    STUDENT DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP PROCEDURES

    The parking lot improvements that were completed over the summer have contributed to a more organized and safe student drop-off and pick-up routine. In an effort to continually improve this process, we ask all parents to please stay in the lane closest to the curb/ school when dropping off or picking up students. We do not want students crossing in front of vehicles so it is very important that all cars remain in the lane closest to the school/curb. The outside lanes should only be used to exit the line after your student has exited the car (in the morning) or after your student has safely entered your car (in the afternoon). Additionally, do not use the visitor parking lot in the center for pick-up/drop.

    Thank you your cooperation and for helping us during this transition with our new parking lot. Your student’s safety is our first priority.

     If you have any questions please feel free to send me an email at sheila.eller@moundsviewschools.org
