  • School starts at 8:00AM
  • PK-3rd Grade drop off is in REAR of school.
  • 4th-8th Grade drop off is in FRONT of school (if you have a mix of older kids/younger kids you may drop off in rear and older kids can walk to front to wait)
  • Please stay off your phone while in the drop off line.
  • Please approach the school on Darden from the west. Do NOT come from the east on Darden and turn right into the lot. Obey the sign that says “No Right Turn” during the posted times.
  • When dropping off in the morning, please make a SINGLE file line.
  • In the REAR Dropoff, please stay in your car, the principal and priests will open your child’s door for them and help them out.
  • 2-3 Cars will be unloaded at a time. Do not let your child out by themselves–wait for the principal to open the door.
  • Please say your goodbyes prior to the front of the line so traffic is not held up.
  • In the front of the the school, do not let your children out until you get to the cones.

Afternoon Pick-Up for BACK OF SCHOOL (PK-3rd Grades)

  • Please have a sign in your front window with your child’s name or carpool name so that the teachers can quickly load your car.
  • Please put your phones away when the children exit the building.
  • Please approach the school on Darden from the west. Do NOT come from the east on Darden and turn right into the lot. Obey the sign that says No Right Turn during the posted times.
  • For the early arrivals, if the orange cones are blocking the drive, form 2 lines to wait for the conclusion of recess.
  • Once the children go in from recess, the cones may be moved. If there is no recess in progress, the cones may be moved around 2:35 – 2:40.
  • The first car should pull up to and stop at the yellow post by the rectory garage other cars follow taking turns merging into a SINGLE FILE LINE just past the playground. Please stay to the left of the drive to allow the children a walkway as they exit the school.
  • At 2:55PM, the first car should pull straight ahead to the yellow parking stripes on the other side of the garage doors (we do this so we don’t block the garage doors for the priests who may have to leave/return).
  • All other cars should follow. This will allow 4-5 cars to be loaded at a time.
  • Please DO NOT get out of your vehicle. The teachers will assist your children.
  • Once your children are loaded, please pull out of the line. If your children need to get situated, pull into the parking lot instead of staying in line.

Afternoon Pick-Up for FRONT OF SCHOOL (4th-8th Grades)

  • Please have a sign in your front window with your child’s name or carpool name so that the teachers can quickly load your car.
  • Please approach the school on Darden from the west. Do NOT come from the east on Darden and turn right into the lot. Obey the sign that says “No Right Turn” during the posted times.
  • Upon entering off of Darden, two lines will be formed to approach the doors for pick-up. If you are in the LEFT LANE, you must EXIT LEFT onto Darden. If you are in the RIGHT LANE, you must EXIT RIGHT onto Darden.
  • Please put your phones away when the children exit the building.
  • Please wait for your child to exit the building when their name is called.

  • Once your children are loaded, please pull out of the line. If your children need to get situated, pull into the parking lot instead of staying in line.

DO NOT PARK IN THE REAR PARKING LOT AND WALK UP TO GET YOUR CHILDREN IN THE BACK OF THE SCHOOL. THIS HAS BEEN DANGEROUS IN THE PAST, AS PEOPLE HAVE WALKED INTO TRAFFIC. PLEASE OBEY ALL TRAFFIC FLOW. IT IS FOR YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY. THANK YOU.

Exiting onto S.R. 933

  • The left lane is used to turn North (left).
  • The right lane is used to turn South (right).
  • Please do not exit from the middle. Please pull over far enough so both lanes may be used.

Rainy Day Dismissal
If it is raining at dismissal, pick-up will be done by the playground at the same place the children are dropped-off. They will remain in the school and dismissed one by one.

If a relative or friend is picking up your children, PLEASE relay these procedures to them.

***The safety of our children is of the utmost importance and these procedures will make pick-up safe and efficient. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
