismissal – 3:25 pm
Car Rider Line: Car tags must be hanging on the rear-view mirror and visible when traveling through the car line. The car rider line is located at the Morth entrance of the building off of Manhattan Ave. Traffic flows southbound on Manhattan Avenue. Parents enter the exit end of the faculty parking lot and loop around, towards the front of the school. Students will enter on the right/passenger side of each vehicle. After all students in the line are securely in their cars, the cars will be released. Please follow the directive of school personnel as to exiting the car line. We ask that parents remain in their cars during the dismissal process.
School dismisses at 2:25 pm on early-release Mondays and 3:25 pm Tuesdays – Fridays.
Cars can ONLY enter the afternoon carline from the north, heading southbound on Manhattan Ave (see green arrows in the map above). No cars can enter the afternoon carline from any side streets or from south of the school (see red arrows and red X marks in the map above).
As dismissal time nears, the car line will be backed up from the school parking lot onto Manhattan Ave and likely onto Boy Scout Blvd. If the line is already onto Boy Scout Blvd when you arrive, please get in the back of the line (which may require you to make a U-turn on Boy Scout Blvd).
DO NOT block the intersection of Manhattan Ave and Boy Scout Blvd.
DO NOT block the entrance to the fire station that is at the northeast corner of Manhattan Ave and Boy Scout Blvd.
Most importantly, DO NOT CUT in line from a side street — be kind and considerate of other parents’ time! All of our time is valuable, and if parents choose to arrive early to get a good spot in the line, be respectful and do not cut in front of them.
