    Carline Process

    Please have your student car tag on display until your child has been loaded into the car. 

    Cars should enter through the north entrance and follow the new road along the north side of the school. Upon approaching the sidewalk near the school, cars will merge into one lane. 

    Your child will be waiting at one of the numbered signs to load into your car. Students should promptly load from the driver's side door. For safety reasons, we do not want kids walking between cars.

    Follow the carline out the north entrance. For safety reasons, please stay in the line and do not pass the car in front of you. Once the buses leave, cars will be redirected to drive in front of the school and exit from the south end of the building. 

    No cars should drive in front of the building while buses are present.
