Drop-Off & Pickup
Morning drop-off procedures
We expect our parking lot to be congested and ask parents to use our buses instead of driving children to school. If there is inclement weather, consider driving your child to their bus stop rather than to the school; this will greatly assist with the level of congestion.
Cedar Island students may enter the building at 9:20 a.m. Procedures for dropping your child off at school are:
- Use the north lot only, entering at the stoplights.
- Follow the path along the curb in a single file line, pulling up as far as the cars ahead of you will allow. Please be sure children are completely prepared so they may quickly exit the right-hand side of your vehicle along the curb.
- Follow the cars in front of you and exit the parking lot. For safety reasons, please do not drive around cars.
Park in the north lot and walk with your child(ren) to the crosswalk. When the crossing guard lowers the flag, walk across the crosswalk and onto the sidewalk. Please do not send your child(ren) across the parking lot alone.
Oak View Elementary students
Oak View students who are dropped off in the Cedar Island parking lot should stay on the paths when walking to Oak View. They are not allowed to enter our building as we do not have supervision available.
Afternoon pickup procedures
Dismissal begins at 3:55 p.m. (3:45 p.m. for Early Childhood students). If you must pick your child up by car, please enter the north parking lot (at the stoplight). For safety reasons, the sidewalk dip will be coned off. Please follow these procedures:
- Park in the north lot.
- Enter the front foyer of the building; your child(ren) will meet you inside the building. We do not allow children to walk to the cars without the assistance of their parents/guardians. For safety reasons, children will not be allowed to wait outside.
Students who walk home will be released at 4 p.m. and should follow the sidewalk if going to the south, and the paths or sidewalk if going north.
