AM Drop Off and PM Pick Up Guidelines

posted Sep 3, 2013, 6:40 PM by Kalapuya Elementary

Car Drop Off in the Morning

If you are dropping students off between 8:50 and 9:10am, pull up anywhere along the red curb in front of the school (far right hand lane) and have your student(s) exit the vehicle on the passenger side.  This ensures the student’s safety as they will not be walking in front of or alongside moving vehicles.  The left two lanes may not be used to drop students off.


Pick Up After School

Your child’s safety is our number one priority.  With over 650 students enrolled in our school, it is very important that we have a structured and orderly process for dismissing students at the end of each school day.  There will be three different locations that students will be escorted to at 3:30pm (Bus, Walk, Car).  Students will be escorted to each location by a teacher from their grade level who will be carrying a sign for the location they will be walking to.  If you have more than one child attending Kalapuya, once they get to their dismissal area, the older siblings can go and stand with the younger siblings at the younger grade level area.  If students have older siblings who are picking them up, they should not be on school property until school is dismissed at 3:30pm.  This is a safety issue as we will not have anyone outside supervising them.


1.     Car Pick-Up (Front Parking Lot)

The front of the school is reserved for parents who are picking students up in their car.  Simply pull into one of the three lanes in front of the school and a staff member will escort your student to your car.  Parents are to remain in their vehicle.  We will not allow students to run through the parking lot to get to their parent’s car.  By remaining in your car, you will be helping maintain the flow of vehicles into and out of the parking lot while allowing the vehicles behind to advance forward. 


2.     Walkers, Bike Riders, Parent Walking to Pick Up Student (Playground Area)

Students will be escorted to the back of the building by the playground.  Once in that area, older siblings will be able to meet up with younger siblings and walk or ride their bike home, or wait for a parent to pick them up. 

** If you are driving to pick up your child and would like to get out of the car to meet them, you will need to park on Wilmington, or another side street, and walk to the playground where your child will be waiting.  Please do not park in the front parking lot and then walk to get your student.  This disrupts the flow of vehicles in the car pick up line.


3.     Bus Riders/YMCA Childcare (Cafeteria).

Students who are attending YMCA childcare will be taken to the cafeteria.  Students riding the bus will be escorted directly to the buses.
