Parking Lot/Drop-off and Pick-up Reminders

  • Drop off area is between the two crosswalks.
  • Please drive as far forward, toward the BAMS' crosswalk, as possible before letting your child out of the car. This will allow more cars into the parking lot. 
  • Drop-off line is next to the curb ONLY.  
  • Drop-off line and parking lot is a NO Cell Phone Zone.
  • Please only park in unmarked stalls if you are walking your child onto campus.

  • Please use the marked crosswalks when arriving and leaving campus. 

  • There is NO drop off at the "island" in the front parking lot.

  • Do NOT call to your child to cross the parking lot or driveway to get to your car. 

  • Please walk up to the sidewalk to escort your child back to your car if you are parked in the parking lot

  • Please be courteous to other drivers and adhere to the parking lot and drop-off protocol.
