Car Line

· safetyPlease encourage your child to be ready to exit the car - seat belt off, backpack together, coat/gloves on.  This will keep the line moving.

· Students are only permitted to exit the car when in the car line.  For safety concerns, students should not exit the vehicle in the driving lane.

· If the driver or adult in the car needs to get out to help the student or do things (e.g talk, hair, sign slips) please pull past the car line closer to the corner.

· There is no parking anywhere in the car line.  Preschoolers are dropped off by the office doors so this area needs to be clear.
