Wahsatch Campus Drop-Off & Pick-Up

Corona Campus

- During morning drop-off times, please approach the campus from the south and make a right turn into the driveway

Grades 4-6 Drop-Off and Pick-Up
The drop-off and pick-up zone for these grades is in the upper-level parking lot along the curb area in front of Buildings "A" and "B," designated with cross-hatching on the pavement.  Vanguard School staff will be present to assist your child(ren) in getting out of and into your vehicle.  The area in front of the high school building is NOT an appropriate drop-off and pick-up location.  The right lane against the sidewalk is the CARPOOL LANE ONLY.  The left lane is for those visitors who INTEND TO PARK.  For the children's safety, please DO NOT drop off or pick up children in the left lane.  It is also recommended and encouraged that if you wish to park and drop off or pick up your child(ren), that you utilize the appropriately-marked crosswalk areas and accompany your child(ren) to and from the school building(s).

Upper-Level Lot Parking
The east end of the upper-level parking lot will be chained.  Those who wish to park should continue around, in the left lane, to the west end of the parking lot and enter there.  **For your child(ren)'s safety - parents are discouraged from double-parking in the upper-level lot to wait for their children...please either  park and walk in to pick up your child(ren) or utilize the appropriate carpool procedures!!

Grades 7-12 Drop-Off and Pick-Up
The drop-off and pick-up zone for these grades will be at the lower-level parking lot in the rear of The Vanguard School high school building.  This lot can be accessed off Corona Avenue at the northern border of the Corona Campus.  **NOTE: A sibling of a 7th-12th grader may be dropped off or picked up at this location also, and then walk through the high school to their appropriate building.  Alternatively, those vehicles carrying BOTH 7th-12th grade students AND 4th-6th grade students may now be dropped off in the upper-level carpool lane designated with cross-hatching on the pavement.  Because of the time difference in dismissal, those that are picking up elementary and secondary students together should wait until the later dismissal time of 3:15 P.M. (M-Th) and 1:30 P.M. (Fri.) to join the carpool line.   **REMINDER - there is to be NO drop-off or pick-up in front of the high school building...please proceed forward to the designated area.

2. For children's safety, there are to be NO drop-offs or pick-ups on Corona Avenue or on the access road leading to the lower-level parking lot (adjacent to the grass Soccer Field).
