Our School Parking Protocols
In order to keep children safe, and keep drop-off and pick-up as efficient as possible, our School has adopted these protocols. We ask that all caregivers review and follow the protocols in order to contribute to our safe school culture and demonstrate consideration and respect for all. At the end of the day, the children are watching. Please remember you are modeling for them the necessity of following school rules and showing respect for all.
Morning Care is provided beginning at 7:30 a.m. in the cafeteria. All students arriving prior to 8:15 must report to Morning Care.
All students must be off campus by 4:00p.m. unless attending a KMS sanctioned after school activity or Extended Day Enrichment Program (EDEP).
Car pick-up and drop off is in the front of the school. Drop off and pick-up should occur only from the southern lot on SW 250th Street in the valet line. Dropping off and picking up in the northern bus drop off lot (SW4th Ave) is strictly prohibited as it is a major safety concern.
Drivers must remain in their vehicles while parked in the valet line during prime pick-up and drop-off times. The valet line (denoted by the green curb along the front of the school) is to be used for drop-off and pick-up from:
The staff will help all children to their cars during these times. At all other times parking along the green curb should be limited to a maximum of 15 minutes.
While in the valet line, please pull all the way to the front until traffic is stopped. A staff member will escort your child to/from your car. Children should have their things gathered and be ready to unload as soon as the car is against the curb.
Whenever traffic along green curb is completely backed up to behind the first crosswalk those against the curb (lane 1) should load/unload there. Those in the far line (lane 2) will be prioritized and directed to a space along the green curb (in lane 1 past 1st crosswalk) as soon as one is available. When those on the green curb are loading/unloading those that have already loaded and or unloaded from the kinder curb (lane 1) will be directed through to the far lane (lane 2) to exit.
Thank you for helping to keep all of our children safe, and to alleviate traffic as much as possible!
Picking Up Children From School Early: Children are not released directly from the classroom to leave school before dismissal times. You MUST come to the office first and sign out your child. Your child will be sent for and released to you.
