Turtle Lake Parent Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

In order to create a safe environment for drop off and pick up, we want to provide a reminder of our drop-off and pick up procedures. These procedures address student safety- not for time efficiency.

Cars enter on the East side of the school off Lepak Ct. Please refrain from using cell phones or other devices during this time, keeping your attention on student safety.

Traffic Flow: To keep the flow of traffic in an organized manner, traffic will follow in a one way direction along the sidewalk. No parking will be available in this lot between the times of 8:45 a.m. to 9:20 a.m. and not again from 3:00 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Please plan accordingly.

Drop off/Pick up Zone: Only allow students out of the car in the drop off/pick up zone. This provides a direct access for students to the front doors. Parents are asked to stay in vehicles to ensure a quick drop-off.

  • Pull forward to farthest open spot as directed by school staff to allow for maximum cars to fit in area

  • Students should enter and exit the car on the passenger’s (right) side of the car to avoid proximity to other cars in the through lane.

  • Have all items students need ready for them to exit quickly to keep traffic moving

  • Do not pull around cars to exit, wait for car in front of you to move to exit

Parents parking or walking and picking up: Students waiting for a parent to park or walk and pick up will wait on large cement area between the pick-up zone and visitor parking. Parents are asked to wait in that area to allow for students to exit the building. Students will not be allowed to walk into the visitor parking area or down the steps to the street without a parent present.

Entering the building during drop off/pick up times. If possible, use the drop off/pick up procedures above. This provides the safest method of getting your child to and from school.

  • If you need to exit your car to help your child or enter the school, please park in the main parking lot

  • The lot within the drop-off/pick up area is only available before 8:45 a.m., between 9:20a a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and again after 4:15 p.m.

Exiting the school lot

  • Cars will exit onto Lepak Ct at the East end of the lot

  • Use caution when exiting the lot; watch for people in the crosswalk and other cars leaving the lot

  • Please give right-of-way to buses

  • Please refrain from using cell phones or other devices during this time.
